I am very interested in doing this no overhead private therapy
business. Several questions. What do I need to do to get a Medicare
#. I've always had a # in the places of business I have worked
previously but I'm not sure if I can use this same # for my own
business. How do I gain access to networks? What software do you
use to bill insurances electronically? Are there any other legalities
other than self-employed malpractice coverage I should be aware of?
Any tips and suggestions from anybody would be greatly appreciated.

> I'm in the beginning stages of starting my own business. No
overhead. I got my Medicare # and a Doc that likes me and willing to
send me some medicare pts. I see them in thier home and bring
everything I need, including a combo unit and all the trimmings.
After I see them , I do my own billing(electronicaly) and no
employees. I get to spend all my time with just ONE pt. and no
interruptions. Better quality care, more money and I'm my own boss.
Just something to think about. I also bill other insurances as well
and I'm up to 20 visits a week after only two weeks of starting. Good
