Where has the year gone? I cannot believe its November already.
I want to share with you a few of our strategies for ending the year on a good note and starting the next year off ahead of the game.
- Set goals for 2014: Production; Collections; Collection %; Hygiene; Specialty Procedures, etc.
- Review your fee schedule to determine whether an increase is in order.
- If you participate in PPO plans, negotiate an increase in your reimbursement rate.
- Remind patients to use their remaining insurance benefits before the year’s end. If they wait on needed treatment until 2014, they will have to pay their deductible again.
If you will take care of these things before year’s end, you can come to work on the first day of January, hit the ground running and concentrate on Dentistry.
