On average it should take a healthcare provider between 30 and 70 days to get paid after billing for a service.  If you have a high performing billing department 30 days is the gold standard, but the average is probably more like 45 days. 

On average you should expect it to take 30 to 60 days to get paid by government payers like Medicare and Medicaid. 

Concierge medicine, also known as concierge care, boutique medicine, retainer-based medicine, platinum practice, or direct primary care, is a membership-based healthcare model. Here’s how it works: 1. Membership Fee: Patients pay an annual fee to their physician’s practice. 2. Limited Patient Panel: Doctors limit the number of patients they accept, allowing them to spend more time with each individual. 3. Exclusive Care: Patients receive personalized care, including unlimited office and telehealth visits, direct access to their doctor’s phone line for medical questions, and simple diagnostic tests. 4. No Insurance Interference: Concierge medicine operates independently of insurance or corporate health systems. It’s an appealing concept for both doctors and patients, offering a more personalized and accessible healthcare experience compared to traditional primary care practices.

Also known as DPC, is a practice and payment approach where patients pay their physician or practice directly through periodic payments for a defined set of primary care services. Unlike traditional fee-for-service billing, DPC typically involves low monthly fees that cover extended visits, clinical and laboratory services, consultative care, and comprehensive management. Physicians benefit from simplified revenue structures, reduced administrative burdens, and increased time with patients. It’s a patient-centered alternative that emphasizes quality care and affordability
