Hanger Discounts

I am an INDEPENDENT O & P provider. I am indipendant out of choice not need.

When I chose to be independent, I accepted both the risk and reward for

owning my own practice. I work in a competitive environment in many ways:

Costs – employees, materials, components, overhead, capitol equipment,

sales/marketing, and soooooo many others

Revenues – increased demographic needs/decreased reimbursements rates

Profit – ???

Bottom line is that we work in a free market environment, Just as our big

brother Hanger does. I have efficiency advantages, that Hanger does not have,

simply by being a small business. Hanger has efficiencies that I don’t enjoy

(vertical integration) simply by being a big player.

Reading the posts on this list that are bashing Hanger for running their

business as efficiently as they can, is pathetic. If an independent can’t

compete with Hanger in service or price, he has no business being in

business, and,over time, the free market WILL work him out of the equation.
