Overhead: that evil monster that will quietly eat up your gross collections until nothing is left for you to take home. It’s so dangerous because it’s often invisible. You get peeks of the overhead monster when you see a stack of bills on your desk or somehow lose money doing a case. In this course, we’ll expose your overhead wherever it’s hiding, develop systems to keep it in check, and suggest a method for evaluating fees.
- Calculate practice overhead and compare it to national averages
- Troubleshoot ways to adjust practice systems to improve overhead percentages
- Analyze procedure costs as a method of determining fees and evaluating third party benefit panels
