    Hi everyone

    I have recently been working an extra job for an agency that has me assessing individuals in private residences or long term care facilities, who have long term care insurance. The fee that they pay me is about 1/4 of what they actually bill. Since it is plenty of paperwork after the visit, plus gas etc..I thought why not do this as my own business. I do know other RNs who would love to make the extra cash. Plus the thought of being in charge of my own business sounds like a great challenge.

    I do love meeting the families and clients. I am very compassionate since I have been down that road before with some family members.
    Any one have any ideas or suggestions. Please let me know.

    I'd like to know how to do this directly for the insurance companies as well. Does anyone know?
    Thanks, Mary

    I have done this too but need more clients to network with. Can someone direct me to different corporations that need care managers / field assessors?

    I believe it's a conflict of interest for insurance companies to send nurses out to do this. They contract with companies to do this.

    In response to the message from Independent nurse assessor, I think what you might be interested in is being a Geriatric Care Manager. You can own your own business doing this.
    There is an association called the National Association of Geriatric Care Managers you might want to check out.
    Hope this helps!

    This interests me very much as well. Wish there were more nurses on this board with experience in this area that could provide some insight.
