Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Develop strategies for county systems that deliver derm care to survive in the era of health care reform
  • Recognize the upcoming challenges for county systems and free clinics to deliver dermatologic care
  • Identify the unique dermatologic cases that are best served by our county systems

In an exciting decision by the Supreme Court, the health care reform act was upheld. Our underinsured patients will now be eligible for insurance. We will discuss how this new policy will affect delivery of dermatologic health care to this population and analyze how our current system can survive and thrive in the new era. We will also highlight areas of dermatologic delivery of health care in which we have excelled. We want to offer expertise and strategies that were developed so that these can be exported to existing systems.
