Frequently Asked Questions about Financing and Insurance

At Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. (APS) we make every effort to work with our patients at every stage of their plastic surgery journey to help them meet their individual aesthetic goals.  From consultations to financing, we hear lots of great questions from our cosmetic and reconstructive surgery patients.  Below we will answer some of our patients’ most frequently asked questions about insurance coverage and financing to help get your financial planning started:

front-financingWhat procedures can be covered by insurance?

Health insurance will cover most reconstructive surgery procedures, including breast reconstruction and facial reconstruction; however cosmetic procedures (like breast augmentation or tummy tuck surgery) is generally not covered.  There is a chance that some cosmetic procedures that have medical benefits, like breast reduction surgery, may be covered in certain instances.  Insurance companies have unique plans and patient coverage for plastic surgery procedures must be determined by the individual insurance company for your specific coverage.

Do all APS doctors accept insurance?

While all of our providers accept some forms of insurance, each provider may not universally accept the same types.  That is why it is important that you contact your individual Atlanta Plastic Surgery physician in order to find out if they accept your specific insurance plan or not.

What types of insurance do you accept?

Currently, all providers with Atlanta Plastic Surgery accept Humana®.  In addition, certain individual APS surgeons may also accept Blue Cross Blue Shield®, Aetna®, Cigna®, or United Health Care®.  Check with your specific physician to determine which insurance is accepted.

If I don’t have insurance, are there financing options available?

Atlanta Plastic Surgery provides patient financing through Care Credit®, which can be used on everything from minimally invasive anti-aging procedures to full facial plastic surgery and more.  Care Credit® payment plans can be structured for 6, 12, 18, or 24 month schedules in order to suit your individual financial needs.  We also accept major credit cards.
