Have you been wanting to plan a cosmetic procedure but don’t think you can afford it? There are more options available than you may realize. We are always happy to help you explore the financing options out there for your cosmetic, plastic or reconstructive surgery. Two payment options available for procedures at Vinings Surgery Center are FundMyDr.com Medical and Cosmetic Loans and CareCredit Patient Payment Plans. Here’s a little about each:
FundMyDr.com offers a wide variety of financing options for up to 60 months, with monthly payments as low as $60 a month. Unlike credit cards, the interest rates offered are always fixed, starting from 7.99%, depending on your credit rating. FundMyDr.com will work with those who have less than perfect credit, and they accept a co-signer to get approved. Financing is available up to $30,000, with interest-free programs for 6 to 12 months, depending on credit and procedure amount.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card with a credit line for health and beauty treatments and procedures. With many offers, you can avoid paying interest by making minimum monthly payments and paying the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. (Remember, interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional purchase is not paid in full within the promotional period.) Unlike a Visa or MasterCard, CareCredit is exclusively designed for healthcare services and you can avoid paying interest with many promotional options. Most cardholders opt for shorter term plans from 6 to 24 months. If you need more time to pay for your procedure, longer programs are offered with a reduced, fixed interest rate.
If you have questions about payments options for procedures, call (770) 955-9000 for more guidance.
Now that we’ve moved into a new year, you may be considering moving ahead with a change (big or small) in 2012. If you’re planning to have a cosmetic procedure this year, be sure to devote the needed time and attention to your decision-making process. There are many tools and guides available to help you make the choice that’s right for you—both now and in the future.
It’s important to ask yourself some key questions, and be complete and truthful with yourself in your answers. The most crucial thing to ask yourself is, “Why do I want to have this procedure?” While cosmetic procedures can certainly complement and boost other positive life changes, they should not be looked to as a way to completely change or overhaul your life. Make sure your goals for the procedure are realistic and a constructive part of a bigger picture of a healthy, balanced life.
Here are some more great questions to ask yourself as you decide whether a procedure is right for you.
For more in-depth reading, the book, The Essential Cosmetic Surgery Companion
