Note Regarding Insurance Plans:
After much soul-searching, Dr. Campbell has decided to decline contracting with commercial insurance carriers. This move toward a fee-for-service, cash only model will allow her to focus on patient care and not be burdened with the issues surrounding contracting with and billing insurance companies. Dr. Campbell hopes her and her staff can use their time and energy to provide high-quality, excellent care and service to their patients. We want to spend less time on administrative functions and obstacles created by third-party payers.
You may now be asking yourself, why then would I even see Dr. Campbell? As a patient, there are many benefits to being a patient at our fee-for-service dermatology practice:
Wait times will shorten dramatically. Oftentimes, same day appointments are likely to be available to you.
There are no mid-level providers at our practice. You will always see Dr. Campbell, a board-certified dermatologist who strives to provide the best possible care she can by staying up-to-date with changes in the field of dermatology.
Dr. Campbell will take the time to listen to your questions and concerns and do a complete, unhurried exam and provide a clear, well documented diagnosis and personalized treatment plan for you.
Our limited clinic staff will be focused on you and the health of your skin, instead of focusing on insurance requirements. You will spend less time in the waiting room and less time waiting for me in the exam room.
Transparent pricing that may afford a less expensive visit for those with high-deductible plans who have not met their deductible. You will know the cost for your visit at the time of your visit, and you won’t be surprised by bills that come weeks or months later.
Whether your visit is medical or cosmetic, we can take care of both issues without the stress of worrying about what is covered by insurance or not covered by insurance.
For patients with insurance benefits, you will still be able to use your benefits for pathology, laboratory work, and prescriptions.
Pathology services are available at a reduced rate with a board-certified, fellowship trained dermatopathologist for cosmetic mole or growth removals, patients who prefer transparent pricing, or those with high deductible plans that prefer to pay out-of-pocket.
For services covered by your insurance, we are happy to provide the necessary forms to get reimbursed from your insurance carrier as out of network.
