When considering whether or not to schedule a plastic surgery procedure, a main concern of many patients is the cost of the procedure. The staff at The Plastic Surgery Group recognizes that spending money on cosmetic or reconstructive surgery can be difficult and is often a deciding factor for whether or not the potential patient chooses to move forward. Prior to making your decision, we want to ensure you are well informed about your financial responsibilities and the options available for your personal financial situation.
Below are a few frequently asked questions with regard to paying for your plastic surgery procedure.
I want to have a consultation with one of the doctors. How much does that cost?
Your initial consultation with one of our doctors will be conducted free of charge.
I’ve decided to have my procedure. Will my insurance cover it?
If you are electing to have cosmetic surgery done, most medical insurance providers will not cover the costs. You will sign a waiver acknowledging the procedure is purely for cosmetic purposes and that no doctor has advised they are of medical necessity. While cosmetic surgeries are not covered, certain services such as breast reconstruction and eyelid surgeries or nose surgeries done for functional purposes are often covered by insurance providers. If you are undergoing a reconstructive surgery, you will certainly want to contact your insurance provider.
When is my final payment due?
Your final payment is due to The Plastic Surgery Group 10 days prior to your scheduled procedure.
Are there payment options allowing me to pay over time?
Financing is available to qualified applicants through CareCredit™, which can provide you with the loan necessary to pay for your procedure. Your loan papers must be signed 10 days prior to your surgery.
What methods of payment do you accept?
In addition to CareCredit, we accept VISA, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, bank checks and cash.
If I cancel my procedure, do I lose any money?
That is generally not the case, especially when the procedure is rescheduled. Procedures cancelled with very little or no notice may be subject to a 10% fee.
