How and when
should we make payment?
Please see our new -
Pre-Pay / Savings Plan
- or email us for details.
DEPOSIT: Your deposit will be paid at the time of making your
appointment and can be made online by instant payment (free) or with credit / debit card
(typically $35 fee from PayPal), or wire transfer (money gram only - there are extra fees to use this method of payment).
For more details please see the deposit page.
ADDITIONAL COSTS: Any pre-determined additional costs for
be paid in cash at the hospital, in addition to your surgery cost.
We cannot accept payment in advance - unless you are on the payment/savings plan.
BALANCE: The only method of payment at the hospital is cash (US
dollars). Traveler's checks, cashier's checks, money orders are
no longer accepted due to the high number of fraudulent payments
made to the hospital each year by patients to obtain free surgeries.
Payment is made in advance of surgery for this reason. You can pay
your balance in full online through PayPal if you have a payment plan set
There is a payment plan
savings account option if you
want to make payments towards your surgery while you are saving.
INSURANCE: the hospital cannot accept or file American insurance claims. You can pay
the full amount at the hospital and 'may' be able to get a reimbursement from your
insurance company but you will need to check with your provider to find out if this is
possible and what information would be needed. We will attempt to supply
any paperwork necessary to your insurance company.
FLEX PAY/EMPLOYEE MEDICAL ACCOUNTS - Unfortunately some of these cards do not work on our system
because we are not in the US and not able to be in the flex network. However,
you are welcome to try your card and see if it works.
If not, you can pay for your surgery out
of pocket, and you can be
reimbursed by the FSA company by providing your hospital receipts and
records. We will attempt to provide any
paperwork necessary (with 30 days notice) but please call your representative and
find out what receipts are needed well in advance of surgery.
FMLA/ SURGERY VERIFICATION/ RELEASE TO WORK - if you need
paperwork filled out for your job, we have a volunteer that will do that
during off hours. It can take up to several weeks so please be sure
to check with your employer to find out everything you need in advance and
send to our office as early as possible. There are no time
guarantees on any paperwork, but she will try to do them as quickly as
possible. Please note FMLA forms are a courtesy service and not
guaranteed. Surgery verification and release to work letters
can be provided within approximately a week.
