Billing and Insurance
Please discuss your coverage with us in advance. If we are a provider with your insurance company, we will handle your claim according to our agreement with them. Some plans specify co-payment which is required at the time of service. You are responsible for any amount not covered by your plan. Most cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance, and require payment in full.
Fees and Financing
For Medical Related Conditions
If your insurance has a contract with Stanford, then for general dermatologic surgery needs such as skin cancer examinations and treatment, your insurance should cover the contracted amount. Depending on your insurance, you may or may not have a co-pay at the time of service.
For Cosmetic Conditions
For the initial cosmetic consultation, the charge is $50. For individual procedures that are greater than $500 per treatment then the cosmetic consultation fee is deducted from the procedure fee. Cosmetic procedure fees depend on the type of procedure. On some of our laser services such as for hair removal and photo rejuvenation, we offer packages.
For procedures such as liposuction, blepharoplasty, minilifts, etc there is a preoperative visit. At that visit, a 25% deposit is required. We require the balance at time of surgery.
In addition to cash, checks and credit cards, we are proud to announce a 0% financing plan for procedures costing $1000 or greater. If you are interested, you must fill out an application form prior to the procedure. If you qualify, then half the amount of the fee is required at time of surgery, and the balance is paid over a six month period at 0% interest.
