Taking Health Care Volatility into Account
Health care’s unpredictable, often volatile, nature complicates financial planning – especially when a couple’s or family’s entire income is tied to the industry. One day it looks like you are on track to an early retirement, and the next day it looks like you’ll be seeing patients well into your golden years.
How can you plan for retirement when you face an unpredictable future? Modeling “what if” scenarios helps minimize risk even when you don’t have all the answers. Physicians gain confidence in their future when they feel prepared for what may be looming on the horizon.
Here are some of the questions we can help you answer:
- Can your retirement plan weather whatever happens in the industry?
- Are your tax-efficient investment strategies and risk management tools doing all they can to minimize your tax burden?
- Are you deferring income by contributing to qualified retirement plans?
- Will your current investments produce the income you need when you need it?
- Have you taken proper steps to protect your hard-earned assets from potential litigation – both personal and professional?
- Do you have adequate coverage to insure against disability and other financially negative life events?
Financial planning against the backdrop of the highly regulated health care industry presents a unique set of challenges. Because regulations can change rapidly, the steps you took last year aren’t likely to be as effective this year. Having an experienced professional help guide you through the changes can be critical to your success.
