Frequently Asked Questions

Why PPS?

The complexity and time needed in starting a practice should not be underestimated and every practice is different and may require a slightly different approach.  We offer a wide variety of services and packages to fit every budget without compromising the end goal.  Our years of experience and hundreds of happy clients should give you confidence in our ability to take your idea and turn it into reality. 

Who do we help?

There are actually very few practice types that we cannot or have not helped.  Our practice start-up services are used by physicians, mid-level providers, therapists, labs and behavioral health providers across the country.  Whether they need help with just credentialing or are looking for someone to take overall start-up responsibilities, we are their solution.  As part of our practice start-up services, our team of accounting & legal professionals will help you set up your practice in the most tax efficient and compliant manner.  

How much does it cost?

Start up costs for our services range from a low of $2,500 to more than $20,000 depending on the level of service needed.  It is our goal to create a package that works for each of our clients as needs and budgets are not created equal.  It’s important for us to note that the level of your initial investment is directly correlated to the level of return you can expect over the first 2 years. Your foundation is absolutely critical and it’s imperative that you refrain from cutting corners when it comes to certain areas.  Buying used equipment or a smaller office initially is a much wiser choice than selecting the wrong credentialing, billing, marketing or EHR vendor.  We understand that budgets are often stretched when opening a practice and we are all about saving money.

How long does it take?

The recommended amount of time required to start a practice is approximately 150-180 days.  This may seem like a long time but there are so many variables and you want to be sure you give yourself enough time for the unexpected.  However, we understand that the luxury of time may not always be available and we can work with you to figure out a solution to time-sensitive start-ups .  If you have questions relating to how long something takes, it is best to send us an email with the specifics of what you are needing and we will do our best to set accurate expectations in terms of time/costs.  If you are already working under a group in the same area, it is possible that we can set you up under your new company in much less time.
