Hi All,

I have a question about the sequence of things to do:

I'm credentialed to an existing group, and I'll leave to create my own practice in 1.5 months. When I give them notice, I'll want to begin talking to insurance companies to change my address & tax ID.

However, I haven't formed a corporation yet, but I plan to start now.

The issue is that I am still in the process of leasing a place, so I don't know my business address.

I want to have my corporation's tax ID ready sooner so that I can start insurance re-credentialing sooner.

There is a way to just use my individual name as a sole proprietorship, but I think using a Professional Corporation with S-Corp election in California has its benefit.

My key question to you all is:

Will it work if I rent a UPS business mailbox, use that address to apply for a CA Professional Corporation? Then, later on when I get the lease, I reassign the business address to my leased office.

Will it work?-------------------------------------------

I started in WA on a shoestring also.  Used this group years ago to get great advise and guidance.  It took me about 40 hours in one week to sit down and walk thru everything with finding location, registeringthe business, and all the other stuff I had to do to apply to get contracts and stuff, but really it took about 3 months to finish it.

Hello all,

Any advice for logistics in starting a new primary care practice (in Colorado)? I was referred to your group a few years ago by another NP.

How long does credentialing take (most of my patients are Medicaid)? I am assuming I need to start credentialing once I have a physical space-is this correct? Are virtual offices a good idea-and will I have issues with credentialing if I use a virtual office? Do you bill yourself (or hire a biller)? 

I also wanted to thank the group for your inclusivity, as we all want to provide excellent care to our patients.
