Facts of Life: Understanding Medical Forensic Exam Payment Funding Facts

The fine intricacies of exam payment related to the medical forensic examination can be viewed as a labyrinth, a complicated network of passages or pathways. Healthcare clinicians providing medical forensic exams are often unaware of the complex network surrounding exam payment. These same clinicians are often unaware of the various funding sources, as well as resources available to them, to not only provide effective services to patients, but to sustain a medical forensic program. Healthcare clinicians will be able to report an increased knowledge of various funding options for medical forensic examinations, identify program grant funding resources, and understand available resources by exploring solutions to better equip programs with funding and patients with compensation.
