Do you know where your fee schedule came from? Is your office manager working off of a fax of a fax of a fax of a fee schedule created by a billing company you used years ago? Stark laws prevent physicians from comparing fee schedules–so how do you come up with your fee schedule?
Whether you are just starting your own medical practice or a seasoned veteran, I think you will find the information in this webinar very informative. The topic is “Building a Profitable ad Defensible Fee Schedule”. And as usual, if you can’t attend, the information is available to you (free) if you visit the webinar section of Frank’s website.
Here is a brief description of what you can expect:
The fee schedule is the medical practice’s most important, yet least analyzed financial tool. Learn the benchmarks, metrics and resources needed to analyze and fine-tune your practice’s fee schedule code by code. In this workshop, Frank Cohen, data analyst and statistician, will show you how to identify over and under-priced services and how to solve low-paying fixed-fee contracts. Methodologies will include RBRVS, time, global charge models and benchmarking against national and state charges. When complete, attendees will have acquired the skill set necessary to immediately begin their own in-depth fee schedule analysis.
For a nominal charge, attendees will have access to a complete tool box, which includes recorded versionsof the workshop handouts along with worksheets, templates, benchmark data and other resources necessary to assist with the fee analysis and development process.
