Online coupons may give rise to fee splitting concerns
Groupon and Living Social, two deal of-the-day website companies that feature discounted gift certificates, are currently working with dentists across the United States to provide coupons to patients. These “daily deal” coupon sites are becoming increasingly more popular amongst dentists for their ability to bring in new patients and attract attention among existing patients. In fact, in 2010 Groupon reported that 15% of the “daily deals” the company offered were for health care services.
