The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. Individuals who are not willing to undergo and/or incur charges for any additional required surgery should not proceed with initial breast augmentation.
You must acknowledge that although a good outcome is expected and a reasonable effort has been made to establish realistic expectations, there cannot be any warranty, expressed or implied, as to the results that may be obtained.
In cosmetic and medical procedures there are certain unforeseen problems that will happen statistically. Should you undergo any future treatment (medically necessary or otherwise), you will be financially responsible for all costs associated, incurred and charged as a result.
You must accept that the need for, and timing of, revisions and touch-ups will be determined solely by your surgeon, as will the amount of the surgeon’s fee.
Extra documentation might be required by your employer for your surgery. As this is not considered usual and customary paperwork, there will be an additional fee for this service.
Most health insurance companies exclude coverage for cosmetic surgical operations or any resulting complications. Please carefully review your health insurance policy. Most insurance plans exclude coverage for secondary or revisionary surgery due to complications of cosmetic surgery. Generally, surgery to deal with cosmetic complications are not carried out within the public hospital system and are not generally covered by Medicare.
Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your health insurance provider, and it is important that you understand its provisions. Your surgeon cannot guarantee payment on a claim, and you must take full responsibility for checking the status of your claim and verification of item numbers for the procedure (if applicable) prior to your surgery.
Your surgeon and team will not accept the responsibility for collection or negotiation with your insurance carrier, and all fees must be paid in full regardless of intended or pending claims or rebate.
