Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains Health Insurance Coverage for Dermatology Services

LAS VEGAS - eTradeWire -- Regular visits with a dermatologist can help you identify early signs of skin cancer and treat various problems. While many avoid scheduling a visit with a dermatologist because they assume their medical bills will be expensive, the truth is that health insurance covers this type of care.

How Much Do Dermatology Services Cost?
How much you pay for a visit with your dermatologist depends on your health insurance. To determine your out-of-pocket expenses, refer to your plan's Summary of Benefits page and look at how office visits with a specialist are covered.

Depending on your plan, you may have to meet an annual deductible before health insurance covers any of the visits and treatment. In that case, you would pay for services out-of-pocket until you hit your annual out-of-pocket limit. At that point, services may be completely covered or you may have a copay, which is a specific dollar amount that you pay for the appointment, or coinsurance, which is a percentage of the cost of the visit.

Other health insurance policies do not have annual deductibles, or they pay for specialist visits without requiring you to meet it before coverage kicks in. In most cases, you have a copay or coinsurance that you pay out of pocket.

When scheduling your dermatologist visit, make sure you find a doctor within your plan's network. Getting out-of-network care generally results in higher cost-sharing responsibilities, if your health insurance covers the service at all.
