Management service organizations (MSOs) provide a range of administrative and managerial services to doctors. With the trend in practice ownership changing from ownership to employees, more people will be interacting with MSOs, either as an organization providing administrative services for your practice or as a private equity buyout that acquires your practice and you take more of an employee role. In this episode we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of an MSO to help you decide if this move is right for your practice. We also answer listener questions about what to do if you are denied life insurance, whether you should do Mega Roth IRA or tax deferred contributions, where to put your REITs, and purchasing company stock.
