Insurer scrutiny of every aspect of the practice of medicine, including dermatology has never been higher. There is a constant barrage of new payment policies and documentation requirements, as well as more frequent auditing of medical records. This session is designed to educate on the latest in insurer reimbursement concerns so dermatologists can be appropriately paid for what we do and stay out of audit hot water.
