The problem :
In today’s world, practice that “takes insurance” simply means they bill your insurance and abide by their stifling regulations and rules. Most patients spend an average of 300-400 on a simple Dermatology visit and procedure based on their high deductible plans. In addition, these practices are overwhelmed with insurance regulations often providing short visits with mid-level providers. Therefore quality suffers, and the cost remains the same or much often higher. Insurance also limits “allowed” procedures performed the same day requiring numerous unnecessary followups for the patient as well as extremely high “allowed” fees for simple visits/procedures. Furthermore, third party clouds medica care by limiting access to certain medications, denying certain procedures, requiring unnecessary prior authorizations and so much more.With direct care, the bureaucracy, costs, and limitations placed by third party insurers is eliminated, creating transparency of cost and improved quality of care with the expert specialized physician.
A direct care model is simple. By eliminating the third-party middleman, the physician is allowed to provide true quality care to patients directly and spend the duration of their visit focused on their care, as opposed to unnecessary insurance paperwork. Direct practices operate much the same way as your favorite restaurant: you step in, order, and get your favorite food. No hidden fees, no surprise bills or denials and no variable costs due to high deductibles. Direct care models ultimately result in decreased overall costs to the patient by eliminating third-parties benefiting from the medical care.
No Membership Fee: There is no membership fee. However, we do offer a separate concierge model with direct 24-7 access to the Dermatologist for those interested in more intimate care.
