CLIENT TERMINATION POLICY AND PROCEDURE
I. Faith Pediatric has the right to “terminate” a client for the following reasons:
1. Profitability. On the surface, this appears to be common sense. However, no one likes to turn away a customer, and depending on the financial stability of your business, sometimes it can be several years before we make the determination that a customer is not profitable. In addition, this analysis can be complicated, as some customers may be “lossleaders” whose value is not directly connected to their bottom line.
2. Alignment. Businesses evolve and sometimes we simply don’t provide —or at least specialize in — the areas that certain clients need. It’s important to be honest with our clients and ourselves when something is simply not the right fit for our business. Otherwise, these customers will end up in category 1 or 4.
3. Culture. In our company, culture is a priority. We treat our employees and clients with respect and integrity. As such, we expect the same from those with whom we do business. This is not to say that sometimes things go wrong and people get upset. This is understandable and we are empathetic. But, some people are simply unkind and disrespectful by nature. Any client who is chronically abusive to you or your staff is usually not worth it in the end.
4. Exposure. Finally, there are clients who create a larger exposure for your business than they generate in revenue. If not addressed appropriately, clients from any of the above three categories can fall into this category. Furthermore, there are a number of specific warning signs that can signify a client exposure that should be evaluated (see sidebar).
Additional details to terminate difficult clients:
· Clients not paying your invoices on time
· Clients not taking your advice
· Clients that consistently cause stress in your office
· Clients that make threats
· Clients that fail to provide paperwork on a timely basis
· Clients that you do not trust
· Clients that do not understand the services you are rendering
· Clients that do not appreciate your expertise
· Clients that challenge the need for documentation
· Clients that are a bad fit for your business model
· Clients that test your bottom line
II. Documentation must be provided and meeting set up with owner of company, operations manager, therapists and client/client’s parents to inform family they have been “fired” from company
III. FPR will see client for 30 days to give ample time for family and client to find services elsewhere
IV. FPR will provide list of clinics within 30 mile radius to help family/client transfer to new clinic
