- Feb 11, 2004Well w/ the population you mentioned, you definitely want to become a medicare/medicaid provider. Also start calling all the HMO's in your area and ask how you can become a participating provider. You want to build a referral basis with some doctors. One good tip-----get a cordless phone. If you're starting up, your employees might be yourself and/or one other person. You don't have time to stop what you're doing to run and get the phone, so you get a cordless and carry it w/ you. Try to get good used equipment (since it's cheaper) and try to get versatile equipment. You don't need a lot of fancy equipment.
