2019 is around the corner. Are you compliance-ready?

December is the busiest month for many healthcare practices. Patients are anxious to use their FSA dollars before they expire or want to reap the benefits of their fully-paid deductible.  Plus, it’s flu season, and everybody’s sick. Join our compliance countdown as we prepare our clients’ practices for a fresh start to 2019.

Common reasons clients contact us this time of year.

  1. Maximize your 2018 business expenses to lessen your soon-to-be 2019 tax bill.
  2. This busy time has shone a light on some legal risks or deficiencies at your practice. You want them fixed!
  3. Start the new year with peace of mind about your legal and compliance obligations.

“I want to start a new business.”

This is a great time to get your new practice or healthcare business off the ground! We can prepare everything this year and get you ready for launch in the early new year. For a single-person business, that typically includes establishing your LLC or corporation, preparing your HIPAA policies and procedures, reviewing your current employment contract’s noncompetition or nonsolicitation language, and negotiating your commercial lease.
