Billing
Patients will be billed separately for laboratory services. ADX Arizona Dermatopathology, will submit charges for our services to the patient's primary and secondary insurers. We will bill all insurances for patients even if we are not participating providers in the patient's health plan. We offer a self-pay fee schedule, and financial hardship policies are available for indigent patients. Credit card payments are accepted, and patients can also make their payments online.

Compliance and Medical Necessity
ADX Arizona Dermatopathology adheres to applicable federal and state laws, as well as the coverage limitations of private health plans. We are committed to complying with the law, and expect all our referring physicians to abide by the law as well.
