Deposits | Rio Bravo Reversal

Deposits

Starting Jan 1, 2023 – due to the turbulence in the economy, we will be starting a new deposit system to make scheduling easier and minimize the affect of financial hardships on our patients.

Deposits: Surgeries scheduled Jan 1 or later – deposit will be 250 non refundable deposit (instead of 650). Currently we have a partial refund (half) on the 650 deposit, so this will make any possible deposit loss less than in previous years.

Rescheduling: there will be a 175 rescheduling fee. You may reschedule twice with only a rescheduling fee, but after your third appointment, a new deposit will be required – followed by the same rescheduling process.

Any funds paid will still be deducted from your overall costs.

We will be using a combination of PayPal and Square for invoicing until we determine which program is most beneficial for patients and the hospital. Fees for payments seem to be the same with both companies. We hope this will help streamline the process (less regulations) and make things more affordable while prices (gas/food/ etc) continue to rise.

For additional information please email us at appts@riobravoreversal.com

Read Carefully:

By making a deposit, I confirm that I have read, understood, and agree to the following terms regarding my deposit:

  • a scheduling deposit is required at the time of scheduling my appointment to cover reservation, admin fees and will not be refundable.
  • a minimum of 2 weeks notice of rescheduling is required to transfer my deposit (first reschedule only)* (see below)
  • if I reschedule, my next appointment must take place within the scheduling (open calendar)  dates
  • I may be responsible for a rescheduling fee* if I cancel my surgery and later reschedule my appointment, or I do not pay the deposit on time.
  • I will be responsible for a rescheduling fee* if I do not pay the deposit and the hospital must cancel my date.
  • my appointment is scheduled even if I have not paid the deposit.
  • my deposit is due upon scheduling my surgery. If not received in 5 days, my surgery will be cancelled and a rescheduling fee will apply.

*All “fees” mentioned on this website are billed to the patient to cover actual expenses that have already been incurred by the patient and/or paid for by our office at the time of scheduling. We do try to keep fees as minimal as possible but these are costs for administration services (from sources outside our office) and are the responsibility of the patient.

Your deposit

Deposits are due at the time of making your appointment.

Please read the information below thoroughly for details regarding the deposit before choosing your surgery date. For questions, please feel free to email. Payment options are below.

Who must make a deposit?

Everyone who makes an appointment. Deposits are due at the time you make the appointment.

How will I make my deposit?

You will receive an email invoice which will allow you to use your credit or debit card to make your payment online. If you do not receive an email invoice, it means we do not have your email address. It is the patient responsibility to alert us if the invoice is not received.  If you have an issue just let us know, we will work with you on a resolution.

When will I make my deposit?

You will pay your deposit at the time of making your appointment (5 day grace period). You must email your contact information to the office, and we will email you an invoice with directions for paying your deposit. If the deposit is not received in 5 days of setting your date, your surgery date will  be cancelled and a rescheduling fee applied.

How much is my deposit? Does it apply to my surgery fee?

Your deposit will be $250 – due when you schedule. ($250 for vasectomy reversals / 350 for cosmetics). There will be a fee taken out by the payment processor for all transactions. The fee will be added to your balance (usually $10-$30 depending on the amount sent).

The deposit is deducted from your total surgery amount. The balance due will be paid at the hospital when you arrive for your surgery (cash only). Funding ministries should contact us about paying the balance. Fees for sending will be the responsibility of the patient.

Is the deposit refundable/transferable? What if I have to cancel or reschedule?

The deposit is automatically non-refundable- but may be transferred to a new surgery date twice, if guidelines are followed.  Please be sure to check with us to see if you have a credit.

SEE guidelines below for more details. If all guidelines are followed, you should receive up to 50% of your deposit as a refund.

How long will my deposit hold my surgery date? Is it transferable to another date?

Your deposit is valid until the date of your surgery, with some exceptions (see guidelines above and below about rescheduling). You may transfer your deposit to another date if the appropriate rescheduling guidelines above are met. Rescheduling in excess, not showing up, or not canceling your appointment 35 days in advance of your surgery may forfeit your deposit.

Can I pay my whole surgery in advance this way?

No, we no longer have a payment plan.
