SCN Dermatology Group will file claims directly with the patient’s insurance carrier for services where covered benefits have been verified. Insurance verification does not guarantee the patient’s insurance will pay for services. It is the patient’s responsibility to know if our physicians are considered “in-network” by the patient’s insurance. Payment is due within 30 days of receipt of a statement sent from our office.
Authorizations/referrals are an arrangement between patients and their insurance carrier. Authorizations/referrals are required prior to treatment. It is the patient’s responsibility to bring a copy of their authorization/referral from their primary care doctor to our office. If a patient does not bring their authorization/referral with them, then their appointment will be cancelled and the patient will have to reschedule or be seen as a self-pay patient.
