Facts and Figures about ASD...

The American Society of Dermatology (ASD), was founded on February 29, 1992, by a group of 12 dermatologists with the purpose of a new association that focused on the political and socio-economic concerns of dermatologists in private practice.
Through their efforts, the American Society of Dermatology was founded. ASD represents its members in those scientific, educational, socio-economic and legislative areas that affect the practice of dermatology. ASD devotes 100% of its resources to the socio-economic needs of dermatologists in private practice.
Your ASD colleagues face the same challenges you do: capitation, managed care, RBRVS, CLIA, fee negotiations. They've learned that ASD is an excellent way to deal with the challenges and changes thrust upon them.
ASD's Survival Guide to Managed Care Contracting is the best review I've seen. It hits all the issues.
