Payments & Insurance Information

Payments Forms Accepted:  Cash or Check
Cypress Fairbanks Dermatology uses the “direct care” approach to providing medical care. Direct care is an innovative way to provide healthcare to our patients at discounted prices by eliminating costs associated with insurance and government involvement. By reducing our administrative costs and other nonessential healthcare industry red tape, we can provide our patients with affordable medical care, quicker access for treatment, individualized attention and service, quality time with the doctor, shorter office wait times, and known, upfront cost options for our services. We require our patients to pay their full balance at the time of service.
 
Health Insurance Plans:
Dr. Waidhofer’s fees may be covered by your health insurance plan.  We do not file claims, but make it easy for you to submit your own claim for reimbursement and will assist you if needed.  (For an easy step-by-step process on how to file a claim form, see our webpage “How to File a Medical Claim.”)  Upon payment of your office visit fees, you will receive a receipt specially made for insurance company claims submittal for out-of-network reimbursement that has the required CPT and diagnoses codes, which you will submit with your healthcare plan’s claim form. We will also be happy to help with any difficulties that arise with your insurance company.
 
Why do we not accept insurance or healthcare plans? Because we work only for you, not a government or health insurance group that will dictate how a patient can be treated or how much time the doctor can spend with the patient, and we can keep our prices low without the costs of extra personnel and time in processing insurance assignments.  Many of our patients have private health insurance but opt to use us to be treated quickly, to incur less medical costs, to spend quality time with the doctor to insure an accurate diagnosis, because doctors in their plans are not available or have long wait times, or because their plan does not cover certain skin care procedures. (Patients are sometimes surprised to find that many healthcare plans do not cover some skin disorders like warts, skin tags, cherry angiomas, benign moles, etc. and so they have to pay “out-of-pocket” anyway.) We endeavor to keep the cost of medical care affordable and, more importantly, known to our patients upfront.  We unite the physician and patient in a more simplified setting, allowing us to deliver a higher quality of care.  It is our strong belief that the chaos of our current healthcare system stems from the triangulation between the patient, physician and the health insurance company/government healthcare.
 
Medicare Patients:  Dr. Waidhofer sees Medicare patients on a private contract basis.   Medicare patients are required to sign a Medicare Private Contract.
 
Confidentiality:  Your medical record is a written documentation of your medical problem.  That record belongs to you and Dr. Waidhofer and will not be shared in any manner without your written permission.  Our office does not maintain electronic records to ensure your personal health record remains confidential.
