Participating Insurance Companies
We participate with a limited number of commercial insurance providers and Medicare for dermatology care with Dr. Thomas Adrian. For patients of participating insurance plans and medicare, we will submit a claim on your behalf for all services rendered during the visit, and patients are responsible for prompt payment of their copay and/or deductible, as determined by their insurance.
Current Participating Insurance Plans
- Carefirst Blue Cross Blue Shield (All BC/BS HMO/PPO)
- Great West
- Health Net Federal Services
- United Healthcare (excludes Medicare Advantage)
For patients with non-participating insurance we offer very reasonable private patient rates (see below). In many cases, with high-deductible plans, these rates are less than what a patient would be responsible for if they were to visit a dermatologist who participates with their insurance. Private patients are provided with itemized bills and forms required to submit a claim to their insurance provider as an out-of-network visit.
Private Patient Initial Visit: $125
Private Patient Follow-up Visit: $85
Private Patient visits include non-surgical destruction of up to 5 benign lesions (eg. skin tags, sebhorreic keratoses).
Cosmetic Procedure Payment Policies
In general, insurance companies will not cover any product, procedure, or visit considered ‘cosmetic’ in nature. While this may seem unfair, we have no control over what an insurance company may consider cosmetic in nature. Procedures which are universally considered cosmetic include Botox, Wrinkle Fillers, Laser Hair Removal, and Laser Tattoo Removal, as well as Laser Wrinkle Reduction and Laser Treatment of Age Spots. All cosmetic treatments are considered fee for service and payment is due at the time of service. If you would like to submit an insurance claim for a certain procedure after your treatment we can provide you with the appropriate forms to do so, however full payment will be due at time of service. If you have any questions about whether a procedure may be covered by your insurance, please call our office to speak with an insurance and billing specialist.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) for Cosmetic Procedures
In many cases a patient may be able to use a flexible spending account for procedures not covered by their primary health insurance carrier. Please call your FSA provider or speak to a billing and insurance specialist in our office to determine if FSA payment for uncovered procedures is possible.
