Insurance Information
Our physicians and ADS Ambulatory Surgery Center are in-network with most insurance companies and do accept Medicare assignment. Our office staff will make every effort to notify you if we are not contracted with your particular insurance plan, but remember that it is your responsibility to understand your own insurance requirements and benefits. Once we have received your insurance information, we will contact your carrier regarding your benefits, and we will then provide you with a summary of what portion of the charges you may be responsible for. However, due to the uncertainty of how involved your surgery will be and what type of repair you will require, it is difficult to provide a pinpoint estimate. We can usually give a reasonable range of what your responsibility might be.

Under certain insurance plans, we are required to collect copays and deductibles when you check in on the day of your surgery. In these cases, we will notify you in advance of the amount we expect to collect at check-in.

Our office will be happy to file your claims with your insurance for you. Once the claims have been processed by your insurance company, we will send out a statement to collect any remaining balance that the insurance indicates is patient responsibility. Please note: as described under the ADS Ambulatory Surgery Center tab – when reconstruction is needed, a portion of your surgery will be billed on 2 claims from Advanced Dermatologic Surgery and the other portion on 1 claim from ADS Ambulatory Surgery Center. These are 2 separate entities and we are required to bill them separately. You will receive statements from both if you have a balance.

If you are unable to make payment at the time of service or upon receiving your statement(s), we do work with an outside agency, CareCredit, who allows you to set up a payment plan. These plans are available at no extra charge to you and are interest free. There is no extra expense incurred by you to set up one of these payment plans. If you ask our office staff, we will be happy to give you more information about CareCredit, or you may go online to www.carecredit.com for more information.
