  • Tips for getting started taking insurance as a private practice dietitian

  • How to make the application process go smoothly
  • What to do if you need help getting your practice off the ground

Pam’s First Steps for Taking Insurance:

  • Rent a temporary or permanent office space where you can actually see patients
  • Decide on a business name, purchase a website with the name you want to use if you are ready
  • Consider what type of business form you would like to be (e.g. LLC) and register with Secretary of State
  • Get a Tax Identification Number from the IRS
  • Get professional liability insurance through the AND website
