Dear Patients,
It has been a difficult decision for us, but Redwood Family Dermatology can no longer accept Blue Cross insurance after September 30, 2022.  Blue Cross has made it increasingly difficult for us to provide you with the level of care you deserve and we find ourselves in an impossible and unfair position which is no longer sustainable. To this end, please be aware we will be considered out of network after September 30th 2022. 

If you would like to continue to see us after September 30th 2022, you will need to pay out of pocket at the time of service.  For Blue Cross members who know they have out of network benefits, we recommend to call Anthem Blue Cross to find out the process to be reimbursed.
