Payment of non-surgical treatments such as Botox® Cosmetic and fillers are made at the time of service by cash or credit card; we are unable to accept personal checks for these treatments. Payment for surgery may be made by cash, major credit card, or personal check. We also offer patient financing through Care Credit.
Payment for non-surgical services is expected at the time of service. All surgical services require full payment of surgical fees twenty days prior to any scheduled procedure. A deposit of $1,000 is required to schedule surgery. Surgical Center and Hospital fees will be billed directly to the patient by the facility. Each facility has specific payment policies that will be defined during the surgery scheduling process. Purely cosmetic services will not be billed to any third party insurer.
If your surgery is reconstructive in nature, your portion of any visit or service, such as a deductible or co-pay, is paid at the time of service. Please ask specifically about the insurance programs in which Dr. Hovsepian is enrolled. For insurance cases with which Dr. Hovsepian is not a preferred provider, payment is required in full at the time of service and is the responsibility of the patient. Our insurance liaison will work as your advocate to assist you through the pre-certification process and help determine the terms of your insurance coverage.
Dr. Hovsepian is not responsible for refunding any surgical fees or rescheduling fees that result from a patient’s non-compliance. The failure to follow pre-surgical instructions include: nicotine use, failure to avoid or to take specific medications as instructed, and failure to follow day of surgery instructions. Any surgical procedure rescheduled by the patient less than fourteen days prior to surgery or as the result of patient non-compliance, will incur a surgeon’s rescheduling fee; this does not include fees that may be charged by the surgical facility. All fees must be paid prior to confirming any new surgical date.
All surgical, cosmetic injection and skin care treatment recommendations are individualized just for you. Therefore, our fees are only provided in person, once you have been evaluated and an accurate assessment and appropriate recommendations for treatment are made.
