Patient Balances


My physician wants to start applying a 10% late fee to patient balances over 30 days old.  Is this legal?  We are in Virginia if that matters

You need to check your state laws.  I'm not familiar with Virginia.  I believe in most states you can charge interest as long as your policy is posted and made available to patients.  Personally I think 10% for 30 days is a little harsh.

As Michele said, you need to check your state laws. Personally, I would consider applying a set "re-billing fee" rather than a percentage on the balance. But EITHER option has to be in the written financial policy that patients have signed. You can't just suddenly do this.
