COVID-19 Physician Income

HSG’s own Dr. Terry Mcwilliams was recently interviewed by Leigh Page and quoted in the recent Medscape online article COVID-19 and Physician Income: Some Are Suffering While Others Are Not.

Dr. McWilliams is quoted as saying “all of us are wondering what’s going to happen next, and almost everything is speculation” as it relates to the current COVID-19 Pandemic and it’s impact on physician income.

Additionally, as it relates to accounts receivable and the current situation, Dr. McWilliams states “A lot of the A/R [accounts receivables] for practices come within 30 days, and very little comes in after 90 days… So private practices are reaching the point where A/R will start to dwindle and they will start feeling the decline in new claims submissions.”
