20/20 Money Episode #289 – Evaluating VCPs in your practice to determine which ones to cut with Dr. Adam Ramsey, OD

May 20, 2024

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Adam Ramsey, OD. 

Adam joins me back on the show to continue the conversation that we teased at the end of our first conversation which was how Adam evaluated the decision to go out of network with a variety of VCPs that he was taking in his practice. He shares how he came to the realization that he needed to do it, how he evaluated the different 3rd party payors to determine which ones to punt and which ones to keep, how he benchmarked success in the process, what it meant to his practice’s profitability, and the importance of being intentional and purposeful in practice ownership and what that’s meant to him and his business. He also talks about a passionate topic that he shared in a LinkedIn post. You can tell Adam’s extremely passionate about the profession of optometry and wants to see private practices succeed and for ODs to become more knowledgeable about the business of optometry and I was happy to provide the platform for him to share his lessons and journey.
