How do I know if my practice meets all the legal requirements out there?
I get this question a lot. The "kitchen sinker". Without a full and complete colonoscopy it is impossible to answer for sure. However, a great place to start is the new New York State business checklist (https://www.businessexpress.ny.gov/app/bw/startnewbusiness). I just used this handy dandy tool as a dentist "secret shopper", and the below checklist was generated for me. The Survey took me 4 minutes to complete, and out came a generated checklist addressing (i) corporate formation; (2) licensure; (3) quality of care; (4) prescribing authority and prescription monitoring program; (5) registering my x-ray machines, (6) workers comp requirements, and more. Pretty decent starter tool considering the price - Free! Of course ensuring compliance with this start tool is not a complete bill of clean health. Vendor relationships, corporate structure, billing and coding compliance, employment constructs - all play a major role in compliance. Each area should be addressed when conducting a full review.
