Kats Consultants Video Keeping up with Codes

insurance Sep 24, 2018

Dr. David Kats: Hi, this is Dr. Dave Kats and Dr. Michael Perusich with Kats Consultants and we have a tip for you. We've been noticing that some codes aren't being paid too well right now around the United States. The 97140 is kind of falling into the disfavor with insurance companies, and so we had a meeting we said, what should we do? If the procedure needs to be done you need to do it.

What we've done is we've changed a lot of our manual therapy 97140 over to rehab, the 97110. Insurance companies like the 97110 and they'll pay for that pretty much like clockwork in most places. If you have a code that's not being paid for, you need to look at what you can do with that patient that will be paid, so the patient will get more of their care paid for. Especially if it has the same or a better beneficial effect for the patient that is for. There are some other codes that been formed by the wayside.

Dr. Michael Perusich: There are. We are starting to see a little bit of a trend across...

Kats Consultants Video Take Care of What you Have

business Sep 17, 2018

Dr. David Kats: Do you know that one of the biggest things you could do to build your practice is just take care of the patients you have? I had a doctor once, a wise doctor when I was young tell me, "You don't need more new patients, you just need to take care of the ones you have." That's very true. As a result, when I released a patient, I put 100% of my patients on a wellness.

I don't care if 9 out of 10 of them didn't follow through. That didn't give me the excuse to not suggest wellness for the 10th person. You know yourself that anytime somebody gets a chiropractic condition, even though it's corrected, the chance of that condition coming back is much higher for them than for somebody that's never had it before. If there's anybody that should ever get in for wellness care with chiropractic, it's the person that you've treated, the active patient that's now going to wellness program. Treat everybody, put everybody on a wellness program.

Dr. Michael Perusich: I think that's...

Kats Consultants Video Patient Retention

business marketing Sep 10, 2018

Michael Perusich: Hi, everybody. I'm Michael Perusich. This is Dave Kats. We're with Kats Consultants. Coming to you from The Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association Conference. We're happy to be here. Dave and I both are speaking this weekend and really enjoying getting to see all the doctors here in Nebraska. You know there is this common theme that keeps coming up amongst a lot of doctors. That's patient retention. Patient retention is a really important thing. It's a factor that plays into how well you do your scheduling.

David Kats: Yes. That's right. If you advance-model schedule your patients you're going to have a lot better patient retention than if you don't. When you advance-model schedule your patients you're going to have to do it. You have to schedule them for all the visits all the time. In other words, if you're going to schedule them for 18 visits, if you're going to suggest 18 visits, schedule all 18 visits.

Some people suggest an 18 visit schedule, for...

Dr. Dave: Hi. This is Dr. Dave Kats and Dr. Michael Perusich, and we have something special. We have a tip for you today. We're in a special location. We're at a seminar at the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association. Dr. Perusich is teaching the doctors and I'm teaching the CAs. This is my backyard. This is where I grew up. This is where I practice. It's been so gratifying to come back after about 20 years.

I had no less than 10 people today pull me aside and say, "When I joined your management company, it changed my life forever." They really were giving heartfelt thanks, and I'm proud of that and I'm humbled by it. I just want to mention that I think so many of you are in a situation where you could do so much better with management. It takes so little more to gain so much more.

Kats Consultants Video Tip Liability Insurance

Uncategorized Aug 13, 2018

 

Dr. Michael Perusich: Hi everybody. This is Dr. Michael Perusich and Dr. David Kats. We've got a video tip for you this week. One of the things that we always recommend is checking into, every year doing a little check up on your professional liability insurance, and making sure that you're covered in a manner that you should be.

Dr. David Kats: That's right. It doesn't take but one call, and it's usually they're very interested in talking to you. You can usually get right through and talk to your malpractice carrier and find out if you're doing anything that you need to have special coverage for. Most in church malpractice carriers will cover you for about anything, but a lot of times they want you to let them know if you're doing anything out the ordinary. I'd say every year or two, you probably should call your malpractice carrier and just talk to them and see if they feel you're properly covered.

Dr. Michael Perusich: That's right. Making sure if you've got associates in...

Uncategorized Aug 06, 2018

Dave Kats: Hi, this is Dave Kats and Mike Perusich with Kats Consultants and we have a tip for you. Today I want to talk about getting reviews. That is, the reviews on the internet. If you're under 70 years old, you look for reviews on the internet. If I'm going to go buy a car, I look for a review, if I'm going to buy a new piece of electronic equipment, I look for a review, if I'm going to buy a chainsaw, I look for a good review. Everybody's looking for a review. You have to have good reviews. You personally, your office has to have good reviews on the internet. Where do you get your reviews from? You can have patients give you reviews, you can have family give you reviews, you can have staff give you reviews, colleagues can give you reviews. Reviews are very easy to do. Right now, they can be done as of about a year ago, they can be done on handheld devices. If you have an Android phone, it already comes downloaded with Google Maps.

Uncategorized Jul 30, 2018

Dr. Michael Perusich: Hi, everybody. This is Dr. Michael Perusich and Dr. David Kats, we are here with this week's video tip. David, we were just talking off camera just a minute ago about HIPAA, and HIPAA Compliance and you're getting ready to do this in your practice. Dr. David Kats: I'm going to be training for HIPAA with my staff day after tomorrow and we're going to go through it at least once a year. It's amazing how many therapists and doctors don't do HIPAA Compliance training like they should. You need to train every new employee, as soon as you get that new employee, you have to train them. You have to train at least once a year and keep track of the fact that you trained with HIPAA. Now, if you are a member of us, you know that on our website, we have the training, all you have to do is play the audio and you'll have the HIPAA training done. Make sure that you take advantage of that. And if you are a member with us, we certainly invite you to do that. Either way, you've...

One of the things that's happened lately is a new revenue center has arrived and it is a good patient value. It became popular a few years ago during the Olympics when the athletes would walk out on the field and they would have this colored tape on them in different portions of their body. From that, the emergence of good value of Kinesio taping was founded. I don't do Kinesio taping myself because I don't practice right now but you do and you had have a good result with Kinesio taping.
