Why use locum tenens physicians?
- In most instances, locum tenens physicians more than pay for themselves in terms of professional service revenue.
- The absence of one physician for one week can cost thousands of dollars of lost revenue.
- In most cases, a hospital or clinic can bill for the locum tenens physicians’ services using the permanent doctor’s provider numbers.
- Locum tenens physicians can be brought in to demonstrate the viability of an incremental position and its return on investment prior to the new medical physician joining the ranks permanently.
- The absence of one physician can cause increased wait times, cancellations, and patient dissatisfaction.
- It takes an average of 9 to 12 months to recruit a permanent staff physician; locum tenens help bridge the gap.
- Work with a candidate on a locum tenens basis prior to making a permanent hire.
Additional benefits of utilizing a locum tenens physician include:
- Patient satisfaction
- Referring physician satisfaction
- Existing physician retention
Also, in most cases, a hospital or clinic can bill for the locum tenens physicians’ services using the permanent doctor’s provider numbers. This also applies for a period of six months if a temporary physician is taking over for a doctor who has been terminated or left the practice voluntarily.
Finally, be aware that special modifier codes can be used when a locum tenens physician begins seeing patients before their Medicare/Medicaid provider number applications have been processed.
