  1. If you are. Private contractor you ABSOLUTELY NEED TO INCORPORATE! Get a lawyer/ CPA as your first step. As a pvt contractor you should no accept anything less than $200 per hour I would guess. I was a contractor back in the 90s and was getting $100 per hour then. The reason they want you as a contractor is so they don’t have to pay all the taxes etc. They want you to pay them. I would walk, no make that run away as fast as you can.
  2. “The market for PAs in this region of the country (New England) is strong. Some major hospital networks seem to prefer NPs while others seem to prefer PAs.“ I can certainly second that I’m seeing more and more that places that have traditionally have been NP territory switching over to PAs
  3. Rumors of the demise of the PA profession have been circulating as long as the profession has been in existence. It is never going to happen.
  4. There is this law called the American With Disabilities Act. The law prevents any employer from refusing employment to someone with a disability as long as they are physically able to carry out the duties of the job. In addition employers are required to make “reasonable accommodations“ for anybody that has a disability. Employees are not allowed to ask you about your disability I have seen several providers with all kinds of disabilities including cerebral palsy, being wheelchair-bound, being an author extremity amputee so I can’t see any reason why employer could get away with just using you employment strictly because you have Crohn’s disease in ileostomy.
  5. There is much more to this than just the questions. Take a look at Peter Betge’s posts on the Huddle. What has been posted on the Huddle by staff is in my opinion condescending.
  6. I think her and the rest of the AAPA leadership’s silence on this issue speaks volumes. There are thousands of very pissed off PAs out there and not one bit of damage control has come forth
  7. I have not received the survey yet but from what I’m hearing it sounds to me like the people who wrote the questions have no clue about what we are or what we do. I would not come down on the AAPA about this. They probably have no idea that the company they picked has no clue
  8. I agree that type of data is totally irrelevant to title change. My guess is they are going to sell it
  9. According to the Bill History at that link it is still in a House Sub-Committee not in the Senate yet
  10. You got that right Army. A strategy like that is political suicide
  11. That sums it up very nicely. Nothing is going to happen one way or the other until the consulting firm completes its study next year. So why bother to get all worked up over it now.
  12. No that is not correct. The survey will be sent to non-members but they can not set up an account without joining AAPA. The link I s to a page where AAPA members can update their profiles.
  13. What exactly is your point with this? What does it have to do with the subject of this post or the fact that VA succeeded in getting an outstanding bill passed?
  14. According to the AAPA co-signature requirements in VA are determined at the practice level and have been for several years. (see https://www.aapa.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/6_KE_Chart_5-5-17.pdf)
