Billing Information

WHAT DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR SERVICES?

This varies based on the service and on what is being treated. Please call our office at (512) 402-6694 to discuss pricing.

WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENTS DO YOU ACCEPT?

For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. We also offer “package” pricing for certain procedures such as Advanced FotoFacial,  EndyMed 3DEEP radio frequency skin tightening/body contouring, Blu Light therapy, TriBeam Q-Switched ND:Yag treatment for melasma, GentleWaves, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.

We also accept CareCredit, although it can’t be combined with other discounts or specials.

WHAT INSURANCE DO YOU ACCEPT?

Zimmet Vein & Dermatology is an “out of network provider” for most insurance companies. We will give you paperwork that you can mail to insurance for possible coverage of medically necessary treatments. You may wish to call your insurance company and review your “out of network” policy.

Insurance companies will only consider coverage for treatments that they consider “medically necessary.” We will be glad to write a letter of medical necessity supporting your request for authorization or reimbursement. However, many services (such as spider vein treatment) are considered cosmetic.

HOW TO FILE A CLAIM TO YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY FOR OUT OF NETWORK BENEFITS

Call your insurance company to see if they require you to use their specific claim form. If so, use their specific claim form. If not, download the general Health Insurance Claim Form 1500. Complete the top portion of the form. Be sure to include the policy ID number, patient’s date of birth, primary insured’s name and date of birth.

Attach a copy of the encounter form from our office for your date of service with the completed claim form and mail both to the claims address on your insurance card. The encounter form will be given to you at the office after your appointment and will include all necessary medical CPT and E/M codes.

If you have met your out of network deductible or do not have an out of network deductible to meet, you may receive payment from your insurance company. The payment should come directly to you. However, it is a good idea to send a letter with the forms requesting the payment be sent directly to you, not Zimmet Vein & Dermatology.

DO YOU ACCEPT MEDICARE?

Dr. Zimmet voluntarily “opted out” of the Medicare system. If you are a Medicare patient, we will ask you to review and sign a document stipulated by Medicare. The terms of coverage are regulated and governed by Medicare, and state that you agree not to file your claim with them. Please call our office should you have questions about the “opt out” status.
