New Patient Information

Insurance
We accept and file most insurance policies. However, it is the responsibility of the patient to understand the individual benefit plan they participate in. Most insurance plans have a yearly deductible to meet plus an out-of-pocket co-insurance that the patient is responsible for and is due prior to surgery. Please review your coverage with an insurance representative.

Questions about our plastic surgery fees and payment options are always welcome. We want you to be comfortable with all aspects of our plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery services we will be providing.

While our plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery services and rates will of course vary from patient to patient, a deposit is required in ordered to schedule your surgery. Payment for all cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures are due in full two weeks prior to your scheduled surgery.

Returned Checks
A $20 fee will be charged to your account for each check returned by the bank.

Collections Policy
Our policy is to be fiscally responsible and expect you to be the same. We will be happy to work with you to respond to your financial needs. If, however, you are not cooperative with these efforts, as a last resort we will refer your account to a collection agency.

Telephone Calls
We encourage you to call us if you have any questions about your care or about services we provide. If you need to speak with the doctor and she is busy caring for a patient, she will call you back during her call-back period, so that she can give your call the attention it deserves without infringing on the other patient’s time.

In Summary
We can give you the best care if you provide us with feedback on your experience with us and our office. This information helps us make changes and improve the quality of your service. Please ask us any questions that you may have, whether it concerns a procedure, policy or payment issue. We will do our best to assist you.

Financing
CareCredit is a simple way to consolidate and manage certain out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, because it is a credit card with a revolving line of credit that can be used repeatedly and for any family member. CareCredit offers two basic payment plans to meet an individual’s financial needs:

Under the No Interest Plans for 6, 12, 18 or 24 months, each month you only need to pay the required minimum monthly payment and pay off the remaining balance within the promotional period to avoid interest and pay only the amount financed. Future minimum payments will vary based on amount and timing of payments, interest rate and other charges added to the account.

Extended Payment Plans for 24, 36, 48 or 60 months. These plans carry an interest rate that is more competitive than most bankcards and feature a fixed, monthly payment and a longer term.

At the Golden Isles Center for Plastic Surgery, we make every effort to ensure our patients can afford the cosmetic surgery they desire. We currently work with CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending to offer you a range of low monthly payment plans and easy financing.
