OFFICE POLICY AND PRICING
Our office will see everyone regardless of insurance coverage. We offer a simple, reasonable and transparent fee schedule listed below. Our goal is to offer superior patient care and streamline the office visit experience. We introduced a new scheduling system that is designed to reduce paperwork, and provide timely appointments for urgent skin issues. To achieve this, we provide all the necessary information for you to file your own insurance so as to receive reimbursement directly from your insurance company. By doing this, we are able to significantly decrease our prices. The majority of our patients find it is more cost effective to be seen in our office out-of-network compared to being seen by their in-network provider. The coverage for out-of-network office visits is less expensive than the in-network out of pocket costs.
With this new Direct Pay model, patients pay for their visit at the time of service. We have created the fee schedule to be affordable and reasonable. If you compare costs, you will find that it often less expensive to be seen in our office out-of-network than it is to be seen by an in-network provider. We will not require sign-up fees or membership fees. This makes our model different from a concierge practice which requires those fees. In fact, if you have a high deductible or high co-pay insurance plan, chances are that the new model will result in less out-of-pocket expenditure. Most private insurances have out-of-network benefits, so we will be able to provide you a statement of service that you can submit to your insurance plan for reimbursement. If you have Medicare, you cannot be reimbursed for any of our services.
If you have questions specific to you and your family, please call 913-469-1115 during regular business hours. We look forward to working with you in our new practice!
