Medicare Policies

Prospective patients with Medicare are encouraged to read this entire information section.

 

We accept Medicare. If you want to ensure we accept your combination of health plans, you can email a photo of your insurance cards (front and back) to info@clinicdermatology.com. We are unable to offer benefits guidance over the phone unless we can see a photo of your insurance card. 

People with older skin have unique skin and specific health care needs. At Clinic Dermatology, we are a registered provider for Medicare beneficiaries. We are well-prepared to deal with the unique dermatology challenges faced by our seniors. 

We are in-network with a couple Medicare Advantage plans (including United and AARP). We have a limited number of scheduling slots for Medicare beneficiaries.

 

Please note that Medicare compliance is very complicated, and often does not fit with the consumer expectations of today's seniors. All Medicare appointments are handled by our Medicare coordinator. Please plan to call us, provide the front desk with your demographic information, and our Medicare coordinator will call you back within 3 business days. All Medicare beneficiaries must notify us within 7 days of any change in their Medicare plan. Please note that you must inform the front desk the nature of your medical needs, should they be a full head-to-toe skin exam or a problem-focused appointment. Note that the first appointment is for exam-only with no extra procedures under any circumstances.
