How much are your visits to the dermatologist?

Hi all. I have been going to my general practicioner for my acne drugs so far and he told me that if I wanted accutane I would have to see a derm. I took minocin for like 7 months and it helped some, but not enough. Now he has me on Cefaclor (anyone have any experience with this?) and I'm going to try it for probably 3 months before I go see a derm. But I think my family just switched to a new insurance so I think we have a $1k deductible, but I don't know if derm visits are part of this or not, probably so. My doctor is looking into what derms are on my plan right now. But in the mean time, could you guys give me some idea of what it costs each time you visit your derm? Thanks.

5 dollars to see the doctor, 4 dollars for prescription meds.

My parents are nurses though, so I get kick ass benefits till I'm 24....

We were paying $15.00 a visit, but our insurance has changed to $20.00 a visit....and my blood tests which are at a different location are free.

Dang!!! You guys got it for sooo cheap. Mine costs £110 per consultation, and medicines are prescribed by GP, which costs £6.30 each.

Its pretty cheap in Australia as well. Probably about $20 AUD to see a derm who doesnt bulk bill and free if he does (thats what i pay any way).

Find a different insurance company.  There plenty of competition do some research and look around.  I rather pay higher premiums for better benefits in the long run you'll save.
