Why use Locum Tenens Providers?

Revenue Maximization

  • In most instances, Locum Tenens providers more than pay for themselves in terms of professional service revenue.

  • The absence of one provider for one week can cost thousands of dollars of lost revenue.

  • In most cases, a hospital or clinic can bill for the Locum Tenens provider services using the permanent doctors provider numbers.

Risk Management

  • The absence of one provider 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

  • Patient satisfaction

  • Referring physician satisfaction

  • Existing physician retention

  • Locum Tenens providers can be brought in to demonstrate the RIO of an incremental position prior to the new medical physician joining the ranks permanently.

Also, in most cases, a hospital or clinic can bill for the locum tenens Healthcare Provider services using the permanent doctors provider numbers. This also applies for a period of six months if a temporary Healthcare Provider 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 Healthcare Provider begins seeing patients before their Medicare/Medicaid provider number applications have been processed.
