Insurance Accepted

We accept most major health insurance plans; however, it is your responsibility to contact your insurance carrier to verify coverage and benefits. Patients may be held financially responsible for payment of services should the insurance company deny responsibility. Be sure to bring your insurance card with you every time you visit Morris Dermatology/Joliet Dermatology. We file secondary claims as a courtesy for our patients.

Please make certain to obtain referrals if your plan calls for it and in certain cases, know that plans require prior authorizations for procedures. Please note that Morris Dermatology/Joliet Dermatology does not participate in Medicaid programs or Independent Physician Associations. Our billing office can assist with obtaining a prior authorization and verifying network status if needed. Please call 866-701-4710 with questions regarding insurance.

CONNECT
To Our Patients:

Out of abundance of caution and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic we are screening patients based on the urgency and acuity of your need for a face to face encounter. If your care is deemed a non-essential healthcare service, your appointment will be rescheduled to a safer time or you will be offered teledermatolgy service using your computer or smartphone.

We are now scheduling telehealth visits for new and established patients, so we can promptly address your skin concerns. Please call the office at 815-941-5160 to set up a telehealth appointment.

If you will be coming to the office due to the essential or urgent nature of your skin condition, we suggest that companions wait in the car for the duration of the visit.

If you develop flu-like symptoms such as cough, fever and/or shortness of breath, contact your primary care doctor for management and please reschedule your appointment with our office to a later date.

These steps protect you, your companions and our clinical staff. Thank you for your cooperation during this challenging time.
