I’m a pain management PA with 4+ years experience in interventional pain private practices. Currently in the process of opening my Pain Practice in New York City area.
Looking for Supervising Physician for the practice. Will also receive percent ownership in practice and can perform the neuro-axial procedures if desired. I’m open to various arrangements, depending on what physician prefers.
Please message if interested to associate and collaborate.
I called an accountant referred from a friend (who does not work in the medical field) and the CPA quoted me at ~700/month!! Wayy too much for my blood. Is this the going rate for having a good CPA on board? I've been working as a 1099 independent contractor over the past year and would like to have an accountant on board to help maximize my deductions.
Anyone with tips to find someone/something more affordable?
Anyone know of a good place to get a part-time (not locum tenens) job? My current employer is willing to switch me from full-time to part-time if I do find another job, just to break it up and prevent burn-out. I've always wanted to do something like this but i feel like part-time jobs are few and far between.
I just accepted a new position as a 1099 independent contractor for a home-visit practice where I earn about $50/visit. I will be mostly mobile, traveling to private residences, ALF's, nursing homes, etc.
My question is what are some of the things I need to keep track of for the 2018 year? I have researched online and found many things that independent contractors can use for tax deductions, but nothing specific for medical providers and physician assistants, in particular. Some of the obvious ones to me are:
1. Car Mileage - I plan on keeping record of every route I take at work
2. Supplies - things that the practice may not provide for that I would need for work
3. CME - i'm assuming any type of conferences I plan on doing this year
I have a credit card designated for these purchases. Things I am unsure about:
A. Gas for car - I plan on keeping track of when I fill up; does this count?
B. Car payment - one of my cars is paid off, my other one (which I won't be using majority of the time) still has payments on it but my wife drives it. Can I write these payments off as an expense?
C. Meals at work - there will be times where I will be eating on the go; I will have a Medical Assistant and I'm assuming we will be discussing [some] work at our lunch. Can I deduct this as an expense?
D. Licensing/Professional Organizations - Do these payments count towards deductions? What about a DEA license?
Any other things that I have not thought of? I'm new to the 1099 game but I kind of like the idea. Also, my wife is a W2 employee, does that complicate things?
I currently work locum tenens with CompHealth. I am a W2 employee and receive benefits, including health insurance, through them. I would like to branch out and work with other companies as an independent contractor, but I am absolutely bewildered by obtaining health insurance on my own. From what I've researched, 'Obamacare' is linked to the states. I am a resident of Texas, so I can't imagine how it does me any good to only be able to see providers in Texas when I'm on assignment in Arizona! Do people who take this option count on just seeing their PCP when they are home and otherwise use their health insurance for emergency only while they are on assignment? Are there plans that aren't state-linked?
Cobra is outrageous, don't suggest it.
I am not married, so spouse insurance is not an option.
What are others doing to tackle this problem? What other companies offer a health insurance option?
