Compelling Strategies for Managing Medicare Advantage Patients
Medicare Advantage enrollees have increased by 300% in the past 16 years. This increase has resulted in hearing care clinics seeing more patients that have "insurance” for hearing devices than ever before. By contract, these patients expect to obtain products and services through a private practice that are provided by their Medicare Advantage insurance program for either no cost or a small copayment. While these programs may seem beneficial for patients, they have become a financial disaster for practices and lowered the standard of care. This webinar will discuss the third-party landscape and share strategies for how to “manage managed care.” We'll also offer a method by which the private practitioner can stay in control of this managed care invasion of our practices.
