Unplug Your Practice and Eliminate Vision Plans


Instructor: Steve Alexander
Webinar: 1 hour


We are ecstatic to have Steve Alexander, a well-known consultant who has made a flourishing career out of ridding practices of VCP reliance on stage for the first time where he will give a lecture on eliminating VCPs for practice growth and profitability.

Most practice owners believe that vision plans are the lifeblood for making their bottom line and can't imagine how their practice could thrive without these vision plans. However, eliminating vision plans not only reduces stress and frustration from poor reimbursement, it can actually create a more profitable practice, which in turn leads to growth. In this lecture, Steve Alexander outlines a blueprint on how to unplug from the bondage of greedy vision plans, and redirect your practice into true independence and financial prosperity.
