S2, Episode 13-Tom Furr with PatientPay- 12 Myths Uncovered About Reimbursements

S2, Episode 13-Tom Furr with PatientPay- 12 Myths Uncovered About Reimbursements

November 1, 2019

Have you been frustrated by the speed of reimbursements?

I recently took a survey of physicians. In that survey, one of the questions I asked was, what is your biggest financial concern?

Time and time again, physician after physician answered one word….  reimbursements.

So, I’ve been on a mission to help empower physicians with knowledge, resources, and tools to combat this problem. . I’ve often heard it said that physicians have a Porsche drawer. A drawer worth 70k or 80k or even 100k of bills yet to be paid by the insurance companies or the patients.

Our next guest, Tom Furr, is the founder and CEO of a company trying to speed all of this up.

He’s been quoted at least a dozen publications I could find online- everything from Physicians Practice to Becker’s Hospital CFO to H-I-S Talk.

In this podcast, you will discover:

- Why Tom founded PatientPay and how a late bill inspired him to establish this company

- My story of how my wife and I are slowing down reimbursements and what you can do about it

- How you can generate cash flow more quickly and speed up your reimbursements

October 25, 2019

Imagine this, picture this.

You’re stuck. You’re grinding through your day. One patient after another. You’re feeling numb, calloused to the world around you. You feel focused, but you’re losing your edge.

But, that’s not all…

You’re wondering what the heck has happened since medical school when you were so excited, so engaged, so optimistic. The assembly line still keeps on ticking. It seems so monotonous. Another patient and another patient and another patient. You are late, they are late. 5 minutes here, 5 minutes there.

You may be wondering, “Is this really the life I want? Can I keep going on like this? Should I stay in medicine?”

As many of you know who read the Freedom Formula for Physicians, I have a passion for reducing, eliminating, and destroying debt.

Now, she’s doing some really neat stuff with all that banking experience through a relatively young firm, Link Capital.

In this podcast, you will learn:

- Why LinkCapital Is Focusing On Physicians & How You Can Refinance Your Debts As a Resident or Fellow

- Learn the crazy amount (it's less than IBR) that you need to pay while in residency

- How rising interest rates is effecting what LinkCapital is charging

- Could your loan be sold after they refinance it? Find out what happens afterwards.
