Please check when making your appointment if we participate with your insurance.
Arriving at your scheduled appointment time is greatly appreciated. We cannot guarantee that you can be seen before or after your scheduled appointment. Please call the office prior to a scheduled appointment if a conflict arises. All appointments must be confirmed. We call twice in advance to confirm appointments. If we leave a message, please call the office back to confirm the time.
You must present your valid insurance card, photo ID and referral (if required by your insurance plan) at each visit. Patients are responsible to call in advance to obtain a referral from their primary care physician if required by their insurance company. This should be done prior to your scheduled appointment. If this is not done, payment for the visit is required at the time of visit, as well as a waiver signed, and once we receive the appropriate referral, a refund will be administered. You can also call the phone number on your insurance card to verify that your primary care physician has entered a referral in the system.
Some payments are due at the time of service. These payments could include:
- Co-payments, deductibles, balances, and co-insurances
- Fees for procedures that are not covered by insurance, including aesthetician services and skin care products
- Deposits for cosmetic/elective procedures
Co-payments are collected prior to service. You may also be responsible for any amount that is not covered because your insurance carrier denies the claim (not medically necessary or cosmetic in nature). All payments must be made at the time of service. For your convenience, the office accepts cash, checks*, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.
*There will be a $40.00 fee for any check returned for non-sufficient funds.
If we are a participating provider on your insurance plan, claims will be filed to the insurance company directly. In the event that your insurance company denies payment for any reason, patients or their guarantors are responsible for payment of all outstanding charges for services rendered.
If you are unable to make your appointment and neglect to notify us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be billed accordingly: $25 for office visits and $50 for surgery.
For all cosmetic appointments scheduled, there is a $100 deposit required to book your appointment. This deposit will be applied towards the treatment’s cost. You are required to give 48 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment or your deposit will be forfeited.
