Practice owners

As a practice owner you benefit from membership and insurance fees that are based on the full time equivalent (FTE) clinical staff that you have. For example, if you have one audiologist who works three days a week and another that works two days a week, you have one FTE. That means you pay for one FTE, not two people.
