Learn how to have a successful cash practice (or how to build one whether you’re a new or seasoned clinician) and how to attract clients who are willing pay cash in this new healthcare environment. Understand the intricacies of getting on and working with insurance panels including the reimbursement process for Medicare clients. Learn about the most current payment methods, why using them could be beneficial to your practice and how to use them ethically, be compliant with HIPAA and protect client safety.
