Dermatology Associates of Morris is a specialty practice. Your insurance company determines the customary and reasonable fee for services provided. Patient balances may be due to charges applied to your deductible, a co-insurance (cost sharing percentage), your copayment, any fee that is considered cosmetic and not medically necessary, or balances determined to be patient responsibility by your insurance company. It is our policy to collect your copayment, fees for procedures that are considered cosmetic, and past due balances at the time of service. Copayments and fees for services can be paid by cash, check or credit cards.
The patient will receive a statement in the mail for all outstanding balances. Any outstanding balance is due within 30 days of billing. If the payment has not been received, your account may be referred to our collection agency and a collection fee of 331/3% will be added to the unpaid balance upon placing your account in collections.
For injectable cosmetic services, we require these be paid in full at the time of service by credit card or cash only.
Any skin tissue removed during your appointment will be sent to a pathology lab. You will receive a separate bill from the lab. You are to contact the lab with any questions regarding the lab bill.
If you need to cancel or change an appointment, we ask that you contact our office at least 24 hours prior. Patients who do not show for their scheduled appointment will be charged a $25.00 fee for a regular appointment and $50.00 fee for a missed surgical or patch testing appointment.
