Can I claim insurance at dermatologist?
If you have an HMO you can expect to need a referral before you can receive coverage for a dermatology appointment. However, if you have a PPO you may not need a referral. Some PPO plans require referrals but some don't. The best way to know is to contact your insurance company or read through your plan details.
How much does dermatologist cost?
On average, an initial consultation with a dermatologist will cost somewhere around $150. Factors such as the location of the practice will also affect the price of dermatology visits as well. Some dermatologists do offer structured payment plans or other payment options, which help make their fees more affordable.
