ABILENE, TX – May 14, 2020 – In Medical Compensation Decoded, bestselling author and ophthalmologist, Dr. Charlotte Akor, has teamed up with five contributing authors to share the wealth of information they have amassed from a variety of clinical practice settings. Their collective expertise will help ophthalmology newcomers comprehend how they get paid and determine how to increase their paycheck in order to build a financially stable business.
“You just finished your residency or fellowship program, or you are just off your guaranteed salary and you want to get paid. You are tired of being paid like a resident. If you are off your salary guarantee, you do not want to have your paycheck cut in half. Most of the things I will explain should be researched before you join a practice, but it is not too late to do these things now. You must understand what must occur behind the scenes,” says Dr. Charlotte.
The topics covered in Medical Compensation Decoded will teach those starting out in the medical practice what seasoned physicians wish someone had taken the time to tell them. Abounding with tried-and-true insights and methods, sometimes learned the hard way, this instructive guide will help every novice ophthalmologist successfully navigate insurances, modifiers, telemedicine, money collection, and much more.
Medical Compensation Decoded is a comprehensive manual for young physicians who are committed to learning and understanding their craft. Overflowing with insight ranging from reference guides needed for billing, coding, and collections to overcoming the challenges of the traditional independent private practitioner to telemedicine codes, Dr. Charlotte and her colleagues provide the educational keys for collecting practice revenue.
