Dermatology vs. MedSpa Visits
At Vivo MedSpa, we want you to have the best possible experience when it comes to your healthcare services. Part of that experience involves making sure you are fully informed about all aspects of your care, including insurance and billing.
However, we are a Spa;therefore,no treatments will be covered by insurance. We do not accept any insurances.
If you have a dermatology issue, an office visit would need to be scheduled separately through
Erikson Family Medicine (208) 542-7060. They would also bill your insurance for that visit.
What is a dermatology visit?
Dermatology visits are classified either new patient visits or follow-up visits, during which a concern regarding skin, hair, nails, or mucous membranes is addressed. The evaluation may be extremely focused or may require a more extensive evaluation of the entire skin system.
Dermatology visits usually include the following with your co-pay (if a co-pay is required by your insurance plan): • A review of your medical, surgical, family and social history • An in-depth review of the history regarding your dermatologic concerns • A physical examination • Education and counseling • Prescriptions • Ordering of labs (performance of ordered labs is billed separately)
Many times, the treatment of dermatologic conditions is only achieved, or most effectively achieved, through dermatologic procedures, and not by prescription medicines. Sometimes a combination of both procedural and prescription treatments will provide the most effective means of improvement of your condition.
The following are examples of treatments that may be offered during your dermatology visit, but they are considered procedures, and will be billed separately from the office visit (this list is not all-inclusive): • Liquid nitrogen treatment (cryotherapy, “freezing” or “burning”) of benign, pre-malignant, or malignant lesions • Intralesional injections • Intramuscular injections • Electrodessication and curettage (“scrape and burn”) • Biopsies •Excisions • Removal of any skin lesions • Incision and drainage of abscesses/cysts • Photodynamic therapy (PDT or Blue Light) • Acne surgery • Patch testing • Wart treatments
All treatments, and gift cards, and coupons are non-refundable.
Children are not permitted in treatment areas and should be under adult supervision at all times. The safety and well-being of children is the responsibility of the client. Laser or aesthetic services is not a place to bring your children. We have equipment and lights that may damage them. They are not allowed unattended in the lobby.
