Plastic surgery can be just as much of an investment as buying a first car or purchasing a first home; all marking new chapters in life that can be an exciting time. At Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. it’s understood that proper financial planning can play an important role for patients. A number of financing and bill pay options are provided to suit each patient’s individual needs – including: online bill pay, health insurance coverage, and Care Credit® patient financing plan.
Patients are constantly on the move, and with busy schedules, paying bills can get quite involved. To make bill-pay more convenient, Atlanta Plastic Surgery has added a brand new online bill-pay service, easily accessible from the web site. This new service allows patients to pay for procedures using major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover from the comforts of home or on the go with a mobile device.
For patients undergoing medically necessary or reconstructive surgery, Atlanta Plastic Surgery is proud to accept health insurance from Humana®, Blue Cross Blue Shield®, Aetna®, Cigna®, United Health Care® and, in some cases, Kaiser Permanente®. Depending on the insurance coverage, insurance providers may cover some reconstructive surgery procedures including breast reconstruction and facial reconstruction, however coverage is not guaranteed. Cosmetic procedures, like breast augmentation or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) are not covered by insurance. Ultimately, the determination of coverage must be made by each individual insurance provider on a case-by-case basis, and must be pre-authorized prior to any procedure preformed. It is important for Atlanta Plastic Surgery patients to contact an individual Atlanta Plastic Surgery physician to find out if a specific insurance plan is accepted as NOT ALL physicians accept each and every health insurance plan.
Additionally, Atlanta Plastic Surgery provides patient financing through Care Credit®, a credit card specifically for medical payments that can be used on a multitude of procedures from reconstruction to cosmetic non-surgical anti-aging. Care Credit® allows patients to choose between 6, 12, 18, and 24 month, interest free payment plans, customized to fit personal financial needs, as long as payments are made within the specified promotional period.
The providers of Atlanta Plastic Surgery maintain open door policies and encourage patients to contact them with any specific questions concerning the financial planning of a procedure. For more information, contact us today and stay connected on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
