Is Carolina Skin Surgery Center in the network with your insurance?

It is very important to make sure that we are in network with your health insurance. You may do this 3 different ways:

  • Call your insurance company via the number on the back of your card.
  • Check the list below of insurance plans that we are in network with.
  • Call our office and ask to speak with our Billing Specialist. We will be able to collect your insurance information and can call to verify your benefits.  If you are scheduled for surgery, our billing specialist will verify your benefits one week before your appointment.  If you will owe anything other than your specialist co-pay (which is listed on your card) then we will call you to discuss.
