The New Economy has resulted in changes how DC’s handle P.I. cases. Sad to say, DC’s can no longer bill the other person’s car insurance company and expect to get paid for services rendered. (The patient gets the check and spends it without paying us) Mysteriously, the patient cannot be found ever again. I’m attaching Dr. Nielsen’s new form that he is using that enables him to get paid in a nearly risk-free way on whiplash/PI cases.
Download this form to counteract the unfair tactics being used by so-called “Independent Medical Examiner’s.” All you have to do is hand this worksheet to your patient a day or two before they report for their IME appointment. Your patient simply fills out the worksheet and gives it back to you. All you have to do is compare the IME Worksheet your patient filled out to the IME Report. If the worksheet and the report do not match, then the IME doctor has some explaining to do and your chances of getting paid dramatically increase
A great tactic if you’re starting out (or flat) is to offer a free month of care. This is working brilliantly for Top Dogs and Young Guns. Here is a form that explains how this works to the patient, as created by Dr. Greg Nielsen. (Thanks Greg!)
