Payment Policy

Payment Policymedical check out

Payment of all co-pays is due at check-in before your appointment. As a service to you, our office will bill your insurance company. Most insurance companies require that we collect these fees, as they are terms of your health care contract. Additionally, patients are ultimately responsible for all balances. Due to the constant changes in health insurance, it is your responsibility to know your health coverage. If you should have any questions regarding if a certain procedure is covered, it is to your advantage to call your insurance company and find out exactly what your contract covers. Their customer service representatives will be happy to assist you. Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality dermatological care possible. With this in mind, we are constantly trying to control our costs while conforming to the standard fee schedules approved by most major insurance companies. Our receptionist will need to verify your insurance coverage prior to your visit.

  1. Your medical insurance card and personal identification must be presented to the receptionist at each visit.
  2. Any outstanding balances should be paid before your office visit or procedure, unless prior payment arrangements have been made.
  3. Your insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company. While we accept the reimbursement rates of many insurance companies, we are not a party to your contract and therefore do not determine which medically necessary services they cover and which they do not.
  4. Our relationship and treatment responsibility is with/to you. We will attempt to notify you whenever we know a test or service is not covered. There will, however, be times when we cannot determine this. Whether covered or not, you are ultimately responsible for payment of the services received.
  5. We require payment in full on the date of service for co-pay and offices charges defined under your policy as your responsibility.
  6. $15 administrative fee for delayed payment will be added to your balance if you choose not to pay at the time services are rendered. This $15 fee is not billable to your insurance company; it is your responsibility. To avoid this fee, you must pay at the time of service.
  7. We expect you to call us if you are not able to make it your appointment. For your convenience, we may make an attempt to remind you of your appointment. Your appointment is a reservation of the offices, staffs’ and doctors’ time and resources.  A charge of $45 for office visits will be made for appointments that are not cancelled within 24 hours in advance — and $100 to $150 for any 30-minute or longer surgical or cosmetic appointment.

We realize that, on occasion, temporary financial problems may affect timely payment of your account. If such problems arise, we encourage you to contact us promptly for assistance.

Pay Bill Online

We accept most insurances for patients seen in our office for medically related dermatology issues. Patients with HMO insurance are expected to contact their primary care provider for a referral in advance of your visit with us. Patients who arrive without a valid referral may be rescheduled.

For out-of-pocket expenses, we accept cash, personal checks, debit cards and a variety of credit cards, including VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.  We also accept preapproved CareCredit payments for cosmetic procedures.

For your convenience, we are also able to securely accept payment online. If you would like to pay your bill online or you would like to prepay for your cosmetic consultation fee online, please click the Pay Now button below.
