    Office Policies

      Our goal is to provide out patients with exceptional dermatology care. It is important that you have a clear understanding of our policies.

      We will file insurance claims as a courtesy for any non-cosmetic services we provide. Please provide our office with your current medical insurance card and information. Please also remember that your insurance contract is between you, your employer and the insurance company. Therefore, it is your responsibility to know your insurance coverage and which services are covered in your contract. Westshore Dermatology cannot guarantee payment of your claim. If your insurance does not pay, you will be responsible for your financial obligation to Dr. Mulligan and Westshore Dermatology.

      You are responsible for insurance deductibles and co-payments at the time services are rendered. Please confirm with your insurance company the amount of your co-pay. Full payment of services is due at the time services are rendered if we do not participate with your insurance company or if you do not have insurance coverage. We accept cash, personal checks, and money orders, as well as Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. A $25.00 service fee will be charged for any personal check that is returned for insufficient funds.

      If there is a balance on your account after your insurance has paid, you will receive a bill from us within 15 days. After 60 days, if your account is past due, it will be sent to in-office collections for review. If it is still past due after 90 days, it will be referred to an outside collection agency. In the event that you do not pay the balance, collection and attorney fees could be added to the balance of the account. You will not be allowed to schedule any appointment until payment arrangements are made on the account. Please contact our business office staff or practice manager if you have any questions or to discuss making a payment at (440) 617-9114.

      Because we are extending a credit to our patients with insurance, we require a social security number from our patients, or their responsible party. If you do not wish to provide your social security number, you will need to make payment in full for services rendered.

      We require 24-hours notice in cancelling an appointment. For missed or late-cancelled appointments, we reserve the right to charge a fee. For patients who have missed or late-cancelled three or more appointments, Westshore Dermatology reserves the right to dismiss that patient.

      Because cosmetic procedures are not covered under medical insurance, you are responsible for the full cost of any cosmetic procedure.
