Flexible options for financing your treatment.



Shields understands the burden of medical bills can be overwhelming—but it doesn’t have to be. Our financial specialists assist our patients with everything from finding the price of a procedure to determining the right financing option.

For patients on a high-deductible health plan or without insurance coverage, Shields offers financing options through Care Credit (for MRI and PET/CT) and ClearBalance (for Radiation Oncology).

  • Care Credit (for MRI and PET/CT patients) offers a choice of payment plans with no interest or extended terms with very low interest. Applying for Care Credit is quick and easy. The application can be completed online at carecredit.com or by phone at (800) 365-8295.*
  • ClearBalance® (for radiation therapy patients) offers a solution for those unable to pay promptly for their medical services. For additional information, contact Shields Radiation Oncology Centers at 1-800-258-4674 ext. 1551.
