PPO, or preferred provider organization, write-offs are discounts that healthcare providers offer to patients covered by PPO insurance plans. The providers agree to accept a reduced payment from the insurance company in exchange for being included in the PPO network and receiving a steady flow of patients.

PPO write-offs can be significant, and they can significantly impact the profitability of healthcare practices. Many providers struggle with managing their PPO write-offs and may not be aware of the various strategies that can help them reduce their losses.
