It should come as no surprise to anyone reading NP Business, that the most common question we receive is “How do I start a practice?”
As we get ready to close out 2023, I wanted to post a playlist of our most popular podcasts and blog posts about starting a practice. I’ll follow this up with a post about growing and operating a practice.
Ready to dive in?
The initial part of starting a practice involves research and planning. Of course, a big part is working with numbers s and building assumptions to determine if your plans will be feasible. Understanding what it costs to start and run a practice is crucial.
There are many moving parts to starting a business, and sometimes, because it’s often “just you” seeing patients, clinicians (not just NPs) will opt for the easiest structure. But that could be a huge mistake. Listen in as I tell you why there are TWO legal structures you want to stay away from.
This episode covers why you need an NPI-2, particularly if you’re just getting started, and those already in practice, but may not have set things up properly. It does not matter if you are billing insurance, or if you are a cash practice. This is essential information!
This list is far from complete. So I encourage you to scroll through our podcast archives and search the blog for starting a practice to find lots more information.
For readers who may be interested, NPBO™ will be running our live-online workshop, Essentials of Starting a Practice early in 2024. If you’d like to be on our list to learn more about Essentials, you can do so here.
