Striking the right balance with collections


By John K. Wisniewski

BCMS CEO/Executive Director


This would be a good week to evaluate your patient collection policies, particularly internal processes, outsourcing or factoring arrangements, write-offs and tax implications.


It's costly to collect and costly to give up -- be sure you have struck the right balance for your practice.
