Our practice is contracted as a provider for many major health insurance carriers, it is the patient’s responsibility to know what insurance company currently provides his or her coverage and the details of that coverage – including which treatments and procedures are covered within that plan. Employers often change plans annually, so we will ask to see your insurance card/photo I.D. at each visit. This step helps to ensure that our records are accurate and your claim may be filed and paid with as little inconvenience to you as possible.
We accept all types of health insurance in or out of network with no referral necessary unless it is required by your insurance company. We accept Medicare and Medicaid. We also accept patients without medical insurance (see Self-Pay information below).
Please, have the following Subscriber or Insured’s information available when you schedule your appointment AND when you check in for your appointment:
- Date of Birth
- Photo ID# or Social Security Number
- Policy Information – Medical Card
- Parental/Guardianship papers
Payment is expected at the time services are rendered for medical and cosmetic services and products. For your convenience, we accept many insurance plans and offer an array of other payment options, including cash and check, some major credit cards, and CareCredit®.
Most treatments for skin diseases are covered by insurance to some degree. However, many cosmetic procedures are not covered under many medical healthcare plans. And, to make it more complex, a procedure that is categorized as medial dermatology and covered under one plan, may be considered cosmetic dermatology and not covered under another, even though it is actually the same service being provided. Please refer to your individual plan for such coverage details.
“New” self-pay patients are responsible for a $100 fee prior to your initial visit. “Established” self-pay patients are responsible for a $50 fee prior to your return visit. This fee will be applied to your final bill. You will receive a final bill indicating this prepayment and are responsible for remaining balance for the visit within 30 days of receipt.
We accept Mastercard, VISA and Discover credit cards.
(we do not accept American Express).
