Statement of Financial Responsibility and Agreement to Pay


Thank you for choosing SkinMD as your health care provider. We are committed to providing the highest quality of patient care. We have prepared this Statement of Financial Responsibility for your information. Please read and sign this form, prior to receiving treatment.

 

Agreement to Pay

 

I acknowledge and agree that I am responsible for and will pay for all regular charges for items, services and treatments provided to me by SkinMD, including any amount not paid by my insurance plan.  I understand that I can request additional information about charges or may obtain an estimate prior to or after signing this agreement.

 

I understand that some items or services that SkinMD may provide to me may not be covered by my insurance carrier, and I agree to be personally responsible for any such non-covered items or services more than the limits in my member benefit agreement.

 

I understand that I am personally responsible for any non-covered items or services that are listed on the financial responsibility for non-covered items or services form.  I understand that I am personally responsible for deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance established by my member benefit agreement.

 

I hereby agree that if SkinMD has agreed to bill my insurance or other third-party carrier, it has agreed to do so as a courtesy, and that SkinMD has the right, should SkinMD deem it advisable, to demand payment from me at any time prior to full payment from any insurance or third-party carrier, unless SkinMD and my insurance company or third-party carrier have agreed that I will not be billed.

 

I understand and agree that I have been advised that I may be billed by SkinMD and that this Assignment of Benefits and Agreement to Pay applies to all Skin MD services.  If my account becomes delinquent and is referred for collection, I agree to pay the reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs and /or collection agency fees associated with the collection process. 

 

***Insurance*** As of May 16, 2019, SkinMD will no longer accept commercial insurance and will be a direct-pay only provider. We will continue to accept Government-Issued Insurance (Medicare/Tricare). We will require payment for our services prior to your appointment: New Patients: $125 and Returning Patients: $75. At the conclusion of your appointment, any remaining balance will need to be paid in-full. We will provide you with a completed HCFA form with all the necessary information for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement at their rates. If you HAVE met your deductible, your insurance company will reimburse you at their rate. If you HAVE NOT met your deducible, your payment will be applied toward your deductible.

  • If my personal check is returned due to insufficient funds, I agree to pay the $35.00 NSF fee charged by SkinMD.
  • If I miss an appointment or fail to cancel an appointment 24 hour prior to the appointment time, I understand a fee of $50.00 will be added to my account for a medical appointment and $100 for cosmetic services missed or last-minute cancellations. 
  • All paperwork that will need to be filled out by the physician for the patient, will be billed at $25 for the1st page and $10 every additional page. We will require payment in full prior for these services.
  • A $15 service fee will be charged for prescription refills for replacement of lost prescriptions or for patients who have not been seen in the office in the past six months.
  • It is the patient’s responsibility to notify us of updated insurance at all visits.  As a provider, we will file your insurance as a courtesy (except for cosmetic services), however if your insurance does not respond within 45 days you will be billed the balance.
  • A $25.00 fee will be charged for all medical records requested from the patient for the 1st 25 pages and .25 for every additional page.

 

Assignment of Benefits

 

I hereby authorize and request all insurance carriers with whom I have coverage to pay directly to SkinMD any and all benefits due under the terms of my policy for items or services provided by SkinMD.  If my health insurance will not allow direct payment to SkinMD, I agree to immediately forward to SkinMD all health insurance payments I receive for my care at SkinMD.
