As a new or soon-to-be D.C., you're preparing to start your own practice, find an associateship or work as an independent contractor. To help you along the way, NCMIC offers a wealth of tips and resources from practicing D.C.s and other experts.
With some purchases, you shop for the lowest price. But for others, features and overall value are important factors. This is the case with malpractice insurance.
Deciding how to practice should take into consideration your strengths and your economic situation. Getting started requires some honest answers. Here are some resources to help you get started.
Some Doctors of Chiropractic provide incentives to attract and retain patients—including offering discounts on services and waiving copayments and deductibles. Though exceptions may apply, routinely waiving copayments and deductibles may not be advisable.
How long should you remain in an associateship before you open your own practice? Six months? One year? Three years? The answer isn't always clear-cut because no two D.C.s will have the same goals, concerns or personal financial situations. However, there is an easy way to make the decision clearer.
Sometimes it's the little extras you receive from a company that provide real value and make all the savings difference. Take NCMIC's malpractice insurance plan for example. Why enjoy just one discount when NCMIC makes several available to you.
Question: As a doctor who likes to “go the extra mile” for my patients, I'm considering starting a house call program. What are the benefits and risks of this practice model?
When choosing a malpractice insurance plan, it's important to remember that the insurance company behind the plan is as important as the benefits and features of the plan.
Before accepting a job offer (see Negotiating a Job Offer), you should evaluate all the provisions of the offer in writing. Because the employment agreement can affect your career long term, it may be in your best interest to find an attorney to review the document and give you legal advice on its provisions before you sign on the dotted line.
When selecting malpractice insurance, one of the most important factors to consider is your defense team. After all, in the event of a malpractice allegation, you will rely on them from beginning to end.
You've proven yourself the best candidate during the interview process and have been offered a position with a chiropractic practice. Now comes the moment of truth and the time to ask yourself some tough questions. What if you don't like the offer they make? Is there a way to ask for a better compensation package without appearing greedy and alienating the hiring doctor?
