Bella Cara Dermatology will file claims directly to Medicare, PPO insurance companies and managed care plans. Before your office visit, please make sure:
- Your insurance information is up to date.
- Your insurance company accepts claims from Bella Cara Dermatology.
Once your insurer has processed the claim, you will receive an explanation of benefits (EOB) from your insurer informing you of the amount it will pay for your medical services.
- The EOB is not an invoice, but it may indicate that a balance remains which is your responsibility. That balance may include your copayment, deductible, or other costs outlined in your terms of coverage. If you have a question about your EOB or your terms of coverage, contact your insurance company.
- Your insurer will inform Bella Cara Dermatology about any balance you owe, and we will send you a bill for that amount.
- If you are covered by more than one insurance plan, your primary insurer will process your claim first, and then any remaining balance will be billed to the secondary insurer. If a balance that is your responsibility remains after the secondary insurer has paid its portion of the claim, Bella Cara Dermatology will send you a bill for the balance due.
