I am looking into doing this type of work. I would greatly appreciate any advice you could give. How do you go about it legally? Do you have pt's sign a waiver of some sort? I have malpractice insurance that insures me to work as an independent contractor, but I'm not sure how it would cover me when working directly for a pt.How should I bill? Do I need to have a business lic. in order to get started?I suppose I do as I will need to be responsible for my own tax withholding and work comp.?Is there anyone else out there that is doing private duty work??I am sick of working for the system and want to work for my patients directly.
