HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS
Our providers participate in several insurance plans, as listed below. To confirm that we accept your plan, please call our office at 212-619-0666 as your insurance carrier's list of participating providers may be out of date. Participation means that our office submits claims for each visit to your insurance carrier(s), and payment is calculated and provided by the insurance carrier. Patients are responsible for providing accurate personal and insurance information, photo identification, a valid insurance card, and all necessary referrals if required. Co-payments are collected at the time of service.
If your insurance plan requires a referral, please bring the referral with you to your appointment. Please call the office to determine how the referral should be made out. Patients whose plans requires a referral, and who come to their appointment without a valid or properly executed referral, will be offered the choice of rescheduling their appointment and paying a $50 no-referral fee, or signing an insurance waiver and being seen as scheduled.
A partial list of insurance plans we participate with include:
GHI (PPO only), Blue Cross / Blue Shield, United HealthCare, Oxford, Aetna, Cigna, 1199, Medicare, Magnacare, HIP, Multiplan, PHCS, The Empire Plan and Beech Street.
If your insurance plan determines that any portion of our charges are cosmetic, not covered services, are applied to your annual deductible, or otherwise are your responsibility to pay for, we will issue you an invoice. Prompt payment is appreciated. Services known to be cosmetic will not be submitted to your insurance carrier, and payment is due at the time of service.
We hope this information clarifies our office policies and procedures. We are always eager to discuss any issues that may arise in the course of our patients' care. Our goal is to provide personalized, top-notch dermatologic care, further the important provider-patient relationship, and enhance each patient's experience in our office.
