Call around & ask. Tell them straight out that you have no insurance & need treatment really badly for you acne.

My derm appointments run around $160. My last one was just $80 though, cuz it was a follow-up.

My insurance did not cover the prescription my derm wanted to give me & so gave me a coupon (which I didn't take - I made her write me a generic prescription cuz then my insurance would cover it). So they do have coupons sometimes for prescriptions.

This is the first time in my life I have had insurance, hah, and I still end up paying! Anyways, when I did'nt have insurance I used to go to the derm and it was only $75 for the visit. I just finally told this derm that I have already tried everything for several years and I don't want to screw with antibiotics and topicals because they are not working, surprisingly this women was real quick to get me started with the isotretinoin. And the other derm working there she had taken accutane herself.

I'd look into the details of your plan. Sometimes there are exceptions when there is no one in your area, but insurers don't like to make that public knowledge. Also, be persistent.
