Billing & Insurance Policy
Billing & Insurance Policy
Our charges are standard fees relating to the type of procedure or examination performed. Our office participates with several insurance plans. We will bill these insurances directly. You will be responsible for any services that are not covered by your plan and also any amounts that are applied to your deductible or coinsurance.
If our office does not have a contract with your insurance company, as a courtesy we will submit your bill to your insurance company if you provide us with the necessary information to do so. However, the responsibility for the payment rests with you, regardless of your insurance coverage or status of your insurance claim. Payment in full is expected at the time of the service, unless other arrangements are made in advance.
Dermatology Associates accepts cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and Care Credit. Payments can also be made via the Medent Patient Portal or through the ‘Pay My Bill Online’ link on this website. Contact our billing department at 717-741-4666, option 5 for billing, with any questions or concerns.
