    6 Biggest Factors Impacting Your PT Clinic’s Cash Flow

    Most of us went into physical therapy so we could make a difference in our patients’ lives. PT can be extremely fulfilling and rewarding—and for many of us, owning a practice has been a lifelong dream. Once that dream becomes a reality, however, it can be a sobering experience. Bills need to be paid and bottom lines need to be met. It’s not always easy to bring in enough money to cover cancellations and billing snafus, not …

    3 Common Rehab Therapy Credentialing Mistakes

    Proper credentialing is a crucial step in running a successful physical therapy clinic. If your clinic and therapists aren’t properly credentialed with insurance providers from the get-go, your bottom line might suffer. And it’s not just new clinics that are susceptible to making credentialing mistakes; in fact, any clinic that has gone through a change in ownership, rapid growth phase, or any other transition might find itself mired in credentialing headaches. But before we get to the …

    What's the Right Payer Mix for Your Practice?

    Insurance payments for healthcare services have been declining for a while now , which means providers in all disciplines are looking for ways to optimize their payer mix in order to maximize their revenue. If you haven’t yet calculated the cost of providing your services—and compared that number to the payments you’re receiving to ensure you’re actually making enough money to not only cover those costs, but also turn a profit—then you should. But the question remains: …

    Physical Therapy Billing Open Forum

    It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s—a physical therapy billing expert? If you’re a physical therapy practice owner, manager, or biller, then you’ve probably wished for a billing superhero at one point or another. After all, while the PT billing process seems fairly simple on paper—therapists provide services, submit the CPT codes for those services, and receive payment—any seasoned pro knows it’s anything but. Rejections, denials, and reimbursement delays are more common than any of us would …

    What Independent PT Practices Can Learn from POPTs

    Physician-owned physical therapy practices (POPTs) get a bad rap in the private practice world. After all, many independent PTs blame them for dwindling referrals and revenues. But, those physicians are doing what every healthcare provider is doing in this challenging healthcare environment: trying to take over the world. Just kidding—trying to remain profitable by adding additional revenue streams that benefit their patients. So, rather than complain about what others are doing—and what is and isn’t fair—PTs might …

    Aging Out: A/R Basics for Rehab Therapy Practices

    Some folks say the best things in life are free. While that may be true in many cases, in a rehab therapy practice, the best things ( like keeping the lights on , for instance) require cash money. But as any practice manager or biller knows, cash flow from paid claims isn’t always consistent. Between fluctuating reimbursements and aging claims, keeping track of your clinic’s revenue can be a full-time job—especially if you don’t have an efficient …
