INSURANCE: Johnson C. Lee, MD Plastic Surgery Inc. participates with Medicare and is out-of-network for all other insurance companies. We do not accept Medicaid. Your insurance policy is a contract between YOU and your insurance COMPANY. If your plan allows you to go out of network, as a courtesy to you, we will file your insurance claim. If we receive a check from your insurance carrier, we will refund any overpayment to you. Our team is committed to working with any insurance company and patient to provide reasonable and affordable care for medically necessary procedures.
PAYMENT: Payment is due at the time of service unless arrangements have been made in advance with your insurance or finance company. It is your responsibility to provide current and updated insurance information, which includes bringing your insurance card to the appointment with you so we may make a copy. We accept cashier’s check, wire transfer, and all major credit cards. We do not accept cash.
SURGERY FEES: Quoted surgeon’s fees will be in effect for 90 days. All other fees (anesthesia, operating room, implant) are estimates only. Quoted fees reflect the cosmetic portion of your surgery. If we are billing a portion of your surgery to your insurance company, it is a separate component. If pathology labs, EKG or chest XRay are found to be medically necessary prior to surgery, this is a separate cost and your responsibility. If lab work is needed pre or post-operatively, they will bill you or your insurance plan. As prescription medications vary from patient to patient, they are a separate expense and are not included in any quote. Any additional scar therapies and/or laser treatments are not included in the surgical quote unless otherwise specified. All elective procedures require $1000 or half (1/2) of the surgeon fee as a non-refundable deposit to be scheduled. All payments for
REVISIONAL SURGERY: Cosmetic surgery is real surgery and involves both risks and benefits associated with the surgical healing process. Healing varies from patient to patient and occasionally, a revision (touch up) procedure may be necessary and beneficial. The possible outcomes that may benefit from a touch-up include, but are not limited to, the following: unfavorable scar, unfavorable shape, size and or contour, scar contracture (excess firmness). We are committed to providing you with the best possible results that can reasonably be achieved for your particular surgical outcome. If a touch-up procedure is advisable (as determined by the doctor) your cost will be limited to anesthesia and operating room fees. The fee will be determined by time in the operating room.
CANCELLATIONS: If you should cancel your surgery for any reason after it has been scheduled with less than ten working days notice, half (1/2) of surgeon fee will be nonrefundable to cover rescheduling costs, any contract labor, supplies and/or equipment that has been arranged for your case. If you cancel your procedure because we are unable to obtain medical clearance (i.e. you are not medically stable for surgery) or a similar reason, your payment will be refunded after review by our corporate office. If you reschedule your surgery more than once, we will charge a $500 rescheduling fee.
FINANCING: Financing is available. All arrangements should be made prior to your pre-op appointment. The office is able to assist you during your visit.
