financingFinancing your plastic surgery is easy with our many payment options and flexible payment arrangements!

Payment Options

For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and most major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard and Carecredit). Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.

Insurance

Our office currently accepts the following insurance plans:

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • Medicare
  • Insurances with Out of Network Benefits

As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

If you have questions regarding the billing of your services please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you in financially preparing for your procedure!
