SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi Everyone, I am thinking about slowly starting to join a private practice and am going to meet with the the CEO and president of the group. About 20 psychiatrists (roughly) many part time who have other jobs as well and its basically them taking a large chunk of billing (30%) in return for credentialing, billing, insurance, secretarial work and office space. They also will provide the patients to a slight degree although this is not clear yet. Initially I would only be working 2 half days a week. I plan to add saturdays and then get out of dodge with respect to inpatient or have inpatient as only a backup option. What questions should I ask? Based on some things I already know I plan to ask about EMR or lack thereof. How much of billing is recovered? Support when I am not there and I work about 30 hours a week, all during the day, inpatient. Reimbursement rates for different insurance plans...do they take medicare? I know they don't take medicaid. Contract issues like non compete clauses etc. Any words of advice or would anyone expound on the questions.
