For those of you who own your own practice or have some say in it, how often do
you update your fee schedule?
Are there any indexes you use for your increases?

My fee schedule gets modified any time someone actually pays me 100% of my charges.

Has anybody ever used a professional to try and negotiate with your payers? Any luck?
