I started a new practice in Florida in 2015. I am a family physician. I started with registering and forming the corporation. An accountant can help you with that. In your case might be different since you are a NP. Make sure you have the start up money in your bank. I had an approval letter by Bank of America in NY. They never released the money. It has been a really hard year. Blue Cross /Blue shield of Florida took more than 1 year in approving me as " in network" could not collect in about 40% of my patients. Did I say that it has been a very hard year?? The best for 2017 to everyone here.

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.
