Are approved workers compensation patients billed directly?

Patients with an approved workers compensation claim may have their treatment billed directly to their insurer.

Your dermatologist will assess, diagnose and treat your condition like any other patient. Within the workers compensation system, they will also assess your capacity to return to work.

Your insurer will be billed directly when you provide a compensation claim approved by your insurer, including the claim number and date of injury.

Patients that explicitly request advice or treatment outside of the scope of the claim will be directly liable and billed as a private patient. As such, you will be subject to our clinic's standard fees and policies for private patients.
