How Much Does It Cost?

Wouldn’t it be nice to know the price of a doctor’s appointment or treatment before your appointment? MK Dermatology is proud to be the first direct care dermatology practice in Indiana! Our direct care model is simple. No hidden fees, no surprise bills, no copays or insurance headaches.

There is NO membership fee associated with this type of care, so anyone can make an appointment with our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Kingsley. We focus on providing stress-free, high-quality skin care when you need it most.

What is Direct Care?

Dr. Kingsley and the MK Dermatology team are dedicated to the health and happiness of our patients. MK Dermatology’s direct care pricing model assists in providing a patient-centered experience, transparent pricing and no unexpected bills. Our direct care model decreases costs by cutting out the overhead that comes with insurance companies and regulations.

Many times, the cost of a visit is no more than most PPO co-insurance or specialty office copays. With our transparent pricing model, patients know the cost of their appointment before their visit.

If you are interested in self-submitting to your insurance for reimbursement, we will provide the codes needed to do so.

Creating Convenience

MK Dermatology’s direct care pricing model offers a transparent and convenient experience for our patients. It promotes increased access to Dr. Kingsley – whether patients have a quick question or need to make an appointment – along with shorter wait times. Patients can also expect:

  • No insurance headaches
  • No hidden fees
  • No copays
  • No medical bills in the mail
  • Increased access to your board-certified dermatologist

Pathology Pricing

If a biopsy is performed at your visit, it will be sent to a pathologist to diagnose. You can pay our direct fee to the lab of $65 per specimen (no matter how many stains may be needed). Or if you prefer, the pathology lab can bill your insurance directly.
