Payments We Accept
Central Florida Dermatology Associates requires payment or co-payment at the time of services rendered. We accept:
- Check (We do *NOT* accept checks for cosmetic procedures.)
We’re pleased to offer our patients the CareCredit® card, North America’s leading patient payment program. The CareCredit card is just as easy to use as a regular credit card, but it’s designed specifically for your health and beauty needs. Best of all, CareCredit offers convenient payment plans and no hidden costs. You can even use your CareCredit card over and over for follow-up appointments.
Apply now or to learn more about CareCredit, please contact us.
Late or Missed Appointments
Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment so that you have enough time to fill out your paperwork. If you arrive after your scheduled appointment time, we will try to accommodate you but there are occasions were you may be asked to reschedule.
We understand that things happen, but it does affect other patients when an appointment is missed. Rather than charge a missed appointment fee, we allow for 3 missed appointments without a call. After the third missed appointment without a call we reserve the right to refuse service. We hope you understand that this is for the benefit of our patients who would like to be seen as soon as possible.
Cosmetic Procedures Policy
Dr. Judge and the team at Central Florida Dermatology Associates will always develop a customized treatment plan to bring your skin to its optimal level of health. In order to accommodate all of our patient’s needs, we ask that half of the procedure costs are paid at the time of scheduling, and the remainder by the day of service or prior to the day of treatment. Missed appointments or cancellations requested less than two business days prior to the scheduled time will result in forfeiture of the procedure cost.
If you have any questions prior to your appointment, please do not hesitate to contact us so we can address your concerns as soon as possible.
As a courtesy to you, our practice will file all insurance claims. However, we ask that you supply our office with the current and correct insurance cards at the time of service for each visit. If you arrive without your insurance card, full payment is expected at the time of service.
If your insurance company charges a co-pay for your office visit, the co-pay may not cover the procedures performed while in the office. Depending on your plan, procedures such as biopsies, surgeries and wart treatments may be subject to your policy’s deductible.
Due to the uncertainty in the insurance marketplace, it is your responsibility to ensure that we are listed as a provider in your network and your visit will be covered by your specific plan. We will do our best to assist you.
If you have any questions regarding your plan, please contact your insurance company.
If you want to have your prescription refilled, you must have been seen by Dr. Kathleen Judge or one of the Physician Assistants within the past 12 months. You can call us at 407-481-2620.
All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian during their first visit. The legal guardian may be asked to prove legal guardianship, so please arrive prepared.
Minors who are established patients:
A minor that is 16 or 17 years of age can be seen by him/herself with a yearly office consent, yearly minor consent, and a Photo ID from parent/legal guardian.
A minor under the age of 16 can be seen with another legal adult with a yearly office consent, yearly minor consent under 16, and a Photo ID from parent/legal guardian.
The providers have the right to refuse treatment at any time should there be a case in which the presence of the parent/legal guardian is required.
