One aspect of my private patient business I don’t love (read – HATE) is billing.
While I normally collect client payments on the day of service, I do have several patients for whom I send monthly bills.
I start this off on a trial basis. If I am not paid in a timely way, I’ll go back to requiring payment on the day of service.I needed to find a way to create professional invoices and track payments… And I found it.
