Default How to Start an Alternative Healthcare Business

An interesting article from SBA:

Despite the current state of the economy, not all industries are struggling. In fact, some industries are experiencing significant growth - the alternative healthcare business is one of them. From chiropractors to naturopaths and acupuncturists, alternative treatments are gaining wider acceptance from both the public and insurance companies alike.

Writing in SmallBizTrends recently, Rieva Lesonsky, pinpointed alternative providers as one of a few growth industries to watch in the coming years. According to Lesonsky, the �industry�s revenue is forecast to grow by 4.3 percent annually for the next five years, reaching $14.4 billion by 2016.�

If you�re interested in starting an alternative or complementary healthcare business, here are some steps that will help you on your way and ensure you are properly complying with license, permit, and other regulatory requirements.

It would also be wise to read the state legislation pertaining to licesure in your individual state. Before you train for a profession make sure it is legal in your state and that the state grants you rights to fully practice all that you know.

For example. In Idaho licensed natuopathic medical doctors cannot do IV work. In most other states they are licensed in they can.

On the other hand in Idaho, chiropractors can legally do IV work. In most other states they cannot.

There is nothing more frustrating than to be trained in a profession and not be legally permitted to use your skills.

In Idaho many NMDs are also chiropractors so that they can fully function in their profession. Its a shame to force someone into chiropractic when all they really want to do if be an NMD with full ability to practice their art.

Quite a few states have convoluted laws designed to trip you up, it seems.
