All funds are nonrefundable and only subject to 1 credit for a future vacation date. Vacation must be fulfilled within 6 months of initial deposit or deposit is lost. All other account funds can be held for future vacation date within 1 year of initial deposit. After 1 year of initial deposit, all funds and your vacation is forfeited for no show. To receive a new vacation date, you must submit another application and deposit along with purchasing a new vacation to reflect current prices.

This does not supersede the cancellation policy for non medical clearance or personal cancellations. There is a zero refund for clients who do not meet health standards for a medical clearance. Example of these standards are, Hemoglobin of 13 and above | BMI 35 and below | Not Pregnant |and overall good health with signed internal clearance form, from Primary Care Physician (PCP). Each client will agree to meeting the above health standards and being medically cleared by their PCP within 30 days before initial registration. If not, your vacation will be cancelled due to a breach in agreement that was signed during the registration process, that stated you were already cleared for surgery and met the above health standards.

Any suspicious or fraudulent medical forms submitted, can/will be reported to local State Authorities and also result in vacation forfeiture.

 All selected procedures are simply a "wish list" of procedures that you desire until we have confirmed with surgeon the approval of your request once the surgeon has examined your consult form, photos, and listed health concern(s). This a preliminary approval from surgeon. Final approval happens during vacation at a face-to-face surgeon consultation. If additional labs or services rendered, there will be an additional cost paid directly to surgeon and/or clinic. You are still required to get clearance for all medical procedures from your PCP and/or your personal medical specialist(s). You must also submit the final internal clearance form before 40 days of vacation start date. A Surgical Sisters Coordinator will contact you within 5 business days if there are any issues with "wish pics"  to review. There is no refund on procedures that a surgeon doesn't see medically fit to perform while you are in surgery or during the face-to-face consult. There will be a credit reserved for the following procedure that must be used within 6 months of surgery date.
