Is Your Practice Fiscally Fit?
Highlights From Our Blog

The last few weeks have been very busy for healthcare providers.

In case you missed them, we thought some of our recent posts might be important to you.

If you use a Non Physician Provider in your office or hospital to service more patients, be sure to read "Incident To and Shared/Split Services - Effectively Billing for Non Physician Providers."

Financial Planner extraordinaire, Charles Auerbach's excellent recap of the ACA's financial impact show just how taxing the new law will be on your wallet.

We also have reexamined time-based billing in "Billing for the Inquisitive Patient."  There is a way to capture dollars for that patient that has a hundred questions!

Are all the new payment options as confusing to you as they were to us?  Visit our blog post on the AMA's resources to understand payment options.  Are these just the same old ideas repackaged?

Finally, see what CMS proposes for 2013. There's some good news here such as paying providers to coordinate care for a patient as he transitions from a hospital or nursing facility to home; and more increases for primary care docs.  (Sorry specialists!)

We hope you find these helpful:
