Financing Your Procedure at Sarasota Plastic Surgery

PATIENT FINANCING OPTIONS at sarasota plastic surgery

At Sarasota Plastic Surgery, we will help you make your dream of aesthetic enhancement a reality. 

We offer many innovative and convenient financing options through our patient financing partner, Care Credit, who feature 0% interest financing for up to 12 months. We have handpicked this company because of their track record of successfully working to help our patients obtain financing at a reasonable cost and without hidden fees.

OUR PAYMENT POLICY

We accept cash, checks, and money orders, as well as Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, and American Express cards. Our office also offers financing options through CareCredit patient financing. Interest-free plans are available. Patients and prospective patients have a right to receive a personalized estimate of services from Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Please visit https://pricing.FloridaHealthFinder.gov for information on payments made to facilities for defined service bundles and procedures. Please note that the service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of costs that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services and that actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient.

Cancellation Policy

  • Patients will be charged $125.00 for “no show appointments” and for appointments canceled without a 24-hour advance notice. 
  • Habitually missing or changing appointments is grounds for dismissal from the practice.  This applies to surgeon appointments and skin care appointments.

As a courtesy, we attempt to remind patients by phone of their scheduled appointments.  However, it is the patient’s responsibility to keep his/her appointments whether or not a reminder call is received.

Surgical Fees

  • Payment is due in full 3 weeks (21 days) prior to the scheduled surgery date.  We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, CareCredit/Alphaeon, and Cashier Checks/Personal Checks.  WE DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARD CHECKS. All personal checks will be processed through TeleCheck as an electronic transfer.
  • If your surgery is cancelled or postponed 3 weeks (21 days) prior to surgery, your fees will be refunded.  If your surgery is cancelled within the 3 weeks (21 days), you will be charged a $500.00 administrative fee and a fee for any services provided; such as laboratory work or skin care services.  If your surgery is cancelled within seven (7) business days of your surgical date, an additional administrative fee of 25% of your total charges will be withheld from your refund.  If your surgery is cancelled the day of the procedure, you will be charged 50% of the total charges.
  • If you are having General Anesthesia, the cost quoted is based on the estimated time of the procedure. If the procedure time is longer, you will be billed for the additional anesthesia time. Anesthesia fees are $175.00 per additional 30 minutes. If you have any questions regarding anesthesia billing please contact them directly at Envision Physician Services 7700 West Sunrise Blvd Plantation, FL 33322,
  • Office #1(800)296-2611. 
  • In the event that revision surgery is needed or you experience a complication following surgery, you may incur additional fees.
  • Breast Reduction Procedures are considered cosmetic, unless deemed medically necessary per your insurance policy.  We will file with your insurance as a courtesy; however, this does not guarantee your insurance company will reimburse. 
  • All tissue that is removed during surgery will be sent to Pathology. The patient will be responsible for these charges.  It is the patient’s responsibility to notify us regarding where their insurance prefers pathology to be sent to avoid out-of-network charges. Pathology will be sent to SaraPath Diagnostics unless the patient request another laboratory. All questions regarding pathology please contact SARAPATH Client Services Center (CSC) Main: 941.362.8900 or Toll Free: 877.362.9144 www.sarapath.com
  • If postponing a surgery more than two (2) times, a 50% deposit will be required to hold a new surgical date and will be forfeited if date needs to be changed.  In addition, such changes could result in dismissal from our practice at the surgeon’s discretion.
  • The services that are performed and paid for using a credit card or debit card are not eligible for credit card challenge.  By signing this form, you are agreeing you will not challenge credit card payments once a service has been rendered.  The practice encourages a complete post-op care and follow-up interaction to address any issues that might arise following services rendered.
  • Complimentary Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® “Touch Up” appointments will only be honored between week two (2) and four (4) post initial injection.  After four (4) weeks standard fees will apply.
  • The policies listed above will be applied in every situation.
