We collect payment at the time of service (co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance and non -covered services). We collect based upon the information from your insurance company. Sometimes the information given is incorrect. Patient final responsibility will be determined after your insurance has processed your claim.
If your coverage requires a referral and you or your insurer do not provide one at the time of your visit, we must collect the full amount of your charges at the time of services.
Referrals are ultimately the patient's responsibility. Please call ahead to obtain your referral in advance to avoid delays or having to reschedule your appointment. The patient is responsible for making sure we have obtained a referral from the primary care physician. We do not call primary care offices on behalf of the patient.
Most insurance companies including Medicare will only cover procedures that are considered "medically necessary." Skin tags, benign moles, and seborrheic keratoses are generally not covered by insurance. These elective services would be considered Fee for Service and payable at the time of service.
