Mohs and Insurance
Physicians who accept any insurances must follow the guidelines for those insurances, or they can be dropped from being allowed to provide for that insurance. Thus, if your insurance requires that you pay 20% of the procedure, a physician must have you pay that or they cannot bill the insurance for the procedure. You may be able to work out a payment plan for your portion with an office, but as a provider they must have the patients pay the co-insurances, co-pays, etc. that the insurances require. Additionally, Mohs can only be done to one site at a time, per insurance guidelines. You will need to wait approximately 30 days or more between procedures to allow for proper billing terms.
