Insurance plans vary significantly. Coverage and benefits will be specific to your state, your employer, and your specific insurance plan.

You need to have the following to verify coverage prior to making your appointment:

  • Current insurance card – make sure you have your current insurance card (from this year)
  • Active plan – make sure your current insurance plan is active and ask what skin care providers are in your network

We will verify eligibility and benefits:

  • Coverage will vary based on the type of service and provider.
  • If you have an HMO, we will need an active referral for dermatology services.

NOTE: We can verify eligibility and some of your benefits. For all benefit information, reach out to your insurance carrier. Ultimately, you, the patient, are responsible for understanding your insurance coverage and for ensuring your services are covered and/or paid.

When you schedule an appointment with Pinnacle Dermatology, we reserve that time to provide you with the highest quality of care. If you need to cancel an appointment, please contact our scheduling office at (833) 257-7546 at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Failure to provide 24-hour notice will result in a no-show charge and will be collected to the extent permitted by law or applicable payor contracts. Any patient who cancels an appointment without providing 24 hours’ notice will be charged a fee.

FEES: The no-show fee is $50 for a Monday-Friday regular medical visit, $100 for Saturday appointments and $250 for a surgery-related appointment. In addition, the no-show fee is $99 for a cosmetic consultation and $250 for a cosmetic procedure.

All fees must be paid in full prior to your next appointment. Patients with repeat cancellations or missed appointments may be discharged from our practice at our discretion.

At Pinnacle Dermatology, every member of our team strives to make your appointment as convenient and comfortable as possible. We are also dedicated to the highest quality skin care, and we approach your skin health holistically.

What else should you expect at your appointment? Below is a summary:

Check-in:
At check-in, we will welcome you and update any changes to your patient file. We will scan your ID and insurance card. We will also collect any applicable co-pays.

During your appointment:
A nurse or medical assistant will take your health history, and then you and our team will discuss the reason for the visit.

Appointment times vary, but most health histories and reviews of skin conditions take less than 15 minutes. During your visit with your provider, you will learn of various treatment options. If necessary, you and your provider will also discuss the uses and indications of any recommended medications or skin care routines.
