Reconstructive Surgery Costs:
Many cosmetic surgery procedures are reconstructive in nature and are thus covered by your health insurance plan. If Dr. Tehrani determines during your initial consultation that your need is medically necessary, he will work closely with your insurance provider to give medical documentation and obtain authorization for surgical services. Once surgical authorization is obtained from the insurance company, the surgery can be scheduled.
Please note that you remain responsible for any co-payments or deductibles your insurance company may require. Please also note that Dr. Tehrani is not a participant in any HMO insurance plans. Out of Network benefits are required for services and procedures at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery. Therefore, a referral form is not required from your Primary Care Provider (PCP) before your initial consultation.
Our staff deals with many insurance companies. Some companies offer up to six medical plans. Because a lot of companies frequently change policies, it is sometimes difficult to accurately estimate our patient’s insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us abreast of any changes to your insurance. It is crucial that all information we have about you is current. All co-payments are payable when you check in at the front desk.
Private and Group Insurance: As a courtesy, we will file your insurance claims for you. Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you. If you have deposited an excessive co-payment, it will be refunded to you.
Plastic Surgery Costs:
Your insurance company will not cover costs for any services it does not consider medically necessary. If that is the case, you will be responsible for all costs and fees associated with your care in Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics. Unlike many other practices, our initial consultations for a cosmetic surgery treatment are FREE.
If you indicate that you are interested in having cosmetic surgery at the end of your consultation, our office will be able to provide you with an estimate for the surgery. This quote will include the surgeon’s fees, hospital fees, and anesthesia fees (where applicable). Costs of surgery can vary considerably, depending on the type and length of the procedure. For example, gynecomastia surgery prices are very different from the price of liposuction. All costs for cosmetic surgery must be paid prior to surgery.
If you have any problems or questions, please contact our well-informed staff:
