Hello,

I was wondering what everyone is currently doing about sending patients to professional collection agencies. 
The Dr's I bill for are split on sending patients at this time, since many are out of work.
What are your offices doing?

Tough question to answer, I see it from both sides. What does the doctor's financial policy state, that patients have signed? What dollar amounts are we talking about? How many months outstanding is the debt on average?

All debts are over 90 days.  Financial policy does not have anything in it pertaining to Covid 19, or any other reason for giving patient more time to pay.  They have decide to allow and additional 30 days.
