Insurance & Billing
We accept most traditional insurance plans. Please contact our office to verify acceptance of your plan. Qualifications for insurance coverage may differ due to the uniqueness of each procedure. Because there are so many plan options, it is up the patient to understand the nuances of their own insurance plan.
New Patients are required to bring their insurance card with them to their initial office visit. Should you not have your insurance card, a letter from your insurance company or temporary card will be accepted. We are unable to accept only an ID# without something verified by the insurance company. Patients without verified insurance information will have the option to reschedule their appointment or pay at the time of service and may submit their insurance claim themselves for reimbursement.
It is the patient’s responsibility to know if a referral is required by their insurance company to see a specialist. Should your Primary Care Physician wish to fax a referral, please contact our office the day prior to your appointment to be certain it has arrived. Unfortunately, we are unable to see you at your appointment time if the referral is not physically in the office at the time of your visit.
Patients under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian with them at the time of their first visit. Follow up visits do not require a guardian to be present unless a procedure or treatment will be performed that requires additional written authorizations to be signed. Grandparents, siblings, babysitters etc. are not considered legal guardians unless there is court mandated paperwork to accompany the child’s visit. Parental permission slips are not sufficient for Ligresti Dermatology to examine and treat a minor.
Co-payments, Cosmetic Payments, Self-Pay and Balances
Co-payments, Cosmetic Treatments and those patients without insurance care considered time of service payments and must be paid the day the service occurs. We accept checks, cash or credit cards. Patient balances which occur after the insurance has processed medical claims are sent out to patients on a monthly basis. Patients wishing to enter a payment plan for their balance may do so by speaking with our Billing Office. Payment plans are arranged by our office for a specific period of time and generally require a credit card to be kept on file with our office where charges will be run at intervals which are decided upon during the conversation with our billing office.
