IMAGINE: What if you could earn an extra $50.00 to a $100.00 on every pair of glasses you sold? What if a local hospital organization invited a group of doctors you belonged to, to provide the medical eyecare for its network of patients? What if you could really understand your chair time cost and have enough choice of plans your own organization was selling to drop plans that do not pay you well enough? Would it get you off the treadmill of running faster and faster for less and less fees?
DON’T IMAGINE, it is reality taking shape as teams of independent volunteer OD’s all across America are uniting into state IPAs that are coops owned by the state’s OD’s and no one else. Even better they are working with other OD’s across America that have created this success, such as the IPA’s in Kansas and nearby states.
THE PHENOMENAL SIGN OF SUCCESS is the recent beginning of the refusal of OD internet media to allow these IPA’s a voice on their web sites! They might just be concerned about losing advertising dollars from EyeMed, VSP, VS, and others that pay their way and see organized private practice optometry as a power they fear! What Could Be More Exciting! It means that Private Practice OD’s are succeeding!
