Direct Pay Dermatology

Frequently asked questions

What is a direct-pay model?

This is a modern practice model that Dr. Osei-Tutu is passionate about and feels will inspire strong doctor-patient relationships. At Osei-Tutu Dermatology, Dr. Osei-tutu blocks out the bureaucracy that has clouded medical care by opting out of Medicare and discontinuing contracts with private insurance companies

Can I get reimbursed by my insurance for my visit?

For those with private insurance, upon request, we may provide you with an itemized and coded form and the appropriate out-of-network healthcare reimbursement form to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Not all insurance companies allow reimbursement for services. It is the responsibility of the patient to check with their insurance providers regarding rules regulating reimbursement.

Can I use my HSA account or Flex spending account for my visit?

Health spending and flex spending accounts are accepted forms of payment for medical services.

How are labs, biopsies, and mdications handled?

Your healthcare benefits remain the same and your insurance will remain in full effect for medications, labs, biopsies, x-ray, hospitalization, and all services provided by doctors who participate with your insurance. These are paid to centers not directly related to our practice to process and interpret any specimen or radiology. Patients may elect to use their insurance (with the exception of Medicare HMOs) to pay for any necessary labs or pathology.
