 Frequently Asked Questions

What is Mobile Dermatology?

Mobile Dermatology is the concept of offering comprehensive in-house dermatology services in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living and Memory Care communities. The majority of the services offered in a traditional setting can be performed in-house, limiting the need for transportation and having to wait in a doctor's office. Mobile Dermatology allows the patient to be in the comfort and convenience of their environment.

What is the Cost?

We accept Medicare and all major health insurance ppo plans.  We do not collect co-pays or deductibles up front.  Primary insurance and, if applicable, supplemental insurances are directly billed. Responsible parties will be billed for any remaining balance.  The community will not be responsible or involved with the billing or collection. For more information about a specific plan coverage, please contact your insurance provider or reach out to our office for more detail.

How do we schedule an appointment?

Our practice will schedule a recurring day and time when our providers will be in your community.  This gives the community and patients continuity in knowing when to expect visits and when needed (prescribed/recommended) follow up services will be provided.  If there is an urgent need outside of scheduled visits, please reach out to our office for scheduling. 

 

What information is needed to see a patient?

We would need a copy of the resident’s demographic/face sheet (Name, DOB, Insurance information, contact info).  From there we will do all the work in getting service consents and if the resident has a Power of Attorney, we will reach out to them to get permission/consents signed.

Is a Referral Needed?

No referral is needed to be seen.
