Customer Case Study: Dr. Daniel R., DDS | Ortonville, MI

Dr. Daniel R. is a General Dentist running a successful practice out of Ortonville, MI.

As building-owners of 35 years, Dr. R. and his wife were growing weary of the constant demands involved in maintaining a property and being landlords. They also strived to grow the practice and expand, but were limited by the size and number of treatment rooms available in their 2,400 sq. ft. unit. After much deliberation, Dr. R. and his wife made the difficult decision to sell the building and relocate their practice.

The doctor had narrowed down the search to 3 locations in Clarkson, MI. Unsure of how to negotiate the details of their tenancy with the landlord, Dr. R. and his wife attended a seminar in Troy, MI presented by Cirrus Consulting Group on the topic of “Dental Office Lease Negotiations”. The seminar discussed the top $100,000 traps buried in a lease, and the harsh negative impact they can have on a practice’s future.

With this newfound knowledge, the doctor decided against using the services of his long-time corporate attorney for the negotiation, and instead sought out the expertise of Cirrus and their dental office lease negotiators. Dr. R. and his wife chose a location for their practice and were soon presented with the dental office lease for the space by the new landlord. Dr. R. was looking for the new lease to provide him with the following:

Cirrus conducted a thorough review and analysis of the lease, highlighting critical dates, risks and pitfalls. They uncovered a lack of death and disability protection in the lease, a significant issue for Dr. R. as a late-career dentist. The lease also permitted the landlord to move competing dentists into the building, and collect proceeds […]

Interim Acuity Modifier Payment to Primary Care Physicians

$40 million Interim Payout to Primary Care Physicians 

A one-time $40 million Interim Acuity Modifier payment has been distributed to eligible Ontario physicians in early 2014, as reflected on the January 2014 Remittance Advice.

As part of the 2012 Physician Services Agreement between the Ministry of Health and the Ontario Medical Association, the payout was administered to primary care physicians who roster acute patients.

The payment was calculated by multiplying:

The Acuity Premium was allocated by adding all eligible enrolment days across the province and dividing them by the available $40 million dollars.

Eligible Patients were those who were enrolled as of March 31st, 2013, and had received the top 20% of all primary care expenditures. For the physician to be eligible to receive the payment, they must have provided at least 50% of the expected Primary Care expenditure during the time the patient was enrolled. Visit the MOHLTC website for more information.

News Release: Cirrus Partners with Henry Schein Dental

Cirrus Consulting Group And Henry Schein Dental Announce Agreement To Support Dentists Across North America By Managing Their Office Lease Agreements

TORONTO, Canada & WEST ALLIS, Wis., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Cirrus Consulting Group, Inc. and Henry Schein Dental, the dental business of Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), today announced the signing of an agreement between the two organizations with the goal of bringing Cirrus’ unique, high-value, high-impact lease services and solutions specifically designed for health care practitioners to customers of Henry Schein Dental across Canada and the United States.

The dental office lease agreement is the foundation of the dental practice. It has widely been known to be a more important tool for dentists, specifically, than almost any other health care or non-health care tenant due to the significant investment required to set up and maintain a practice. In addition to this, the overwhelming majority of dentists across North America leave the industry at the end of their careers by selling their interest in their dental practice. The success of these transitions is often significantly affected by a well-structured lease agreement. It is imperative that dentists properly establish and strategically manage this part of their practice throughout their careers in order to effectively manage occupancy costs; minimize risk to the dentist and the dentist’s family as a result of this commercial agreement; and effectively maximize flexibilities through the various stages of their careers.

With a focus on expanding its solutions portfolio to support the dental industry, Henry Schein Dental has emerged as the clear market leader in supporting dentists to operate their practices more efficiently, and more effectively. Cirrus Consulting Group’s extensive track record of servicing the dental industry for 20 years fits perfectly into […]
