Current insurance policies pay for an annual screening assessment for every patient for depression and alcohol misuse. On average, a screening battery is reimbursed 80% of the time.
With average reimbursement of $38 per assessment, a physician who screens 20 patients per day could stand to make an additional $760 per day. That equates to:
$3,800 per week
$15,200 per month
$182,400 per year
of previously unrealized, additional revenue!
