Information for Cosmetic Services
Billing & Insurance
It is your responsibility to know and understand your insurance plan’s policies. There are a number of different insurance plans and each one has its own unique reimbursement policies. It is your responsibility to notify us of any special requirements within your plan. We accept most insurance plans and will file all claims, including secondary insurance, to the plans with which we participate.
All co-payments and deductibles are collected at the time of service. If you have not met your deductible, we require that you pay a percentage of the contracted fee amount at the time of service. You will receive a bill for the remaining balance. It is important to understand that most insurance companies consider all procedures (i.e. freezing warts, biopsies, etc.) applicable to your surgery deductible (if you have one). If your insurance company denies your bill, you will be held financially responsible. If you have no insurance or if you are having a cosmetic procedure done, the fees will be collected in full at the time of service. If your insurance changes, it is your responsibility to notify our office at least 24- hours before your appointment to make sure we are a provider. Failure to do so may result in needing to reschedule your appointment and a $35 cancellation fee.
You may receive a separate bill for any laboratory tests or pathology services that Dr. Stewart or Dr. Gioe may order.
We accept the following forms of payment: Personal Check, Cash, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.
Returned Check Fee/Collections
There will be a $35.00 charge for all returned checks. If it is necessary to collect unpaid fees for services rendered, you will be responsible for the charges assessed by the collection service, legal counsel, or court.
At all initial visits, minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Thereafter, if a minor is attending an appointment without a parent, payment is still expected at the time of service. Please provide written consent for all unattended minors – Parental Permission Form for Minors
Our physicians and staff strive to be on time. In order to help our office run smoothly, we ask that you do the following: If you are running more than 15 minutes late, please call to let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, we kindly request that you give our office 24-hour notice.
If we do not receive 24-hour notice, there will be a cancellation fee billed to the patient or responsible party. This fee will be waived with the first occurrence. Thereafter, the cancellation fees are as follows: $35 for a regular appointment and $75 for all surgery, filler, Botox, or laser appointments.
Please note: Patients who continually miss their appointments without giving proper notice to our office staff will be discharged from the practice after the third violation.
