Application for Credit & Consumer Credit Check
I/we understand that if I indicated that I wish to apply for Credit terms to pay monthly for the dental work not covered by the Grant, then the information submitted by me (the “Collected Information”) is being collected for the purpose of obtaining credit terms from Health Betterment Inc. (HBI) and is warranted to be true and complete.
HBI will use the Information you provide for the purpose of verifying your identity and to obtain your consumer credit bureau report as described below.
The Information that you provide will be compared against the Information contained in the consumer credit report we access to help confirm your identity. The consumer credit report will also be used to assess your application for potential credit terms that may allow you to make longer term payments for the part of your dental work that's not covered by your insurance or the grant. The credit check may affect your credit score.
Accordingly, if you have requested credit terms from us, you hereby authorize and consent to the collection of the Collected Information and to the making by HBI, its successors and assigns of whatever credit investigations and/or employment and income confirmations HBI or its successors and assigns may deem appropriate from time to time, and to the disclosure, sharing or exchange of the Collected Information and any report or information based thereon for these purposes with credit reporting agencies, and amongst HBI, its successors and assigns or any company with whom I/we have or propose to have a financial relationship.
Should you qualify for consideration of a loan from us, credit terms between 6 months and 5 years will be offered to you and HBI will confirm acceptance with your participating dentist. If you do not qualify for credit terms, we may invite you to provide a suitable co-signer to guarantee your loan.
Should the Information you provide not match the Information contained in your consumer credit report, you will not be able to complete the pre-qualification process for credit terms, however you will still be approved for the Grant and can complete the dental work you want done by providing the dentist with an upfront deposit and agreeing to a payment schedule that is acceptable to the dentist.
