For financial advisors looking for business opportunities, this is the right time to mine the treasures in the medical market," says Vicki Rackner MD, President of Targeting Doctors. "ObamaCare is the source of acute financial pain for physicians; it's also an opportunity for financial advisors who want to work with physician clients." 

Rackner points out the following statistics:

  • Doctors make up 9 of the top 10 earners in the US.
  • Only half of physicians and dentists currently work with financial advisors.
  • Half of physicians are behind where they would like to be in retirement planning.

For practicing physicians, the financial pain of ObamaCare includes:

  • Higher taxes. 
  • The costs of building the infrastructure that will lead to greater healthcare efficiencies, like converting to electronic medical records, hiring new staff to address new administrative demands and aligning with new compliance requirements.
  • Rising costs of goods and services as businesses address their own higher tax bills.
  • Lower professional fees. The 24% Medicare fee reduction that was averted this year will become reality soon. As Medicare goes, so, too, go the rest of the insurance fee schedules.

Physicians want a plan to help them achieve the personal, professional and financial goals that drew them to a career in medicine. 

Rackner says, "Financial advisor are winning new physician clients. If you want to work in the medical market, seize the moment."
