Obamacare promises to make changes that will hopefully help the masses, but clearly there are a number of challenges that physicians will face as a result. However, medical practices can thrive by adding 'non-insurance based services' to their portfolio, such as dermal fillers, botox injections, anti-aging treatments, non-invasive body sculpting, and medically supervised weight management. To assist physicians in profitably adding these procedures and programs to their practices, the IAPAM has announced the next dates for its respected Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: April 5-6, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (February 20, 2014) -- There has been much talk in the media and physician community regarding the Affordable Care Act, well known as 'Obamacare' or the 'Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act' (PPACA). Many physicians members are concerned about how this new program will impact the health of their patients and the health of their medical practices.
However, there is evidence that by adding non-invasive treatments to a practice, such as botox, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion/microchanneling, chemical peels, body contouring technologies (e.g. skin tightening, fat reduction), lasers for skin rejuvenation/tattoo removal/hair removal, and medically supervised weight management programs (e.g. hCG Diet), would increase the income a practice is able to make as payments will have to be made directly and immediately to undergo these procedures.
To support physicians seeking both clinical and business training in adding these aesthetic modalities, the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) designed its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium to give physicians all the information, forms, DVDs, hands-on training, etc. they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference.
The IAPAM is the only complete program that offers:
- An Accelerated program; physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
- Clinical training DVDs to take back to one's practice;
- Board Certified Dermatologists as instructors;
- Internationally Recognized Certification;
- CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
- 1 Year of Practice Support (which continues as long as one is a member);
- And much, much, more!
"The IAPAM has noticed a sharp increase in the registrations for its cosmetic procedures hands-on CME training programs like botox/fillers, lasers, medical microdermabrasion, and non-invasive body shaping; along with its medically supervised weight loss program, all of which are not insurance covered and affect a majority of their existing patients," says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com). "Patients may not get the long term benefits of a face lift, but with a combination treatment of botox, dermal fillers, weight loss, etc. they can get a great result at a fraction of the price."
