Is this really possible? How can a practice virtually wipe away processing fees? We are asked this question quite often, and the answer is simple as well as financially sensible: Federal legislation through the Durbin Amendment allows practice owners to provide patients an incentive to use cash or check and save.
Those who pay for services rendered with cash or check no longer need to pay the same amounts as those who choose to use a credit card. In this regard, if a patient chooses to pay with a credit card, their payment will reflect a small non-cash adjustment. This means you now have the ability to take complete control of your fees every month. They can be zero!
