found this disclaimer on the website of a bone & joint practice that just emailed me about taking over their billing


Please give a 24-hour cancellation notice before your appointment date to prevent a $100 charge from being applied to your account. However, the no-show fee if you do not come to your appointment AND do not provide a cancellation notice is $318.

As biller do you get % of that?

Man, if we had that in our contract we'd be sitting around with fingers crossed that no one showed!  ;)  How much do they make when the patient actually comes in?  Makes our +-$40.00 look like peanuts.....oh wait.....it is peanuts.

That would never hold up in court. I have a provider who took about 14 cases to small claims and didn't see a dime PLUS paid court fees.

Most patients don't pay it. You can credit report them but if the patient shows that NO Services were rendered, legally the collection agency has to take it off, same with court, unless provider can show SERVICES RENDERED it's not often they will get the money.  I once had a provider bill me for a no show of $225 .. it was a consult for ENT, the day before the visit my transmission went in my car, I called and canceled the appt that night. They put me into collections and all I had to do was show the collection agency it was a bill for No show and that no services were rendered. I'm sure it costs them way more in statements, postage, phone calls and then credit reporting. It's just NON productive.

I sure wouldn't pay, and no I don't get a % of that. I'm just now getting ready to quote them on the job.
