There are several patients out there who are ready to seek help, and happen to be on an insurance plan that has a hearing aid benefit. Think about the impact to your business if you could fill empty appointment slots with patients that have a hearing aid benefit through a third-party referral network. New patients to the hearing healthcare market are experiencing unique challenges right now, and you are in a great position to be the one to assist them!
Think about your own health plan and included benefits that drive your behavior when seeking healthcare. Dentists and physicians within your plan are actively marketing to you. Chances are you will choose a provider that offers you care or supplies at a reduced cost as a part of a network. Your healthcare provider still sees a balance of private pay patients, along with multiple insurance carriers so their revenue streams aren’t dependent upon just one source.
In these unprecedented times, it is critical that you have a plan for your practice. Diversification of patient mix is key. Third-party referred Managed Care is an emerging lead source that can play a pivotal role in sustaining your practice’s patient flow. But first, you must understand the details.
