Health Care Providers

Working with health plans

Health care providers play a critical role in helping patients access care from their health plans

As a health care provider you have the information needed to explain to an insurance company a patient's condition, medical history and the importance of a prescribed medication. If a claim for a treatment is denied, you may need to write a letter of medical necessity and/or call a patient's health plan provider as part of an appeals process.

To assist your patients in getting the appropriate care to treat their psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis, here's a list of resources to help you work with health insurance companies.

If you need assistance, please contact the Foundation's Health Policy Manager by
email or call 800.723.9166, ext. 423.

Please note: The American Academy of Dermatology or your state dermatology organization is the best resource for reimbursement and coding questions.
