As the patient care coordinator, I get asked a lot of questions at every step of the transformation process. From financing to post op care, I’m here to answer all your questions and hopefully relieve any concerns about your procedure(s).
Having been the patient care coordinator for quite some time now, I’ve come across all types of questions. I must stress to never hesitate to ask me a question because you think it’s not important or doesn’t make sense. Chances are someone has already asked me! But, there are definitely a few questions that I get asked more often than the others. with this next series of 5 blog posts, I will review the 5 most popular questions in no particular order.
Question # 5: what type of financing is available?
here at Robert Frank MD Plastic Surgery, we’ve partnered up with CareCredit, a healthcare financing plan for procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. You can use your CareCredit card to finance all of your cosmetic expenses including:
- Breast Augmentation
- Face Lift
- Eye Surgery
- Botox Injections
- Restylane Injections
- Laser Procedures
- Tummy Tuck
The CareCredit card allows patients to spread out the cost of their procedure(s) into monthly payments. Here’s how it works:
- If approved, you receive an open line of credit that can be used for as many procedures as you like, as long as you have credit available. You can even use the card for other family members’ health and beauty needs, as long as there’s available credit.
- You can either choose no interest financing or low interest financing based on the options offered through Robert Frank MD Plastic Surgery at that time.
- The cost of procedures financed through the CareCredit plan range from $1-$25,000. keep in mind you must be approved for you credit line.
No interest Financing Options
For financing plans of 6, 12, or 18 months patients can pay for their procedures interest free, as long as it’s paid in full within the plan period. Patients can choose the 6 month plan for procedures $1 or more while the 12-18 month plans can be used for procedures of $300 or more.
Low interest Financing Options
CareCredit also offers low minimum monthly payment plans of 24, 36, 48 and 60 months. they offer a 14.9% APR which is lower than average credit cards. the 24, 36, and 48 month plans are available for procedures of $1,000 or more, and the 60 month plan is available for procedures of $2,500 or more.
