Do you know about the newest free tools in our Practice Management shed?

At the Academy, we are constantly creating new tools to help you in your practice. The three most visited webpages in the AADA Practice Management Center last quarter were the prior authorization tool, the Coding Resource Center, and MIPS measures for 2022. We have new tools for all these and more. Have you availed yourself of these new, free tools for members?

Tapinarof update. A new letter — developed and approved by dermatology experts — was added to the Prior Authorization Appeal Tool for the recently FDA-approved drug tapinarof, a new cream used for plaque psoriasis. With the addition of this new letter, the popular tool now has 55 drug appeal letters available for members to help further reduce their administrative burdens.

MIPS quality measure selection tool. Earlier this year we updated one of our most popular interactive tools to help you determine which quality measures you can report via AAD’s DataDerm, your practice’s EHR, or paper claims to satisfy the MIPS 2022 requirements. Check out the quality measures selection tool.

Coding and clinical guidance.

  • DermWorld has developed new coding articles and topics in its regular monthly coding column including:

    • CPT: Who are they, and why are they doing this to me?

    • Coding and reporting for immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining in dermatology

    • 2022 first and second quarter NCCI edit updates

    • Beware of poor coding habits — Modifier 59 is not the secret ingredient

  • Several new articles and topics have been posted within our Derm Coding Consult page. Topics include Cigna modifier 25, patch testing, virtual visits, revised codes, and more!

Once you’ve reviewed these new tips and tools, check out the vast array of other helpful resources available at the AADA Practice Management Center today.
