Chiropractic Billing 101: A Basic Guide

In my 20 years of professional bull riding I have had many highs and lows. There were times when the rankest of bulls couldn’t throw me and times when I couldn’t ride a rocking chair. When in a slump, what always worked for me, and for the number of young bull riders I now coach is, “When in doubt, return to the basics.” There are basic skills that every beginning bull rider learns. They are the simple foundation which your riding is built upon. As you move away from these basics, your riding suffers. When you reincorporate them, things improve.

As with bull riding, there are some simple basics that pertain to chiropractic billing as well. Take a minute and share with your staff this wonderful “Basic Guide.” It is from our friends at Core Products, with the help of Dr. Ron Short. This simple guideline will help you stay focused and ride this rank bull that we call “insurance.”
