Thanks to all who commented on my last post...Got another question: What are you all doing about the rising cost of gold? We have always had a 30% mark-up using our 75%high noble gold. It was comparable...See more with the other labs in town. We are now in need of more gold and if we mark-up at the cost we have to pay today, we will be 25% higher than before. Although the doctors say that cost is not a consideration compared to quality, they are questioning why our fees are higher than the lab down the road....
According to LMT’s 2012 Fee Survey, 42% of laboratories have more than one fee schedule.
Here are the top three reasons why: (1) 48% Lower fee for high-volume clients; (2) 39% Fees for “high-end” restorations are higher than ones for conventional ones; (3) 39% Fees for “economy” restorations are lower than those for conventional ones
