Keeping Wisconsin Safe: Why it’s the Best Place to Practice Medicine

There’s a reason Wisconsin is one of the safest places to practice medicine; it’s long been a haven for affordable medical professional liability (MPL) insurance. Which, among many other reasons, also makes it a great state to be a patient in. But now, as the rest of the country feels the impact of increased MPL premiums, it may only be a matter of time before Wisconsin physicians see similar increases.

Here’s a recent posting offering advice about having a dedicated financial planner:
“I wish I had a dedicated financial planner involved earlier in my career. I went with a default planner provided by employer’s 403b or 501K plan. They often didn’t understand the nuances of being a physician. And when changing jobs, this would be problematic as there would be a new plan and they were often not helpful rolling over old plans. Finally having a dedicated financial planner outside of my employer really helped to better make my money work for me.”
