Take Control of Your Healthcare
When you are ready to shop for elective aesthetic medical and dental procedures, how do you now choose physicians or dentists? The Yellow Pages? A referral service? From your family doctor, maybe a friend's recommendation? Media advertisement?
You can take control of your own healthcare by utilizing MedicineOnline.com's Bid For Surgery to investigate and evaluate total procedure fees and credentials of doctors of choice. It's easy, fast and free.
Bid For Surgery's competitive bidding process assists you in exercising freedom of choice based on physicians' or dentists' total procedure fee, credentials, experience, location, practice specialty and success rate, among other personal criteria.
Your Face-To-Face Consultation
After you select one or more doctors from the reverse auction results, you may have free, face-to-face consultations with each one. At that time, you and the doctor can establish a relationship, complete a preoperative or pretreatment patient evaluation, and review the doctor's total procedure fee.
During or after the face-to-face consultation, you may either agree to proceed or decline to proceed, for any reason whatsoever and without obligation to the physician or dentist.
How do Surgeons and Dentists Price Their Bids?
Physicians and dentists specializing in cosmetic procedures and physicians specializing in LASIK procedures make every effort to offer a global or integrated fee structure. In Bid For Surgery's reverse auction, the bids are called a "total procedure fee." This means that the total procedure fee will include the doctors' professional fees, any professional fees of other healthcare providers (for example, for an anesthesiologist), any facility fees and any diagnostic test and exam fees associated with the procedure. Bid for Surgery's goal is to present one all-inclusive price to the patient.
NOTE: Bid For Surgery is a serious process. Please do not exploit this new and unique process by using it for recreational or entertainment reasons.
