We are dedicated to providing the best possible care and service to you at our dermatology practice in Dallas. Your complete understanding of your financial responsibilities is an essential element of your care and treatment. If you have any questions about the following financial policy, please do not hesitate in discussing them with us.
For additional questions, request a consultation online or call us at (214) 631-7546(214) 631-7546 to schedule your appointment. When you schedule a consultation for cosmetic procedures, you will also receive a customized "Total Skin Rejuvenation" plan to help you achieve your best complexion.
We make every effort to follow the guidelines required by your insurance company. However, every insurance contract is unique. If you do not inform us of any special requirements in your plan and we subsequently perform a service or test that is denied, we have no choice but to bill you directly for those charges. Every effort is made to file claims on your behalf with your insurance plan. Unfortunately, if we are unable to collect from your insurance company, you will be held financially responsible. Therefore, we encourage our patients to be pro-active in assuring that claims are paid.
If your insurance coverage changes, it is your responsibility to notify our office at least 24 hours before your next appointment. Failure to do so may result in rescheduling of your appointment. In addition, we may not be a provider with your new insurance. You will then be treated as a cash patient and given a superbill in order to file your own claim.
You may receive a separate bill from an off-site laboratory (AmeriPath®, Freeman-Cockerell, LabCorp etc) for any lab tests your physician may order. Please discuss any lab billing discrepancies with that laboratory.
With the exception of our Medicare patients, we DO NOT file secondary insurance.
