Price and Fees
Cosmetic surgical procedures are not insured by Canadian public health providers. More specifically, fees for a cosmetic breast augmentation procedure in Montreal are not covered by the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec.
Price quotes are "global fees" designed to cover the usual costs of a routine uncomplicated primary breast augmentation with prosthetic breast implants. The price quote covers the following costs:
- Professional fees of the plastic surgeon.
- Professional fees of the anesthetist.
- Use of the surgery center for the surgical procedure. Includes use of the operating theater, recovery room, nursing care, health care technicians, medications, and medical supplies.
- Cost of breast implants.
- Routine post surgical care for 1 year .
The quoted "global fee" does not cover any costs associated with subsequent revisions and surgeries.
Financing and Payment
Accepted forms of payment include cash, certified checks, bank drafts, and debit card payments. Credit card payments are accepted with a surcharge applied (2-4% depending on the brand of credit card) to cover expenses from card processing. The surcharge varies with the particular brand of credit card (Visa, Mastercard, and American Express).
Patient's seeking a well planned schedule of payment can explore the options presented by Medicard. They are a reputable company offering financing to Canadian patients seeking cosmetic surgical procedures.
