Almost one-third of all new chiropractic practices fail within the first 3 to 5 years of practice. Why? Because, while new practitioners joining the chiropractic profession generally receive a sound education in chiropractic theory and physical medicine, they receive little or practical education and training in the business aspects of operating a chiropractic practice – the laws, regulations, technical/procedural procedures (coding, insurance and credentialing) and how to market their practice. All of these “short-fall” areas will dramatically affect the success of your chiropractic practice!
In today’s climate of overzealous regulatory oversight, omnipresent insurance second-guessing, unscrupulous lawyers, over-priced and ill-equipped chiropractic consultants, and marketing scammers, the chiropractic professional faces a constant struggle to establish and maintain a significant niche in mainstream medical care.
Forces of evil, such as shrinking access to managed health care programs, discriminatory payment practices targeting chiropractic, arbitrary utilization review reductions by the insurance industry, lack of available credentialing opportunities under worker compensation programs, limited participation in Medicare and Medicaid programs, the increased regulatory oversight and control over cash patient and wellness programs and the erosion in the financial condition of Baby Boomer retirement plans have come together as a “perfect storm” to impose unforeseen obstacles and hardships on chiropractic practitioners struggling to enter the profession as well as those who are already established but are struggling to stay competitive.
Chiropractic Legal Solutions has been formed for the express purpose of providing both new graduates of chiropractic colleges, as well as established chiropractic professionals, who seek to open and operate a chiropractic practice, with the essential information and support needed to overcome the related obstacles and achieve a successful and financially rewarding career in the chiropractic profession.
CLS offers doctors the a one-stop-shop to obtain all of the essential information and support – both of a legal and technical nature – that you didn’t receive in chiropractic college and that would cost a small fortune to locate and learn on a piece meal basis.
The CLS program has been designed specifically to advise chiropractic professionals on how to successfully setting up and operating their internal chiropractic practice, how to attain compliance with the laws, rules and regulations governing the practice of chiropractic and how to develop a successful – legal – marketing strategy to expand and develop their practice, rather than see it brought to the brink of failure
