Please check with your insurance provider or our office to obtain specific coverage information. Please check with your insurance provider to determine the procedures you need to follow in order to have your dermatology treatment covered. For example, you may need a referral from a primary care physician to be treated by a specialist. If you do, please obtain the referral prior to your visit and bring the referral with you. You may not be covered for your treatment if you do not follow the procedures required by your insurance carrier. Insurance carriers do not cover most cosmetic services. You will be responsible for payment at the time of service for all non-covered services. Your insurance carrier may require that you use a specific lab, please make sure to let us know where your labs must be sent at the time of your visit. Payments and co-payments are due at the time of your visit.
