Expert help for a smooth transition

While the FHO structure is the most popular payment model within family medicine, it can also be the most complicated. With DoctorCare’s expertise, you can transition into an existing practice with fewer growing pains and a faster ramp-up time than starting your own practice. We will walk you through some of the key questions and considerations you should have when evaluating whether to start a practice:

  • What are you prepared to spend to step into a “full” medical practice immediately?
  • Are you prepared to add your name to an existing office lease agreement, or sign a new one?
  • What is the expense reimbursement structure at the office you are looking to join?
  • Is it a solo or group office?
  • How familiar are you with the administrative aspects of managing a FHO practice and roster?
  • How big is the group and where are the locations?
  • What partnership and group governance agreements are currently in place?
