Actually, that's not entirely true.
I have a successful mobile ultrasound business that I started about a year and a half ago.
You and the Doc's can still make money if you set your business up correctly.
Build a good product and sell it. Show a Doc a legal profit with no upfront costs...

Hello Ken, I am also thinking of opening my own mobile ultrasound business. My question is did you go through a mobile ultrasound consulting company to learn about the business of mobile ultrasound? I just need a good starting point/resource.

Be VERY careful! The STARK law penalty for setting it up incorrectly is $25,000 per incidence and 5 years in prison for each incidence. Basically this prevents you from billing on a per patient basis - stick with companies that are both familiar with Stark, but also who have sound and current legal advise regarding safe - harbor laws etc. With 1600 additional Obama regulators . . . its not worth jeopardizing your career. The fact that someone else does it . . . doesn't mean they are doing it correctly or meet the legal requirements. Just sayin . . .

Please elaborate on how Stark law prohibits or inhibits one's business of mobile ultrasound. I am interested on the business idea, however to my understanding, there is a huge insurance conflict of interest for those doing work in outpatient areas. I suppose it's due to a lack of accountability behind the responsibility; in a hospital a tech simply performs scans for a radiologist to interpret, but in this business model the techs carry along a lot of the conflict of interest of advice, diagnosis and interpretation of the scans which could cause legal issues, potentially malpractice. I never even thought of something to the effect of how a patient is billed or when the health provider was paid would become an issue.. Just my thoughts, please discuss further.

Interesting... Seems as if you've been burned before. Did you not do your homework?

We started our mobile ultrasound business a few years ago. We went through a company to help us. There are a lot of regulations and compliance issues that arise, so definitely structure your company correctly so that you are in compliance. There are many health care attorneys out there as well as consulting companies. We went through www.mymobileultrasoundbusiness.com but do your own research and choose someone or a company that works best for you.
