You’re losing lots of money on your practice and you don’t even know it.
How could you not be aware of thousands of dollars being lost, you say? Surely that kind of money can’t just disappear without you knowing.
The answer: bad habits. Bad coding and billing habits to be exact. A lot of physical therapists fall victim to these habits without their knowledge, and it’s not totally their fault. Most of them have been misinformed or got used to a certain system that they didn’t know has long been outdated.
It’s time to break those bad habits and get your practice the profits it deserves!

One financially deadly habit that PTs make is forgetting to include all of these components into their assessment and management time.
