Billing & Payments
Our knowledgeable staff will help you navigate the insurance and billing information associated with surgery.
We participate with most insurance plans. Please call your insurance company's member services department to verify physician participation, coverage, network benefits, and patient responsibilities such as; copays, co-insurance and deductibles. The member services number is usually located on the back of your insurance card.
Patients are responsible for obtaining all referrals required by their insurance policy.
For all patients scheduled for Mohs surgery, you will need to provide the member services department of your insurance company with additional information to ensure maximum benefit coverage. They will need to know that you are scheduled for Mohs Surgery (procedure code 17311) for skin cancer (diagnosis code C44.300).
There are a few plastic surgery procedures, such as breast reconstruction and breast reduction, that may be covered by your insurance company. Our billing specialists will work with you to understand your insurance options and any pre-authorization requirements. If your particular insurance plan does not cover a procedure, you will be responsible for payment. Our billing specialists can help you make financial arrangements, including providing information on financing through Care Credit®.
