We find that communication with our patients regarding our financial policy assists us in providing the best service to you. Therefore, we take this opportunity to answer some of the most commonly asked questions.
Payment for cosmetic surgery is to be paid in full before the surgery is performed. The fee paid for cosmetic surgery is a comprehensive fee that covers the anesthesia, surgical facility and doctor’s charges. If, after your consultation for plastic surgery, you have the surgery performed within 90 days, the fee for the consultation will be deducted from the total surgical fee. If the surgery is performed after 90 days, the consultation fee will not be deducted from the total surgical fee.
We accept cash, checks, and the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. We also work with healthcare financing companies.
Payment and Insurance
The doctor’s service is provided to you and not an insurance company. We cannot render service on an assumption that charges will be paid by the insurance company. However, as a courtesy to our patients, we will bill your insurance company for you but we expect you to pay the co-pay / co-insurance at the time of service. If the insurance company has not paid within a reasonable length of time (45 days), we will expect you to pay the balance of your bill in full.
We participate with a number of insurance/PPO plans. It is difficult to list all of them because of the rate of change in insurance plans. We will be glad to let you know if we participate with your insurance plan.
Payment is due at the time of service. If you are unable to pay in full it will be necessary to set up a payment plan. If this situation is necessary for you, please make arrangements before leaving our office. We request 25% payment of your total bill as the down payment and as the monthly payment amount.
