This month, CMS released the 2014 Medicare data on every medical provider in the country that billed Medicare Part B in 2014. We have it. In fact, we've spent 4 days (literally more than 30 hours) taking the text files with more than 9.3 Million rows of data and compiling the percentages based on the raw data. We now have the 2014 MEDICARE UTILIZATION file in excel on 26 specialties at shop.donself.com and this year, it's only $59 for the excel files with all of them on one file to make it easier for you.
On June 16th, we'll be back in Cookeville, Tennessee again teaching an 8 hour seminar to the Cookeville AAPC chapter and we're looking at June 27 being in Mobile, Alabama for their AAPC chapter as well. When would you like us to come to your town and speak to your group? Since it not only doesn't cost your group for us to do so - but we end up writing a check for thousand or more to your group (we share the profits), let's talk about it.
We're also super busy signing up clients to perform CCM since the money is so darn good without the clinics having to hire nurses as CareSync does all the work.
CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT can increase the monthly NET profit of most solo primary care practices easily by $4,000 to $16,000 per month without:
1. The doctor doing anything
2. The staff doing anything
If your practice has 500 active Medicare patients, you're looking at $4,000 per month. If you have 900, you're looking at $7500 per month or $90,000 per year by doing what Medicare wants you to do.
Yes - this is possible since CMS gave permission for physicians to have an outside service provideR. In fact, here is what CMS has on their website "A billing physician (or other appropriate practitioner) may arrange to have CCM services provided by clinical staff external to the practice (for example, in a case management company) if all of the “incident to” and other rules for billing CCM to the PFS are met. " Note that in the same article, Medicare explains that the incident-to rules for CCM services are "general supervision".
Don Self & Associates has teamed up with a company that provides this currently for more than 100,000 Medicare patient lives in the country. Schedule a 15 minute phone call with Don to discuss this option. Again - the physician has to do nothing and the office staff also has to do nothing to see this improvement in patient care and the profitability is fantastic. Call 903 871-1172 now to schedule a time to talk to Don!
