Does it seem like you’re working more hours on your practice yet not making more money? It may be because you’ve got several “leaks” in your practice.
These leaks are areas in your practice that unknown to you do nothing but consume your revenue. From before the actual patient visit to well after the patient leaves the clinic, medical practices can lose a lot of money because of these leaks. Could your practice be among those plagued by these leaks? Read on to find out and plug those leaks before they pull the plug on your practice.
Before the Patient Visit
Even before the actual patient visit, practices can lose a significant amount of income due to negligence in verifying insurance eligibility, which leads to claim denials and delays. According to the American Medical Association (AMA) 25% of private payer denials are directly caused by patients being ineligible for benefits.
