Fees & Coverage

How much does it cost?

Every procedure comes with its own fee. When you’ve met with a dermatologist to determine the best treatment and course, you’ll receive a quote at that time.

Most treatments require a consultation. We’ll note your credit card information when you book, and we won’t charge the card until the day of the consultation.*

After your appointment, you can pay with cash, debit, VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Pacific Derm gift certificates.


*If you miss an appointment, a cancellation fee will be charged to your credit card.

If you need to cancel or change an appointment and don’t provide more than two business days’ notice by phone, the same cancellation fee will apply.


Am I covered?

If your doctor has referred you to one of our dermatologists, The Medical Services Plan of BC (MSP) covers the consultation and follow-up appointment fees for five months. After six months, you’ll need another referral.

MSP doesn’t cover certain treatments for medical conditions that are considered optional or cosmetic.

A Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) is another way to cover costs. Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows business owners to tax deduct 100% of medical and dental expenses through a PHSP. You can arrange this through The John Robinson Group Inc. and Trusted Advisor™. Visit trustedadvisor.ca for a list of approved expenses and an application form.
