Could anyone share with me how their practice pays an associate in respect of capitation patients. By this I mean what does the associate receive for their own capitation patients and those patients they see registered to another clinician in the practice.
We make an "interschedule adjustment" the treating dentist charges the colleague normal private fees for work provided, we usually check with the dentist with whom the patient is registered before we make the payment. We also try whenever possible, never to book each others patients when on a capitation scheme. The amount paid to the practice is added to the dentists income and calculated as all other income at 45% or whatever the agreement %.
