Setting the tone for payment is an important part of having a smooth running practice. When a new practice member wants to “pay per visit”, they are thinking of the co-pay model of modern medicine, and this is not a method that we want to emulate. However, people are often concerned that they will lose out if they pay monthly or pay in full before treatment begins. How can you address their concerns?
The truly great thing about setting up monthly payments or the pay in full method, is that it’s a win-win for you and your practice member. By avoiding the co-pay model you help them adapt to a new way of taking care of their health AND you free up your team from monitoring tiny, time consuming transactions all day long.
