Financing & Payment Information
The high quality of personalized care that Dr. Ghavami provides each of his patients is made more available — and affordable — through the financing options he provides. If you are looking to fund your plastic surgery procedure, you may wish to read more about CareCredit financing, which creates affordable monthly payment plans suitable for every budget. Dr. Ghavami accepts the most standard forms of payment, and outlines payment terms, insurance and fee information here so that you can plan ahead for your plastic surgery expenses.
Acceptable Forms of Payment
Dr. Ghavami accepts all forms of payment, including:
- Cashier’s check
- American Express
- CareCredit financing (see below)
- Alphaeon financing
The doctor does not accept the following: online payments, money wires, account transfers or checks (personal or business).
Aside from payments made through a CareCredit financing plan or insurance, all payments for plastic surgery expenses need to be paid in full two weeks prior to the date of surgery, otherwise a penalty fee will be incurred.
If a person other than the patient is paying for the procedure and/or related fees, a credit card authorization that is signed and dated by the person paying, along with a copy of the credit card (front and back) and an original and legal ID, will be needed in order to authenticate the transaction.
Dr. Ghavami is pleased to note that he works exclusively with Care Credit to offer his patients affordable monthly payment plans, including extended plans that range from two to five years. To find out if you qualify, complete the CareCredit online application.
Our practice is not in network with any insurances and most of our procedures cannot be covered by insurance. Some procedures that are deemed medically necessary may be covered by certain PPO plans with an out-of-network benefits option for specialists/surgeons. In those cases, anesthesia fees and fees related to the outpatient surgical center may or may not also be covered by the PPO insurance plan.
Although there is a consultation fee, it will be applied to the procedure fee should you decide to go ahead with the surgery.
