Financing Bariatric Surgery
The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, led by pre-eminent bariatric surgeon, Dr. Wiljon W. Beltre, provides proven and advanced surgical procedures related to weight loss and obesity. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs and potential financial options.
The patient will be explained various financial mechanisms in accordance with their financial needs and possibility of insurance coverage. The team of professionals at Dr. Beltre’s practice will work closely with the patient to navigate the paperwork that may be required for financing approvals. Patients seeking bariatric surgery and other procedures in Orlando, Tampa, Altamonte Springs, Central Florida, and surrounding communities may consult with Dr. Beltre.
As an experienced bariatric surgeon, Dr. Beltre understands that the patient may require support and guidance with regard to the financing aspects of the procedure. Therefore, he has ensured in-house financing support for the patients through CareCredit and Springstone – two of the leading healthcare-specific financing agencies.
Both financial options will enable the patient to borrow money at very low rates of the interest as a part of compassionate finance. The interest rate may even be 0% in some cases. Terms and conditions are flexible to suit the needs of most patients. Dr. Beltre believes that bariatric surgery and other weight loss procedures can be life-changing, and financial constraints should not be the reason to avoid these procedures. He receives patients from Orlando, Tampa, Altamonte Springs, Central Florida, and surrounding locations.
The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery officially provides CareCredit, which is the leading patient payment program in the country. CareCredit healthcare credit card enables a patient to finance up to 100% of their surgery and related costs, including additional medical expenses. The program does not involve any upfront costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties.
CareCredit offers a flexible range of low interest financing options, including short-term finance for six to 24 months. No interest loans are provided on purchases of $200. All the patient is required to ensure is that the minimally monthly installments are paid on time and the full amount is paid off by the end of the loan term. Long-term financing plans ranging from 24 to 60 months are also available at low and fixed rates of interest.
Springstone is a personal financing option that resembles a bank loan, but offers greater flexibility and variety of plans. The financing plans are designed to cover specifically surgical and medical procedures from authorized centers such as Dr. Beltre’s practice. The patient may even combine fees from multiple practices into a single, monthly payment. No down payments or pre-payment penalties are involved.
Springstone financing is ideal for handling the costs of pre- and post-op clearances and even follow-up visits that are required in case of metabolic surgery. No payment becomes due for the first three to seven weeks with Springstone, which allows the patient enough time to focus on recovery at first. Offers from Springstone are affordable and flexible with both short-term and long-term financing options.
