Office Policies

To avoid any confusion or misunderstandings, following is an outline of our financial responsibility and cancellation policies. If you have any questions about any of these policies, please call the office at 212-421-SKIN (7546). 

Financial Responsibility Policy

Payment is expected at the time of your visit.  For patients with health insurance, please realize that medical insurance is to assist you with your medical expenses, it is not all-inclusive and patients usually have some sort of out-of-pocket responsibility.  Insurance plans are constantly changing, and although we do our best to inform you of “non-covered services”, we cannot know everything about every insurance coverage, co-pay, deductible, co-insurance, etc.  Increasingly, health insurance may have out-of-pocket co-insurances even for in-network, covered procedures.  Please call your insurance representative or employer’s HR person to better understand your policy regarding which charges are covered, and which are not, as well as any co-payments and deductibles that may apply.  As a courtesy to our patients, we accept and file claims for numerous insurance plans, but you are ultimately responsible for all fees and charges that your insurance company does not cover.  Because of the growing trend of increasing out-of pocket expenses, patients may be asked to keep a credit card on file.  Cosmetic services are not covered by health insurance, payment is expected at the time of your procedure.

We do appreciate the high cost of healthcare and make an effort to minimize your expenses by providing medication samples and coupons when available; prescribing generic medications when requested; and using in-network laboratories.

Most patients don't realize that limiting your resources to your insurance company’s coverage and guidelines may mean restrictions of care such as limited medication formularies, a limited number of procedures per visit, or a minimum waiting period between visits.

Cancellation Policy

We value your time and do our best to remain on schedule.  If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call at least the day before so that we can accommodate another patient.  Otherwise, we may impose a $150 missed appointment fee.
