More and more I am getting discs with 2000 to 3000 pages to print. It is too hard to read records on a computer. What can I charge and what code do i use.
Is it still only $.10 per page. To print 2250 pages took my staff an hour and a half.
Thank you

Funny how people see things differently. I prefer PDF on CD or thumb drive. With that I can see better than on paper, enlarge, enhance, cut, paste, and OCR the whole file. Way easier to use parts of the file in the report. You can put PDF file on one computer to read, and edit report or voice transcribe on a second computer. Way easier than paper to me, plus at the end just shred the one CD or securely delete the PDF file, rather than having to shred 3000 pages.

Can't you demand paper? I still have QMEs do that and I oblige. In fact, my staff always calls to see what the QME prefers.

I like electronic too, it is a modern, large volume. Sometimes the physical ones are easier to read if it is old, handwritten notes and the scans have a low resolution. But that is more and more rare.
