We’re thrilled for you – you’ve decided to bring on a new RDN or CNS! Your private practice is growing by leaps and bounds. Earlier, we covered considerations for making a new hire, plus legal and tax implications to review. Today, we’d like to address how Healthy Bytes can help you ease your new RDN into insurance and billing.
If you’re thinking about bringing on a new RDN or CNS, here are considerations for making a new hire – think about your growth goals, budget, whether to hire someone full or part-time, and how to find a good match for your private practice.
Are you finding yourself turning away clients because your schedule is booked through October? If you are, that’s incredible! Your nutrition counseling services are in demand! Perhaps you’re wishing you didn’t have to turn them away, however. Is it time to hire another RDN or CNS?
Hiring an employee, a partner, a colleague – is a big step. Here are a few things to consider
Many insurance companies are moving away from paper checks and toward electronic reimbursement. A provider typically has to have access to a payer’s online portal in order to successfully manage the claims filing process. We learned that many of you still opt for paper checks for a variety of reasons. Which do you prefer?
Recently, we covered referrals and recommendations, and how the referral process works. In this post, we’ll cover thinking outside of the “recommendations box” – many of us as RDNs and CNSs tend to think of physicians as the main source of referrals. But there are many other health professionals who can serve as partners who can recommend your business to their own clients.
