If you implement a cash-based out-of-network or hybrid model, more of the cost of care will fall on your patients. If most of your patients come to your current practice because you are in-network, they may leave your practice as a result of the cost. Of course, patients choose their health care providers for reasons other than costs. It is your challenge to determine whether you can attract a sufficient number of patients to your practice as an out-of-network provider.
