Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Wall Street Journal:

Small start-up medical-billing services like yours often have trouble getting doctors to take them seriously, and here’s why: Health-care billing, as you know, is an extremely complex task with government regulations and compliance rules that constantly change. Even small billing errors can lead to health-care providers being underpaid, or government audits and hefty fines — things most doctors aren’t willing to risk.

It doesn’t help that work-at-home schemes involving medical-billing training courses have surfaced in recent years, brushing a bad reputation on the industry.

So health-care providers looking to outsource their billing often gravitate toward more-established services referred to them by others. About a third of all physicians use an outside-billing service, says Brad Lund, executive director of the Healthcare Billing and Management Association, a trade group.

The uphill battle is proving your service is reliable and that you stay abreast of the ever-mounting regulations and compliance rules.
