Preferred Provider


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.

Winter Weather Tips

Cold weather equals dry skin and hair. The extreme cold in Anchorage and many other parts of Alaska also comes with low humidity. Homes, offices, schools and shopping malls are dry. When inside or outside air is dry, your skin and hair also get dry.

  • Put a humidifier in your home or bedroom and keep the humidity level at 40%.
  • Shower for less than 10 minutes, using warm not hot water as hot water causes more dryness.
  • Avoid hot tubs as they also dry out skin.
  • Use soap or body wash only on areas that sweat or have hair.
  • Moisturize all over within 3 minutes of finishing a shower or bath with a good quality moisturizer. Stop by the Center and take a look at the many options available.
