Dermatology billing can be intricate and complicated as it has evolved immensely over the years. It requires a clear description of skin lesions, including the size, the number, and the precise location. Dermatology billing also requires detailed information on the biopsy, excision, and lesion destruction
In addition to the constantly changing patterns of insurance and reimbursement policies, dermatology has also changed rapidly. Dermatology has expanded beyond medical and surgical. It now includes a variety of cosmetic surgeries.
