77% of Practices Take Risks With Patient Payments

Posted by Jim Turner

When we talk of risk, one of the first things that often comes to mind is skydiving. The reality is that there's a 0.3% rate of injury for every 1,000 jumps. That could mean anything from a minor scratch to a life threatening injury. The truth is that you are taking more risk on your daily commute. The average driver is more likely to be involved in a fatal car crash than the average sky diver is to get injured. In a similar way, practices think they are taking risks if they talk to their patients about money when, in fact, they are taking a larger risk by not talking to them. 

In the same survey I linked to last week (https://revcycleintelligence.com/news/36-of-providers-never-address-patient-financial-responsibility) is a little reported survey statistic. Only 23% of practices ALWAYS discuss payment with their patients. That means the remaining 77% sometimes or never discuss payment. That’s quite a risk.
