Paying for Mohs Surgery

We accept most health care plans and Medicare. (See Accepted Health Plans.) In some cases, your insurance plan will reimburse us directly. If not, we will provide you with the necessary information for reimbursement. Please check your insurance plan for specific coverage and reimbursement policies.

You may be responsible for a deductible and/or co-payment. Co-payments are collected at the time of your office visit and on the day of surgery, as required by your health plan.

We will need to make a copy of your insurance card. Please bring it with you to all your visits. If your insurance coverage changes during the time our staff is caring for you, please inform us. If you do not have insurance, please discuss financial arrangements with our staff.

Pre-Authorization for Mohs Surgery

Many health insurance plans require pre-authorization by your primary physician before your office consultation and Mohs surgery, even if your dermatologist or surgeon has recommended that you see one of our physicians.

If pre-authorization is not obtained, we will be unable to bill your insurance. Often you will be responsible for talking to your physician, as we are not permitted to do so. We will assist you as much as possible.
