The most efficient option is for Rob to graduate from Rassmussen with a Medical Lab Associations Degree and we would start our own Medical Laboratory. (A $28,000, 18 month program). This way the lead tech (Rob) is reliable and will gain great knowledge by (re) taking science / intro medical classes as an adult, which will help with our Science Education Programs. We will find a reliable assistant as soon as financially possible.
Electronic Record Software
Our lead physician, Chrissy, and our hopefull assistant nurse, are well versed with this system and it can handle all necessary practice neeeds: Billing, Patient Accounts, etc. Price is based on number of physicians, @ $3,500 per year.

February 2023 Notes:
Medicare Cuts and Private Practices outlook:
- Reimbursement Struggles
- 2% cut in Medicare
- “PCPs (primary care physicians) are being asked to take on greater risk and invest in and spend more time on care management planning, all in an increasingly complex health ecosystem,” says Bales. “To manage this risk, physicians will need to leverage new technology. In addition, PCPs are seeing either larger networks, systems or new businesses pull demand for higher reimbursement services, and they will likely continue to feel that pressure.”
Top Administrative Challenges:
- Prior Authorization administrator. We need a “prior authorization champion” to submit submit prior authorizations to payers.
- Keep detailed notes for each patient
- Learn what the payers want
- Be persistent
- Recruit the patient
- Escalate, escalate, escalate.
