Please confirm our doctors are on your particular insurance plan by their website or call the telephone number on the back of your insurance card.

If your insurance company or Medicare will only cover procedures that are medically necessary. In most cases, skin tags, benign moles and seborrheic keratoses are generally not covered by your carrier. If you want these growths removed, our dermatologists will be happy to do so on a fee-for-service basis.

In some cases, we are unable to verify insurance prior to your appointment and prior to your check-out or your insurance carrier will not provide us with information on the amount of deductibles that you have met. In these incidences, we must collect the full amount of the deductible at the time of service. In the event your insurance carrier pays us for these services, our mean time to refund such amounts is 30 days from the date we receive notification from your insurance.
