Insurance, Billing & Payment

The Fortson Center is an in-network preferred provider for Blue Cross and Aetna plans in Alaska, and also works with most other insurance companies doing business in the state. When you visit us, you will receive the in-network reimbursement rate in your Blue Cross or Aetna plan for covered services with these claims filed for you by our office. We do not bill other private insurance plans. VA, Medicare and Medicaid (Denali Care and Denali KidCare) are also accepted.

Dermatology services are covered in whole or in part by the majority of insurance plans, while most cosmetic treatments are self paid. Cosmetic dermatology and aesthetic services in a medical setting may be reimbursable by your insurance company or health-savings account. Please consult your insurance provider for more information.

Payment for most services is expected at the time of your appointment. You may use MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express or CareCredit. At the time of your visit, you’ll be provided with the documentation needed to submit a claim to your insurance company, as needed, and receive reimbursement directly. Please bring your insurance card and identification card to each appointment.

CareCredit is an option that provides special healthcare and wellness financing which you can pay monthly. It is designed to assist you in making medical treatments and cosmetic procedures more manageable.

If you have questions about your bill or insurance coverage for our services, call our billing office at 907.770.9630.

HANDWASHING, MOISTURIZER & THE VIRUS

Tips for Safe & Healthy Hands

Hand washing is critical to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. However, a side effect of frequent handwashing is dry skin that can itch, flake and crack, causing wounds that can allow the entry of bacteria and other germs. Moisturizing your hands after washing is very important step.

  • Wash your hands using lukewarm water for at least 20 seconds. Make sure to thoroughly soap between your fingers and around your nails.
  • Moisturize immediately after washing -- using lotion while your hands are slightly damp will help lock in the moisture.
  • When soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer. The CDC recommends a sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to kill germs. Since these can be drying, it is especially important to use a moisturizer afterward. With sanitizer; however, be sure that your hands are completely dry before applying the moisturizer.
  • Using a moisturizer after washing or sanitizing your hands does not negate the effects.
