Credit card policies catching on among practices
From Jan. 18, 2012:
As practices strive to improve collections and reduce costly no-shows, it's becoming more common for offices to require patients to provide a credit card number to secure an appointment. Though the practice is common among other service businesses, such policies may have patients initially bristling when they turn up at the doctor's office. The measure, however, is reasonable to protect practice revenue, according to consultants.
