I will be a newly licensed RN in NY soon. I have several friends and family members that are experienced RN's. We were looking for some input on various business ideas.
"Concerige?" Nursing (specifically, we thought of providing services to ambulatory surgery or ED patients who were recently discharged and might need a little follow-up care, patient teaching, help with ADL's, etc.) I looked at the the Medicare/Medicaid info but it doesn't seem like they would pay for a such a service. I'm guessing private insurance wouldn't either, so it would have to be private-pay patients?
Private Duty....as above, it seems that in NY you can only be paid with an NPI number if an agency can't or doesn't want to take the patient?
Health coaching/teaching.....I've seen Dr's offices advertise these services (often provided by an RN), and was told that they are able to be reimbursed for them. Could a "regular' RN, working independently, do so as well?
Telephone Triage.....perhaps contracting with an MD's office to provide services to their patients? and having an urgent care center to refer to?
Thank you all for your input!!
