Santa Barbara, CA, February 03, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Mark F. Weiss, attorney-at-law, of Advisory Law Group, a nationally recognized expert on the business and legal issues affecting physicians, will be presenting a complimentary webinar on February 23, 2012, at 4:00 Pacific for physician billing service leaders on the impact of the consolidation of physician practices and on what they must do to support their client’s independence if they want their billing businesses to survive. Sign up is via www.advisorylawgroup.com.
“Billing service leaders have built successful businesses by doing extraordinary work for their client medical groups,” Weiss said.
“But as hospitals terminate their clients' contracts in favor of large national or regional physician groups and management companies, and as hospitals convert from contracting with groups to simply hiring physicians, the market for billing and collection will consolidate, leaving many billing services without a sufficient client base.
“In other words, billing services are becoming collateral damage in the war against independent hospital-based medical groups.”
Weiss, of Advisory Law Group, with offices in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, represents hospital-based physician groups and entrepreneurial office-based physicians across the country.
