Accepted Insurance


We accept most major insurance plans. We are an in-network provider with the following insurance companies:

 

Aetna/Coventry
Blue Cross Blue Shield
CIGNA (excluding Cigna Connect)
Essence Healthcare
Humana
Healthlink
Medicare
Multiplan
United HealthCare

As a new practice we are consistently increasing our participation in various insurance plans on a weekly basis. Please be sure to ask us about your particular insurance plan.

If we are not a participating provider with your health insurance plan at this time or you do not have health insurance coverage, we will be happy to provide care for you as a self-pay patient. We offer discounted fees for medical services that we provide to self-pay patients. Please call for our self-pay rates. You are responsible for all charges at the time of service. As a courtesy for our out-of-network patients who do have insurance, we will submit a claim on your behalf to your insurance company. Your insurance company will reimburse you directly.

Financial Policy

PAYMENT AT TIME OF SERVICE: Payment is due in full at the time of service unless you are covered by Medicare or an insurance company with which we participate. You will be charged a $25 service fee for any returned checks. 

INSURANCE: Patients will be asked to present their insurance card to the receptionist for copying upon check-in at the office each time they are seen for medical services. Please make it a point to bring your insurance card with you each time that you visit our office. Claims not paid within 45 days by your insurance company will become your responsibility. You will receive a statement for these services and you will need to contact your insurance company for reimbursement.

For those patients covered by insurance plans with which we are participating providers, all co-payments, deductibles and noncovered services are due at time of service. We will file the insurance claim to the insurance company. In the event that your insurance coverage changes to a plan with which we are not participating providers, we will require payment in full at the time of service and we will file your claim to the insurance company as a courtesy. Any charges that are not paid by your insurance company are your responsibility. Please let us know in advance if your insurance company requires any pre-certifications of procedures or testing. These are your responsibilities as the patient.

Please note, if payment is not received from either you or your insurance company within 60 days from the date of service(s), your account will be considered delinquent and subject to referral to an outside collection agency.

No show policy

Each time a patient misses an appointment without providing proper notice, another patient is prevented from receiving timely care. Therefore, patients who do not show up for their appointment without a call to cancel at least 24 hours before the appointment time OR are more than 15 minutes late will be considered as “no show.”

St. Louis Dermatology Center will charge a fee of $35.00 for all missed appointments OR late appointments ("no shows"). 

"No Show" fees will be billed to the patient. This fee is not covered by insurance.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we strive to best serve the needs of all our patients.
