Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.

“Your Fees”


“I see I all I need in life in the mirror” Mark Studin 2018


This past week I had 4 doctors in four sperate parts of the country share with me that the carriers and in court with defense lawyers are demanding to know the origin of the doctor’s fees. Lack of a legally defensible answer would have triggered fraud charges. This would have become a cause for the doctor to defend themselves for at least 2 years or more, inclusive of significant legal fees (better than $$6 figures) and no sleep during the process. Remember, your malpractice does not cover fraud defense.


Therefore, you MUST purchase the book Medical Fees in the United States 2019by PMIC. This is a Legally defensible solution and you must be pro-active.


I am sure there are other services or publications, but I can only certify with confidence that this one works. It gives you geographic modifiers based upon your zip codes, and you can choose what percentile to get paid in. Most of the doctors choose 75%. I haven’t read the new book to see what qualifies for 75% vs. 90%, therefore you get to decide.


Do not use this book at your own peril!!
