Featuring Cory Rubin, MD | Release Date: March 14, 2024

In this episode of Derms and Conditions, our host, James Q. Del Rosso, DO, interviews Cory Rubin, MD, dermatologist and owner of the Michigan Dermatology Institute, about the business side of running a practice, with specific focus on the buy-and-bill model. 

Dr Rubin shares some of the challenges he has faced and explains the value of buy-and-bill for dermatologists, particularly in complex cases where medications may not be easily accessible through traditional pharmacies. They cover suitable medications, such as biologics for psoriasis, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and other conditions, as well as the financial benefits, clinical advantages, and patient convenience associated with in-office administration. 

The conversation dives into the practical aspects of implementing buy-and-bill. They explore the importance of understanding insurance processes, obtaining prior authorizations, and tracking patient outcomes. The pair emphasize the need to start small, gradually expanding buy-and-bill capabilities while ensuring proper documentation and reimbursement. 

Dr Rubin offers rich practical advice and reiterates the importance of mentorship and seeking assistance from experts in billing and reimbursement. He also extends an invitation for further consultation via email and expresses his willingness to support colleagues in navigating the complexities of practice management. This episode is a valuable listen for dermatologists looking to optimize their practice operations and enhance patient care through buy-and-bill.
