Cash Basis patients

Our office is getting more and more patients needing medical care, but who are without insurance.  We are in the process of developing a policy dealing with these patients, and I would sure be interested in hearing how other offices are dealing with this trend.  Thanks

I used to work in a chiropractic office and we had a large cash based patient list.

We offered payment plans and also discount management plans to our patients who were finished with their acute treatment and into their maintenance plans.

You will need to work with the practice doctor and/or manager to determine reimbursement based upon medicare schedule and the practice costs/overheads.
