Our Financial Policy

Insurance Related Services

It is the patient’s responsibility to know and understand their insurance plan; however, we work diligently with you and your insurance for payment of services. If you have insurance, we will contact them to verify your benefits prior to your surgery appointment. We encourage you to verify your benefits with your insurance carrier as well. 

 

You should ask about the following items:

 

  • Physician and Hospital participation in your plan

  • Deductible/and other out-of-pocket expenses

  • Is this procedure a covered benefit with your group

  • Referrals needed

  • Maximum benefits for surgical services

 

Upon request, we will provide you with an estimate of your patient portion for the physicians' services before your scheduled surgery based upon the best available information we have received from your insurance carrier.  If you have an estimated portion that is more than $250.00 we may require pre-payment of your estimated deductible/copay before the scheduled surgery date. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.  A statement will be sent to the guarantor (patient or guardian financially responsible).

 

If we are not providers under your plan AND you do not have out-of-network benefits, the cost of surgery is due two weeks before your scheduled date.

 

In compliance with the guidelines established by the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, it is our policy to require prepayment on all cosmetic surgeries.

Payment types we accept:

  • Personal Check or Money Order

  • Cash, Certified Cashier check

  • Credit Cards: We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover

  • Insurance Assignment: We work with most insurance companies. We understand the value of insurance benefits and we will assist you in obtaining your MAXIMUM allowance.​

  • Financing: We offer CareCredit Financing for your financing needs; please inquire with our business office if you have questions regarding this option.  Please be aware that the facility that you may be having surgery at may not accept this program and you would need to make another form of payment to them.

If you have any questions regarding your physician’s bill or the information contained in this policy, please contact our business office at 952-925-1111.
