Private Practice at HealthSouth: Physicians Maintain Their Independence

At HealthSouth, setting up a private practice may be easier than you think!  Physiatrists will be 100% independent and will establish a private practice to include a caseload of medically complex inpatient rehabilitation patients and an outpatient rehabilitation practice if he or she chooses.  The physiatrist will set up a billing company that will handle and retain all billing and collections as well as all other responsibilities in running and maintaining a private practice.  HealthSouth does not take a cut or percentage of physician billing.
