Transition to Hospital-based Clinical Area
Thank you for choosing UConn Dermatology for your health
care. We are dedicated to providing you the most up-to-date
and safest care possible.
On May 1, 2011, when the Dermatology practice at the
UConn Health Center transitioned to a hospital-based
clinical area of the John Dempsey Hospital, it became
governed by all guidelines required for clinical care and
monitoring required for a hospital. As a result, numerous
improvements in patient care and safety were initiated into
our daily routine. However, the Dermatology physicians are
not employed by John Dempsey Hospital but remain UConn
Medical Group employees. For some procedures, such as
surgeries, both John Dempsey Hospital and UConn Medical
Group will separately bill your insurance carrier. Depending
on your insurance coverage, you may be subject to co-pays
for both John Dempsey Hospital and UConn Medical Group.
If you receive an insurance explanation of benefits (EOB)
or a statement from either John Dempsey Hospital or UConn
Medical Group and have questions, please contact us at:
We will review your account to ensure its accuracy. In
addition, we will review what payment options are available
for you and investigate how we may further assist you.
We appreciate your visit to the John Dempsey Hospital
Dermatology Department. Your satisfaction with both clinical
services and subsequent billing services are very important
