  • Here is some information to help guide you regarding surgical fees.
  • My consult fees are to be paid in full, in cash/or card before consult-you will receive a receipt by my staff and a formal receipt via email/post by my billing agency in Johannesburg.

 

 

  • Cosmetic procedures are not covered by medical aids.
  • My contract is with you, the patient, and it is your responsibility to communicate with them regarding what treatment is proposed [I will give you the ICD-10 and treatment/billing code which will determine the cost.]
  • Your medical aid might cover a portion of the fee and it is your responsibility to settle the balance.
  • I charge three times NHRPL/medical aid rates set by South African medical association.
  • If you wish to have a procedure done in the rooms-you will have to pay on the day, a receipt will be posted to you-and it is your responsibility to claim from your medical aid. These procedures are often funded from your savings-if depleted-you will be liable.
  • It may be possible to motivate to do the procedure in hospital as a day procedure on another date.

BILLING POLICY

MEDICAL AID

COSMETIC PROCEDURES

  • Unfortunately these procedures are not covered by medical aids.
  • When you’re considering a procedure-you will be given a quote which includes:
    •      My surgical fee
    •      My Anaesthetists fee
    •      The hospital fee[theatre time]
    •      Any post operative garment

 

  • This fee is payable a week prior to the procedure-banking details will be made available to you.
  • I do not offer any payment plans for cosmetic procedures, however there is a company[First Health Finance] of which i have no affiliation nor benefits, and they offer financial aid to assist paying for these procedures.
  • The practice of operating on individuals is never an exact science despite being a qualified super-specialist.
  • Complications do arise, e.g. infection/blood clots/wound breakdown. Should any additional surgical procedure/treatment be necessary because of complications or a less than optimal result, Dr Singh will carry this out at his discretion without further charge-besides consumables used. You, the patient will be liable for any additional hospital/anaesthetic fees.

I sincerely hope this has been of assistance- and often- the most difficult part is communicating/motivating to have procedures done through medical aids.
