Cost and Insurance FAQs

Are my prescriptions covered by my drug prescription plan?

Yes, all prescription medicines that we prescribe will be eligible for reimbursement through the drug prescription part of your medical insurance. We make all efforts to prescribe medicines that are on your insurance formulary list and recommend affordable over-the-counter medications. If a prescribed treatment is not covered by your medical insurance, please contact us to prescribe an alternative medicine.

Will I get a refund if the Dermatologist cannot help me with my skin problem?

In almost all cases, our dermatologists can diagnose and manage skin problems online. Occasionally, however our dermatologist may recommend a follow-up, in-office appointment with a dermatologist. In these circumstances you will be responsible for the initial DirectDerm consultation fee.
