For medical professionals, clinics, and doctor's offices, medical equipment leasing provides the best answer to getting the equipment you need to best serve the needs of your patients. Medical equipment leasing is the most popular way that most modern facilities have to get the equipment they need now, while paying monthly payments for the use of the equipment - usually with an option to buy if the decision is made to do so.
An obvious advantage to leasing the medical equipment that is required by your facility is cost concerns. Some medical equipment can cost well over $100,000, as you are most likely aware. By leasing as opposed to buying the medical equipment that you need, you aren't putting out a large amount of money at once, which frees up the capital you have to invest in your facilities for other purposes. Most companies that lease medical equipment also offer the option to buy the equipment anytime during the lease - or even at the end of the leasing term if you choose to do so. This allows you to see if the equipment is beneficial to your bottom line before making a huge financial commitment.
One of the greatest benefits that medical equipment leasing can provide is giving you the ability to maintain state-of-the-art equipment for optimum patient care. Having the best equipment and latest technology not only improves patient care, it can also improve your profit. In the absence of the appropriate equipment, your facility most likely loses quite a bit of revenue when you must refer patients to better equipped facilities and other locations that have the diagnostic tools at their disposal for tests that you could have done - if you had the right equipment. Whether its magnetic resonance imaging equipment, X-ray equipment, modern lab equipment, or just basic examination equipment - having advanced diagnostic and medical equipment at your disposal makes your facilities more of a one-stop medical facility - which patients find convenient. What's more - when a piece of equipment become obsolete and is replaced by newer technology, you are not stuck with equipment that you cannot use or even resell.
Medical equipment leasing usually requires no down payment, and often features the option to purchase the equipment for a price that reflects the remaining value (minus depreciation) of the equipment at the end of the lease. There is no need to put up collateral of any kind, in most instances, to begin leasing the medical equipment that you need today.
Keep in mind that most of the expense that you will bear to lease the medical equipment that you need is one hundred percent tax deductible under a true lease structure. This means that the equipment can actually pay for itself by causing you to owe less tax when you file each year. In addition, if you choose to purchase the equipment, you can deduct the amount of depreciation and the interest paid on your lease to own medical equipment.
