If you’re a prime risk-sharing under Medicare Advantage, take your time.
Make sure, when you see your patient for their yearly visit, you book lots of time to engage them fully.
It may be the only time you have to bond, so you don’t want to be rushed. Answer their questions. Explain the justifications behind the health interventions you request.
You’re being paid very well to do just this one thing, to take your time.
Be intentional. Create a reputation. Become the clinician your patients are proud to call their own. One to whom they refer their friends.
Word of mouth is the best method of growing your panel. And growing your panel is a pillar of your Medicare Advantage success.
Medicare Advantage is completely different from traditional Fee-For-Service Medicare.
Take the time to do it right.
