Thanks for your comments everyone. Like I said, this was a little unexpected. I return to work on sept 1, but I’m scared of pushing this off until then. I’m hoping that the dermatologist is affordable enough to just do out of pocket for the time being

The insurance company I work for outsourced a huge majority of my work to a third party, ontellus 🤮. I am not longer able to bill for NPNP, SDT and CNOS. I received 5 separate NPNPs from ontellus that either had the incorrect case style, signature block or date. I also sent out an email today after the 5th incorrect NPNP that started with “I am honestly starting to feel like I am on the show Punk’d and waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop into my office” continued in comments..

I would still think the former/old way is better from work planning perspective.
