Today’s episode is an interview with Phil Plisky, PT, DSc, OCS, ATC, CSCS. Phil works at an insurance-based clinic that generates a large percentage of total revenue from cash-pay injury-prevention programs. I’m really pumped to start presenting more ideas of how any practice (cash-based OR insurance-based) can generate more private-pay revenue with non-treatment services.

As I’ve said before, being 100% out-of-network for treatment services will simply not be an option for plenty of clinics out there. So it is imperative that they find non-treatment cash-based services that can offset the decline of third party payor reimbursement over time.

Phil Plisky – cash-pay injury prevention programs

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • How Phil moves people from insurance-based treatment into cash-pay programs.
  • How these cash-pay injury prevention programs generate more referrals for the practice (both insurance-based AND cash-based clients)
  • The Y-balance Test and other injury prediction tests you can utilize in your practice
  • How they price their cash-pay sessions, though they are in a “lower income” area.
  • A skillful way to “get your foot in the door” with local teams and athletic programs to implement these injury prevention programs.
  • The great results they had with implementing an injury screening and prevention program with the Milwaukee Brewers and US Army.
  • Phil’s answer to my question regarding the “turf-war” there seems to be between Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists.
  • What to do during a patient’s evaluation in order to maximize your results as well as the ability to move them into useful cash-pay programs.
