Bill Sample / December 9, 2018 / Heather Patrick
The same can be said of a sample contract. If nothing bad ever happens the sample contract is fine. But if a problem occurs it may not work out so well. When starting your new business no one wants to think about things going wrong but unfortunately in this business things do go wrong and we all need to be covered by a comprehensive contract when this happens. It may not be anything you did wrong and it may not even be anything the provider did wrong but sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. If you do use a sample contract and then two years later find yourself in court with a former client you are going to wish you had looked into writing the contract a little more. Just having a contract doesnt cover it. You need to make sure the contract is very specific to your company.
Contracts are kind of like insurance you dont need them until theres a problem. But when there is a problem its a relief to have one. There are really a lot of areas that you need to make sure you are covered in and a contract is really the only way to do that. When starting a medical billing business there are many things to think about and writing a contract is just one of them. There are many expenses in getting started and most of us just starting out dont want to spend our limited investment money on an attorney. So what do many of us do? We "google" sample medical billing contract and use what we think sounds good and make up a contract for our business. That can be a big mistake. Thats what we did sixteen years ago when we started our business except there was no "Google" then.
Have you taken your pet to the vet recently? Chances are if you did you spent a lot of money! Quality pet care isnt cheap--but we all know how important it is for the health of our four-legged family members. Today were blessed with many diagnostic tools and procedures that werent available years ago. Problem is all these advancements come with a large price tag. And pet owners are often caught in the middle. They love their pets like family members but sometimes cant afford to take them to the doctor or pay for life-saving procedures. As a veterinary technician its one of the hardest things I have to deal with on a daily basis. Here we are with all the tools and skills available to help a pet but the owner simply doesnt have the funds to pay.
