Dear clients, we will be closed for the Holidays from 12pm on December 24th until 9am on January 4th. You are welcome to send e-mails and leave voicemails and we will get back to them after the New Year. We wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Cosmetic surgery is a very personal experience, so please keep in mind that actual prices depend on your specific anatomy, operating time involved, surgical technique used, and type of anesthesia. Our specialists will give you an individual fee quote at your personal consultation. To get a general idea of our prices please call our office 206-575-0300.
The fees indicated on the quote you have been or will be given are for the procedures listed and reflect a compassionate care rate for self-pay patients. Please review the quote to ensure all desired services are included. Any additional discounts given are for the procedural plan as listed. Deviation from that plan may result in loss of discount. Dr. Mangubat’s quotes are an estimate only and are subject to change at the doctor’s discretion. His quotes for self-pay patients are inclusive of the following expenses: all operating room (facility) fees, doctor’s fees, anesthesia, implants (when applicable), pre-op and post-op visits.
Fees do not include prescription drugs, necessary laboratory fees or additional garments. Any revisions or touch ups are subject to additional facility, doctor and anesthesia fees. In the event that Lab Work/EKG/Medical Clearance is required prior to surgery, we must receive documentation prior to your pre-operative appointment or we reserve the right to cancel surgery (please refer to our cancellation policy).
Booking Surgery: A deposit of $1,000.00 is due at the time you schedule your surgery to reserve the surgery day. Surgery times are scheduled to benefit all patients as determined by the doctor. As such, your time may change so we ask that all patients be flexible with the actual time of their surgery. A deposit holds a date for surgery, not the time. The remainder of the procedure fee is due two (2) weeks (14 days) prior to surgery or at the pre-operative appointment, whichever comes first.
Surgery Days: Dr. Mangubat’s surgery days are Wednesday and Thursday 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Friday 8:00 am to 1:00pm. Surgeries are performed at our Tukwila surgery center at 16400 Southcenter Parkway, Suite 101. Available days should be discussed with our front office staff.
Types of Payment: Payments may be made to our office by cash, check, cashier’s check, money order, Visa, MasterCard or through an approved finance company. Dr. Mangubat also accepts Discover and American Express. Third party and business checks are not accepted. Personal checks cannot be accepted less than two (2) weeks (14 days) prior to surgery.
Cancellation Policy: The deposit is fully refundable up to fifteen (15) days prior to surgery. Surgery cancellations within 1-2 weeks (8-14 days) of surgery are eligible for a 50% refund. Surgery cancellations within 7 days of surgery are not eligible for a refund.
For Insurance Patients
Our Ambulatory Surgical Facility here at La Belle Vie Cosmetic Surgery Center and E Antonio Mangubat, M.D. are not in-network with any insurance companies. On a case by case basis a few insurance companies will grant a benefit exception and pay our facility and related charges at the in-network benefit level, this is negotiated prior to any services being rendered and you will be advised of this approval.
Some of the procedures we provide may be covered by insurance. Our insurance coordinator or front office staff can confirm if the procedure you are considering can be billed to your insurance. If your surgery can be billed, please be sure you have completed the necessary insurance paperwork and provided us with a copy of your insurance card. Our insurance coordinator will verify benefits, obtain pre-authorization and submit all covered charges to your insurance company.
You will be responsible for all deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance amounts or any other patient responsibility indicated by your insurance carrier or our financial policies, which are not otherwise covered by an accepted supplemental insurance.
Booking Surgery: Surgery can be scheduled once we have received either a signed letter of agreement from your insurance carrier, a prior authorization approval, or it has been verified that prior authorization is not required by you insurance carrier. Surgery times are scheduled to benefit all patients as determined by our surgeons. Thus, your time may change so we ask that all patients be flexible with the actual time of their surgery. Any patient cost shares for pre-operative visits and surgery, such as deductibles, co-pays and co-insurances are due at the pre-operative appointment, which is usually scheduled for 10-14 days, but can be as much as 30 days before the scheduled surgery appointment.
Surgery Days: Dr. Mangubat’s surgery days are Wednesday and Thursday 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Friday 8:00 am to 1:00pm. Surgeries are performed at our Tukwila surgery center at 16400 Southcenter Parkway, Suite 101. Available days should be discussed with someone at the front desk.
Types of Payment: Payments for any patient cost-shares may be made to our office by cash, check, cashier’s check, money order, Visa, MasterCard or through an approved finance company. Dr. Mangubat also accepts Discover and American Express. Third party and business checks are not accepted. Personal checks will not be accepted less than two (2) weeks (14 days) prior to surgery.
Cancellation Policy: We do require 2 weeks (14 days) notice if you need to cancel your surgery. If surgery is cancelled with less than 2 weeks’ notice, you may forfeit part or all of the fees or deposit already paid.
Lapse of Coverage or Non-Payment by Insurance: You are responsible for ensuring there is no lapse in coverage for services provided. If there are any lapses in insurance or your policy does not cover certain services, you are responsible for all charges. Most insurances cover at least part of a charge but if you have any questions on coverage we encourage you to talk to our insurance coordinator or call your insurance provider.
Change in Insurance Information: You are responsible for informing us of any changes in your insurance status. If you received a new insurance card or have any changes in insurance provider, policy, or coverage, please let our office know as soon as possible. It is important to keep this information up to date so that your medical claims are paid correctly and promptly. If your insurance changes after prior authorization has been obtained, a new prior authorization may be required.
Collections: Should collection proceedings or other legal action become necessary to collect an overdue or delinquent account, you understand that La Belle Vie has the right to disclose to an outside collection agency or attorney all relevant personal and account information necessary to collect payment for services rendered. You are responsible for all costs of collection including, but not limited to: late fees, interest due as a result of delinquency, all court costs and fees to the extent allowed by law. If your account is referred to a collection agency, attorney, court, or the past due status is reported to a credit reporting agency, it may have an adverse effect on your credit history; and related portions of your account, including the fact that you received treatment at our offices, may become a matter of public record.
