Is your COVID-19 Response going to cost you patient visits in the future?

Patients who owe you as little as $100 may visit a different provider for their future needs.

According to an AthenaHealth study completed in 2017, “orthopedic patients were the most sensitive to balance size, with their return rates dropping 45 percentage points when their balance was over $200 compared to when they owed nothing.”

Here are 3 essentials to Preserving Patient Loyalty During Crisis:

1) Proactive Patient Communication

  • A Letter strategy to communicate your policies and available payment options
  • Being mindful of the tone on your outbound calls

2) Flexibility for Payment Options

  • Offer a deferred in-house payment arrangement
  • Helping patients understand your 3rd party finance options available to them

3) Extended Hours for In-House Patient Financial Advocates

  • Providing practical advice on subjects such as unemployment
  • Discuss other options that are available and what they might expect
