FreedomDoc Direct Care Startup

Our startup service sets us apart from the competition and sets your practice up for success.

Starting any business is hard work. There are so many variables and missteps are costly, in terms of time and money.

Many physicians have the skills to run an existing successful business but don’t have expertise in all it takes to get a business up and running.

When you work with us, we give you an established system – an entire method of doing business. Having a proven system already in place eliminates the guesswork and errors a common practice owner would normally face.

Since there is an already established system in place, there is a higher likelihood of success. If you invest in a proven FreedomDoc program and follow the system that we have put in place, you should be on your way to running a successful practice.

Our team will train you to run your practice the same way our other successful locations are run. It will ensure that you are running your practice efficiently, and will help to eliminate any common mistakes a new practice owner usually faces.

We have your new direct care practice up and running is as little as 90 days.

Our practices have access to immersive training, ongoing peer-to-peer collaboration, best-in-class software, proven best practices and more to help their practices grow and prosper. In short, the value is realized as we help physicians like you become the go-to for families seeking care.

Hybrid practices might sound like an easier way to get started but that is simply not true. When operating a hybrid practice, a physician maintains expensive staff, facilities, and overhead expenses. You must maintain a billing company and continue to code comprehensively. You are not letting go of any hassles or headaches that led you to direct care in the first place!

Hybrid practices struggle with Medicare reporting and tracking insurance contracts. They cannot provide a high level of service to their direct care patients because they are still beholden to seeing a massive amount of patients to support the high cost of the insurance practice. Running both models is also a legal nightmare.

With Medicare, there are still too many landmines to step on and run afoul of government regulations that change with the stroke of a bureaucrats pen.

For simplicity and to keep your sanity, when you go into direct care, go all in. Your practice will grow faster and you’ll be able to take care of any patient that walks through your door.

Physicians that try to do this by themselves oftentimes struggle with an overwhelming workload. They take too long as the project drifts. Cash is thrown away on unneeded purchases and delays. Online checklists tell you what to do, they don’t tell you how to do it, why to do it, or who to call with questions. They take months, even years to open, all while letting money slip away. It breaks our hearts when we get a call from a physician who tried to do it all themselves – who didn’t ask for help until it was too late. Don’t let that be you.

Freedom Healthworks is one of the most affordable direct care startup programs in the country with tremendous earning potential. Our standardized business model substantially lessens the financial risks to practice ownership. This makes becoming a FreedomDoc an accessible and proven route for physicians who want take control of their future in a growing care model that makes a real difference in people’s lives.

The total initial investment to open your new FreedomDoc practice averages from $45,000 in startup, office, systems, and other business costs. Our low entry cost is the result of 35 years of combined expertise in helping our physicians grow thriving practices in their communities.
