I had an interview recently with an independent vascular access company. I assume this would make me an independent contractor, as taxes are not taken out of monthly pay and a 1099 is issued. Does anyone have any experience in this area? I have not been able to find any recent threads on the topic. What were your taxes/ record keeping/business expenses like? When you factor in wear and tear, insurance, car payments, and gas, was the pay worth it? Do you carry malpractice insurance? Is there supplemental reading/training material you would recommend? Would you recommend it as a career? This is completely different than anything I have ever done, as I have always had employer offered benefits. Any input is appreciated!
