If you are thinking about plastic or cosmetic surgery, cost is always an important consideration.
Most reconstructive plastic surgery procedures are considered medically necessary and are covered by insurance. Cosmetic procedures are not typically covered by insurance. There are some procedures that fall into a ‘grey-area’ and may be covered by insurance in certain situations. If you have a question about insurance coverage, Dr. Chen’s staff can help you gather more information.
If plastic surgery cost is not covered by insurance, which is usually the case, you still have several options to consider. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. Other options include lending companies, some of which specialize in financing for medical procedures. Dr. Chen and UConn Health are not affiliated with any lending company.
If you would like additional information about plastic surgery and associated costs, please let us know. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have or to schedule a initial plastic surgery consultation during which, these topics can be discussed.
