585 Tips for LNCs for a DME Observation Practice – Silvia Aninye

Medical Examinations

For an LNC, working as an observer at a defense medical exam (DME) can provide a lucrative income. It particularly offers the chance to hire other LNCs and run a large-scale business.

Silvia Aninye, who has been doing DME work for 4 years, has a large number of subcontractors and a case load in the realm of 100 cases and sometimes more per month. She has become proficient in her acquisition of clients and in this podcast, shares what she’s learned.

She advises that you be wary of the big firm that offers 50-100 cases per month. The danger is that you will relax your marketing efforts. You need to know that big firms are always trying to cut costs, and you could find yourself replaced by an in-house LNC.

She strongly advises against cold calls and generic email blasts. Instead, she recommends attending events for lawyers and doing enough research on firms or individuals to design a personalized email message.

In choosing a fee structure, she suggests doing research by using a survey to learn about DME rates in your area. It’s also crucial to make it clear exactly what the attorney will get for their money. Offering a little more than your competition can make the sale.

While many of these principles echo good marketing practice, Silvia’s tailoring of them into a format for the DME nurse makes this a unique and valuable podcast.
