Thank you for choosing Dermatology & Skin Health for your skin care needs. It is our goal to provide you with a positive experience. Over the past few years, the practice of medicine has become more complicated for physicians and patients alike.
Your insurance company may deem certain procedures as not medically necessary, or cosmetic. If you and your doctor decide to continue with a procedure that falls into this category, we require payment in full at the time of service. The following are some examples:
Many times it may be necessary to obtain a tissue sample (biopsy) or perform lab tests to confirm a diagnosis or determine a course of treatment. If a biopsy or other lab work is done, there is a separate fee for processing and interpretation of the biopsy and/or lab work. This means that you will receive a separate bill from another doctor or laboratory for these tests. We will attempt to use a lab which files directly with your insurance carrier. Although the lab will file with your insurance, you are responsible for any bill you may receive from the laboratory or pathology services used. If you receive a bill from the lab, please contact the lab directly to resolve any billing concerns.
For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard, Discover, Visa and CareCredit.

A copayment is a dollar amount set by your insurance company which you are responsible for at each visit. All claims are subject to a deductible if a procedure is performed (i.e. biopsy, cryosurgery, excisions, etc.). A deductible is the amount you are obligated to pay before your insurance company starts paying for your healthcare costs. Some insurance plans may also have a coinsurance, in which you may be responsible for a percentage of healthcare costs in addition to your copay or deductible. It is your responsibility to understand your plan and any associated deductible or coinsurance. Payment will be due at time of service if your deductible has not been met or if your plan requires a coinsurance payment. You may be billed for this amount should your insurance company notify us that additional payment is due from you.
We will send you three statements regarding your balance. The second statement is considered past due. If you should receive a third statement noted “Final”, the account balance will be turned over to a collection agency if not paid within 10 days.
