In your recent podcast with Dr. Shteynshlyuger, I wanted to correct his statement that the AMA "will not do anything to help" regarding unfair fees for EFT payments. I am an alternate delegate to the AMA for my state. Twice a year, delegations from all 50 states, national specialty societies, and the federal health services take time away from our busy practices and families to set policy and priorities for the AMA.

That being said, the AMA has been fighting against these unfair practices for several years. In 2021, the AMA along with the 50 state medical associations and 40 specialty societies, sent a letter to CMS asking the Biden administration to take action on these unfair practices. https://searchlf.ama-assn.org/letter/documentDownload?uri=%2Funstructured%2Fbinary%2Fletter%2FLETTERS%2F2021-10-14-Sign-on-Letter-re-EFT-Fees.pdf Furthermore, the AMA has a multitude of resources and guides on their website so that physicians and practices know their rights and how to navigate the system.

MtoM #141: Doctors Pay Off Student Loans Before Even Finishing Training and Finance 101: The Importance of Saving

10/23/2023
This Hospitalist and Cardiology Fellow couple paid off almost $400,000 of student loans before they were both out of training! They put their noses to the grindstone and put all of their money to their loans. They said they are naturally not big spenders but were not financially literate until a few years ago when they found WCI. Once they knew what they needed to do they wrote a financial plan, made a budget and reduced their spending even more. It took them less than 3 years to pay off all of their student loans. After the episode stick around for Finance 101 to talk about the importance of saving to grow your wealth. No more wading through dozens of books at the library, scrolling through hundreds of blog posts on dozens of blogs, or checking in daily with online forums trying to gain a financial education the way the hobbyists do.

WCI #337: Entrepreneurship and Angel Investing

10/19/2023
Today we are talking with Drs Niki Kennedy and Dan Pipitone of Arborhive. We are talking all about entrepreneurship and how doctors can use their expertise outside of the standard medical box. We also hit on the flip side of entrepreneurship and talk about angel investing. Angel investing certainly is not for everyone. You really need to have the time and the money to be successful in that space. If you want to try your hand at angel investing we recommend limiting it to small percentage of your portfolio. Thousands of doctors have trusted Pattern to help them understand and obtain disability insurance. They trust us because we know their time is valuable, and that doctors have more important things to do than worry about insurance. We gather quotes from the top 5 providers to deliver options unique to your situation. Here's how we do it: 1 - Request your quotes 2 - Compare your options in a short meeting with one of our expert sales advisors. 3 - Buy risk-free. So, request your quotes today at http://www.patternlife.com/wcipodcast Whether you’re buying plane tickets, paying for groceries, or filling up your car with gas, you’re probably using credit cards.
