Insurance & Billing
We ask that your review our Financial Policy below that includes more information on your financial obligations when services are rendered to you at Dermatology Specialists. We look forward to caring for you! If at any time you have questions regarding your bill, please call our business office at 952-303-8600 and we will be happy to assist you.
Dermatology Specialists accepts and is contracted with most carriers, PPO and HMOs. Charges for the services billed to our contracted insurance carriers will be discounted to their allowed amounts. Dermatology Specialists does not accept Worker’s Compensation Insurance.
You are responsible for any copay, deductibles and non-covered services.
Please bring your current medical insurance card to every visit and notify us if there is a change in your insurance coverage.
Contact your insurance company prior to your visit to clarify your covered benefits for your dermatologic services.
If your insurance requires a referral, you must obtain one prior to your visit.
Co-payments are due, without exception, at the time of check-in along with any past due amounts on your account. If you are unsure of your copay, deductible, or coinsurance amount, please contact your insurance company for clarification prior to your appointment. Under no circumstances are we able to waive co-payments.
You will be asked to sign an Authorization and Release of Information form which allows us to bill and receive payment from your insurance company.
Independent contracted services
There may be times where additional diagnostic testing needs to be done at another pathology lab to support the diagnosis; therefore you will receive an additional bill for these services if applicable.
Dermatology Specialists accepts payment plan options. Please call our business office at 952-303-8600 for more information.
Any checks returned for insufficient funds will incur a $20.00 fee that is not billable to insurance.
Parents/guardians accompanying a minor for treatment are responsible for the bill.
If you have any questions regarding insurance or billing, please call our business office at 952-303-8600.
