Excellent article! The points are very practical and we are big supporters of the Fix Your Practice. The amount of money Practices loose by not collecting co-pays up front or having the billing in disarray is staggering. If Physicians and Management looks at the allowed amounts under their contracts and set a goal to collect it all rather than just 80% or even worse 0%, the economic picture would start to emerge as promising.

No one is leaving his practice. Leave and do what? Be a bartender? And why blame it on health reform headaches? WHAT headaches? Health reform starts in 2014, if you're having a headache now, it has nothing to do with reform. Sure, salaries may go down but they would go down no matter what the health insurance landscape is. Salaries have stagnanted for years yet doctors are not leaving the profession[INVALID]we dont' know how to do anything else!
