  1. How do you know you want to work in Ortho?
  2. I've finally was able to speak with one of our auditors. She told me I should be billing these visits. I asked her to double check and it turns out pre-op h&ps are not billable.
  3. My new gig is 3-5% of salary if hit certain documentation performance measures + SO review. ($6k?) My old place had a graduated scale of percentage of net profits anywhere from 4% to 25% depending on how much I brought in. Last year I hit the 10% mark which gave me about $9k
  4. We had an AT that was in charge of all DME including casts. Such a great resource.
  5. The only time I've seen application fees was when applying for credentials, and that has always been payed for by the department. I would never pay to apply for a job, and if they asked me to pay for credentialing, I would ask them to pay for me, or at least reimburse me.
  6. Hippopa - the easiest 50 Cat 1s ever Roschreview - 50 Cat 1s but you have to actually prove you know something
  7. I don't know what a typical RVU is worth since I've never been on that model. However a 1st assist fee is usually only 15% of the procedure reimbursement, and I'm sure you are aware that E&M codes are usually reimbursed at 85% for a PA vs physician. So as far as the "Fee modifying calculation" that sounds legit to me.
  8. You are not likely going to get this reimbursed. I would take a similar approach as above. Start the job search and when you find something promising give your current employer a chance to improve your situation and make your grievance at that point. But seriously unless you love your job I would start looking elsewhere. It will feel good to stick it to em
  9. Ask for an advance to help cover the cost your transition. Or find another job that covers reasonable expenses of doing the job they hired you for
  10. I think your gonna need to do a skills check no matter what. I did eLearning with aha and skills check with local instructor
  11. Call the hospital operater, ask for HR, then call HR and ask to speak with whoever recruits PAs.
  12. 20 patients at 4 different sites? No thank you.
  13. Sounds like a winner to me. Obvious support for a new grad, sending you t boot camp is pretty amazing. Great PTO, salary is competitive, and loan repayment is a bonus. Is this a year contract? If you can't hack the schedule take the experience and find a better job in a year or two.
  14. In my new roll I am doing a ton of H&Ps. In my previous roll these were always rolled into the global. But these are elective patients, some of whome I am reviewing consult notes on and adjusting meds (anticoags mostly, but I don a general need list cleanup in the office before the admission). I'm also ordering and reviewing labs. Rxing muporicin. Are you guys billing for these more complicated patients even though it's an H&P visit?
  15. I've never been asked about the kind of thing by employers...just need to show a diploma. Initial State licensing was another issue. What is this "permanent record" people refer too?
