Debt Management | MIPS Indemnity Insurance

Debt Management

Whether it’s your own personal finance or that of your clinic/practice, people and businesses will almost always acquire a loan, and thus debt, at some point. Most individuals will acquire a loan for a property in their lives and almost all practice assets, such as an x-ray machine or autoclave, can be financed through asset finance arrangements. The key difference between success and failure is understanding good debt vs bad debt and in both cases, establishing a plan so that you can reduce debt and achieve growth and income, or in the case of a business, profits. The intention of this module is to help you to acquire and manage your debt intelligently and empower you to achieve financial success.
