wait - we offer a pre-payment /savings plan account option.

send money without fees being added)

24 months) and will allow you to
pay on your scheduled surgery in advance or
begin a savings account for a future surgery (not scheduled)

you wish, no maximum
(unless you are scheduled, then you should make a payment (any amount) each
month until surgery) up to 2 years. Minimum payments should be $5 or
above. You do not have to
have a surgery date scheduled to start your plan, and you do not have to
pay for your surgery in full before you can schedule.
You may schedule at any time during your plan and pay the balance at the
hospital at the time of surgery.
We do not accept payments 'after' surgery.

you are not willing to pay the fee. If you request an account be set
up, you will owe the deposit whether you use the account or not.

pay the scheduling deposit and another invoice to pay the payplan deposit. Monthly payments are mandatory if you
are scheduled and on the payment plan, minimum amount is $5 due to paypal
fees - and a monthly payment is required to remain active. If you schedule while on the payment plan, $650
will be used from your account for your scheduling deposit or you can
request an invoice to pay the deposit separately. If that
amount is not available in your account, we will send an invoice for the difference.

months. The account will be canceled after 24 months and any refundable payments
will be returned. Portions of the payments may not be
refundable (deposit, fees, etc). If your plan is
canceled and you need to restart your plan, a new fee will apply (105).

will need to set up a new account should you decide to restart your
payment plan. A new fee will be required each time you start a new plan.

receiver) should keep accurate records of all payments. Please be sure to
keep your payment receipts (you should always receive an online receipt).
Final payments on the
account prior to surgery must be in a minimum of 5-7 days prior to surgery
so they can be processed for your hospital payment.

a statement on request at any time.
Fees: PayPal fees
are always the responsibility of the patient. If you send funds in a
way that PayPal removes fees, you will only be credited for the amount we
actually receive. It is best to add funds to your PayPal account before
sending, and use friends/family (most of the funds are yours until
transferred for surgery) for less or no fees.
Currency: Please do NOT send MXN funds. Due to the exchange rate
any amounts you send today may not be worth the same amount a year from now
when you have surgery. You could potentially devalue your account this
way, so please be sure to send only US funds.
