Tamara Felix, PhD, LMT who has made some extremely useful comments on this blog, and who I have interviewed in my Successful Therapists series, has a book I thought you should know about. It is “Medical Massage Therapy Billing Textbook for Oregon–CPT Codes, UCR Fees and the Law.”
Although the laws in the book are for Oregon, the laws in other states are the same, they just have different “numbers.” Besides, the first 2 chapters are on creating and building a successful, sustainable massage practice by writing, developing and implementing business, marketing and financial plans. Then in Chapter 4 she discusses at length the differences between wellcare clients and medical patients.
What I love about this, is that Tamara is extremely knowledgable about the laws and codes, but she is also a massage therapist and speaks our language.
And after talking at great lengths to Tamara, she sure knows what it takes to build a successful massage practice.
