Pro Bono Policy and Application

At Dr. Barrett Plastic Surgery, PC (“BPS”), we are committed to offering our state-of-the-art plastic surgery services to a limited number of eligible patients in need who cannot afford the cost of a procedure we offer. The Barrett Gives Back program applies only to procedures we regularly perform that are provided at our facility in Beverly Hills. We do not cover the cost of travel or lodging in connection with a procedure. 

You may be eligible if:

  • You are a US citizen or permanent resident;
  • You are over the age of 13; 
  • You are without insurance coverage, Medicaid, Medicare, or any other government or other healthcare coverage for the procedure you seek;
  • Your income and monetary assets are such that you are unable to afford the procedure without financial assistance; and 
  • The procedure you seek is one that we regularly perform. 

We may ask for documentation supporting your application, which will remain confidential subject to our privacy policy (see below) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).  

The criterion for selecting Barrett Gives Back patients is completely within our sole and absolute discretion. We don’t guarantee that any prospective applicant, regardless of need or type of procedure, will get priority over any other prospective applicant we may select. However, eligibility for our Barrett Gives Back program is determined without regard to sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or educational background. 

If you are selected to be a Barrett Gives Back patient you hereby acknowledge and agree that, in consideration for the medical services and/or advice provided to you, you grant to BPS and its designee(s) a non-exclusive, irrevocable, sublicensable, perpetual, worldwide right and license to use, publish, distribute and exhibit your name, image, likeness, voice, and biography (“Your Personal Information”) by any and all means and media, whether now known or later devised, for marketing, promotional, advertising, informational and/or educational purposes, including without limitation on BPS’ websites, social media pages and channels and in BPS’ marketing, promotional and advertising materials.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, your Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) and your Protected Health Information (under HIPAA) shall not be used for marketing or promotional purposes in consideration for medical services and/or advice and your decision to allow us to use such private information in marketing or other materials shall be your own decision and shall not be a condition of your obtaining medical services and/or advice hereunder. Further, you hereby acknowledge and agree that neither BPS nor any of its designees has any obligation whatsoever to publicize Your Personal Information. 

You may submit your application on our website, located at https://www.drdanielbarrett.com/barrett-gives-back (“Our Website”). The review and acceptance process may take 30 days or longer from our receipt of your application.  

 

Privacy Policy

BPS owns and operates Our Website. This BPS Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how BPS collects information through Our Website. The BPS Privacy Policy explains why BPS collects this information, how it will be used or disclosed, and how a visitor may update or delete any identifiable information from our records. 

By accessing, browsing, and/or using Our Website, a visitor is deemed to have accepted the terms of the BPS Privacy Policy. Please do not access Our Website if you do not agree or are unwilling to accept the terms of the BPS Privacy Policy. 

The BPS Privacy Policy is inapplicable to BPS’ offline information collection, policy, or practices, which are subject to HIPAA Patient Rights and Privacy Policy.

BPS gathers information which can generally be categorized as either “Anonymous Information” or “Personally Identifiable Information.”

Anonymous information (occasionally referred to as “Aggregate Information”) is information which cannot be traced back to any specific individual. BPS uses this Anonymous Information to understand how visitors use Our Website and how to improve Our Website based on this Anonymous Information. BPS may collect the visitor’s domain name, referral data (the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to Our Website), the browser used to access Our Website (Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, etc.), and platform type (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.). In addition to the above, BPS will collect aggregate queries for internal reporting. BPS will count, track, and aggregate the visitor’s activity into our general traffic flow analysis to determine where traffic to Our Website comes from, how traffic flows within the BPS site, etc.)

“Personally Identifiable Information” is information provided by a visitor to Our Website that allows BPS to learn specific facts about you for the selection process. The Personally Identifiable Information provided could range from a visitor’s name, address, and zip code to specific health information provided to BPS on an admission form or otherwise. Your Personally Identifiable Information collected on Our Website will only be used to allow the processing of your application and to perform services. If a visitor completes an admission form downloaded from Our Website and submits the form to BPS, BPS uses the Personally Identifiable Information only for the purpose for which it was submitted to BPS. This may include BPS providing this information to third parties with whom BPS has a relationship with to facilitate the delivery of the information or services required. 

As part of this Privacy Policy, BPS expressly reserves the right to disclose any visitor information that is already publicly available or that is posted by you (or by others with your permission) to a chat room, forum, bulletin board, social media account, or any other public forum. BPS may also use the Personally Identifiable Information provided to send you information BPS believes may be of interest to you (such as newsletters or other items related to BPS and its medical community) based on information previously provided to us. You have the right to opt out of this information, described below in “Your Opt Out Right.” You can visit the BPS site without providing any Personally Identifiable Information but if you wish to obtain BPS services, certain personal information must be provided.
