Duck… Duck…. Goose!!  Don’t Get Goosed by the Rules!

Duck Duck Goose

In the game Duck, Duck, Goose, you never know when you’re going to get picked, who’s going to pick you, or how fast you’ll have to run! You can probably remember sitting in the circle yourself, being nervous for what will happen next and ready to jump to your feet and make a run for it at any given moment. 

No matter the type or style of practice we have, we find ourselves in much the same scenario when it comes to not being sure when or which governing, or auditing-type entity may choose us. Will we be prepared? Will we be able to quickly jump to action and respond? Will we know what to do? Are we paying attention and feeling confident? Cash-based, accepting insurance, or turning away Medicare patients—the risks are still real. Just like the children’s game, every duck is different. Some are fast, some slow, some more intimidating than others and there are those that we hope to avoid altogether. And when you’re the goose, you’d better be ready! read more
