If you’ve got an established practice and are considering starting to take PPOs, or even adding a few new PPOs it is a big decision.
How can you sign up for plans and do the least amount of damage to your existing revenues? How will it impact your current patients? Should you sign up for a third-party PPO administrator? Will network-sharing be the best option? Direct contacts? Limited participation agreements?
The reality is that there are a lot of options for a practice to consider, the fees can and do frequently vary significantly AND an understanding of the impact on your existing practice revenues and patients is key!
