PREDICTION #4 –
TOS PAYMENTS ARE CRITICAL
Practices that master time of service
payments will be able to pay their physicians.
The “shock absorber” in private practice is the
physician’s take-home pay. Only those practices
that have substantial cash (elective) services or
that build strong time of service collections will be
able to sustain the physician’s desired salary.
Even surgeons will struggle with the balance of
insurance payments vs. patient payments.
