Dermatology Billing Associates Adds Charleston Practice to Client List

Inga Ellzey Billing Companies' Dermatology Billing Associates, a company providing outsourced billing services to dermatology practices nationwide, has added a South Carolina client, Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston.

The dermatology practice specializes in medical, research and cosmetic services, and had been looking to outsource its medical billing for quite some time.

Its affiliation with Dermatology Billing Associates officially commenced on August 1, 2022.

“As the insurance industry continues to morph into a new ball game, the billing changes continue to be challenging and the struggle to keep up with educational resources became very taxing,” said Medical Director Dr. Todd Schlesinger.

“Our staff was very excited to meet the team at Dermatology Billing Associates and are thrilled to be able to rely on their wisdom, judgment, and expertise in dermatology.”
