Center Policies Relating to Insurance

Dear Patient,

Welcome to the High Tide Dermatology Center. We are dedicated to providing you with the absolute best level of care possible. There are, however, certain restrictions imposed by your insurance carrier on services provided to you. Please be aware of the following information regarding specific procedures.

Skin Tag Removal

Skin tag removal and seborrheic keratosis removal are both considered cosmetic procedures. The majority of insurance carriers do not cover cosmetic procedures, therefore payment for this service is expected to be paid in full at the time service is rendered. We will be happy to provide you with a billing statement, should you wish to submit that to your insurance carrier with a request for reimbursement.

Multiple Procedure Policy

Most insurance carriers do not provide full coverage for or allow multiple procedures to be performed on a patient on the same day. In order to remain compliant with insurance guidelines, High Tide Dermatology Center will limit the number of procedures performed on one day to those that are fully covered. By adhering to these guidelines, you will have fewer difficulties with insurance coverage.

Cosmetic Procedure Policy

We are pleased to offer a wide range of cutting-edge cosmetic services for the benefit of our patients. These include BOTOX, Restylane/Voluma/Juvederm, acne treatments and Sclerotherapy. These services however are NOT covered by insurance. As such, payment for them is expected at the time service is rendered.

Insurance Referral Policy

If your insurance carrier requires a referral from your Primary Care Physician (PCP), you are required to bring with you a valid referral form that has been signed by your primary care physician – faxed referrals are not accepted. Your co-pay amount is what is listed for a specialist provider, and payment is expected at the time of service.

If you do not supply a valid referral that specifies all services authorized by your primary care physician, then you will be required to reschedule your appointment. In addition, for all appointments, you will be asked to reschedule if you are unable to present a valid insurance card.
