Preparing for Your Appointment
Serving all patients in our community
We look forward to seeing you at Twin Cities Dermatology Center. We welcome commercially insured, self-pay, Medicare, Medicaid, and Medical Assistance patients. We have contracted with all major insurers to meet your medical health care needs. While we welcome Hennepin Health patients to our Center, it will not cover your medical visit since it has not included us in its network. Please call us regarding any questions about medical coverage or payment for services.

Blue Cross Blue Shield
Medicaid (MN and WI)
Preferred One ( excluding PreferredHealth and plans restricting you to a certain network such as Park Nicollet/Health Partners, Fairview, or Health East)

Complete emailed intake forms in advance to reduce wait time
For new patients, please take a moment to complete and submit the patient INTAKE FORMS ONLINE via the AdvancedMD Patient Portal. A link was emailed to you when you booked your appointment. Please provide an email address while booking your appointment online or via telephone so that you can receive the Patient Forms Notification email. Through the Patient Portal, you can communicate with us before and after your visit, view your electronic health record, request medication refills, and review payment receipts.
Please request that records be sent to Twin Cities Dermatology Center if you are transferring your care or if visit notes and pathology reports will be important to continue your care through the RELEASE OF INFORMATION form.
What to bring to your visit
To your visit, please bring a government-issued ID (to identify you as the patient and insurance beneficiary) and medical insurance ID card (to confirm your benefits and financial obligations). There is complimentary parking and easy access to the Center.
Medical insurance copays (co-payments)
Payment of insurance copays are required and due at the time of service for every office visit, unless the visit is a post-operative follow-up or a nurse surgical removal only visit. Please bring a form of payment (cash, check, charge card) to fulfill this benefits obligation.
Charge card on file policy
For commercially insured patients who do not have a copay at the time of service: We require a debit or credit card on file at the first visit for any remaining balance not paid by your insurance and that is not paid by you after 45 days of invoicing you. Medicare, Medicaid, and Medical Assistance patients are excluded from this requirement.
Clinic visit cancellation and no show policy
In the event that you cannot attend your appointment, please call or email us at least 24 hours before your appointment time to avoid a cancellation fee. Failure to cancel an appointment may also result in a no show fee. Presentation 15 minutes late for an appointment may result in appointment cancellation and charge of a no show fee. Please contact us as soon as you are aware of a scheduling conflict so that we may better serve you and reschedule your appointment.
Inclement weather policy
In the event of unsafe weather conditions, your safety and the safety of our staff take priority. Please contact us regarding cancellations as soon as possible and we will reschedule your appointment to another time that is best for you. We will try our best to announce Center closures or delays as soon as they are known.
