Published on

Cost accounting is extremely important for medical practices because without knowing the costs it becomes difficult to assess the profit generated by a particular service. It is not enough to be concerned only with overall profit. Providers should also know how much profit is coming from ancillary services, hospital work, office visits and so on.

Only when you take a good look at the costs associated with each optometry service, you can calculate the profit made by your practice. It will also help you run your practice in a businesslike manner.

Calculating the profit will also help you in determining the required reimbursement level when considering managed care arrangements.
