Medicare Insurance

Phoenix Dermatologist Accepting Medicare Insurance

What is Medicare?
Medicare is a federal run healthcare program accessible for Phoenix, Arizona residents who are:

  • 65 and older
  • Some younger individuals with disabilities
  • Other special circumstances

Medicare has different parts: Medicare A is free and is sometimes referred to as “hospital insurance,” Medicare B which is not free, and is sometimes referred to as “medical insurance,” and Medicare D which helps cover the cost of prescription drugs.

Medicare also has two different plans: Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage.

Original Medicare includes Medicare A and Medicare B and will cover much of your health care services and supplies. However, using this plan, you will pay for services as they are received and generally, there is a deductible and about 20% of the remaining cost. Supplemental plans may also be purchased to cover the 20% and the deductible.

Medicare Advantage includes A, B, and D parts and often offers benefits beyond Original Medicare like vision, dental, hearing and more.

Will Medicare cover my dermatology costs in Phoenix, Arizona?
In Phoenix, Arizona, depending on your coverage, Medicare should cover most of your dermatological costs. However, it will not cover any cosmetic services.

For skin cancer screenings, Medicare will cover the cost of your exam by our board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Hamann and Dr. Thaler, if there is a prior concern, or if you have a history of skin cancer. If there are no concerns nor a history, you will have to pay for the skin cancer screening out of pocket.

Does Medicare require a referral for Phoenix dermatological care?
Original Medicare does not require referrals but a Medicare Advantage plan will sometimes require a referral.
