Medical visits: Payment for all non-medically necessary services, self-pay medical services, and insurance co-payment, is due at the time of your visit. We accept American Express, Visa, Master Card, Personal Checks, Cash, and Care Credit. Refined Gift Cards are also available.
We are in network with most PPO insurance plans, as well as, Medicare and Covered California’s Health Net and Blue Shield Exchange plans. It is ultimately the patient’s responsibility to know if they are seeing an in-network provider. We will bill your medical visits to your insurance carrier on your behalf. However, this does not guarantee payment by your insurance carrier. Patients are responsible for all unmet deductibles, applicable co-payments, and coinsurances. If we are not in network with your insurance, and you still choose to see one of our providers, you will be responsible for all office fees at the time of your visit. Any and all outstanding patient balances are due upon receipt or next visit.
Covered California: We are in Network with Covered California Blue Shield and Covered California Health Net
We are NOT in Network with Covered California Blue Cross or any other than the two listed above
The insurance card reads: Covered California or Pathway on it
When in doubt – please call the number on your insurance card and inquire.
Cosmetic visits: Payment is due for all cosmetic procedure fees at the time of your visit. This includes procedures deemed cosmetic by the provider, including but not limited to, removal of skin tags, removal of benign moles, and removal of keratosis or seborrheic keratosis. All laser procedures are considered cosmetic unless the provider specifies otherwise. If you subsequently bill your insurance for a cosmetic procedure and your insurance erroneously covers the procedure, you are not entitled to reimbursement by our office and we are obligated to notify your insurance carrier of their error.
