  1. Not here I have been doing this 26 yrs medicine almost 13 yrs as a PA , I am ready - set me free
  2. I will I promise. I sent your post to PAVMT https://www.pavmt.org/home I just joined. Dont give up! I cant work with the public due to my preexisting health problems. I really need and want a telemedicine job.
  3. I wish we had Telemed as a specialty topic I have been looking for work in Temed for years. The AAPA is now pushing to get us into the role and a new website "TelehealthMany PAs have asked about opportunities in virtual medicine and telehealth. The Medicare program reimburses PAs for providing all covered telehealth services in the same manner as physicians. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services temporarily expanded telehealth and telemedicine services to enable beneficiaries to receive a wider range of healthcare services without having to travel to an office, clinic, or health care facility. PAs are fully included in the telehealth and telemedicine expansion program. PAs can find out more information about telehealth, telemedicine, and reimbursement at AAPA’s Reimbursement website. They may also be interested in joining AAPA’s special interest group, PAs in Virtual Medicine and Telemedicine (PAVMT)." https://www.pavmt.org/ for PA interested in Telemed
  4. I am on Unemployment in WA state. I filed 3 weeks ago, and am in the system. The max you can make in WA is 790 per month ( I had been about to get 5 mo, but it became 12) Then I also get another 600 per week for Covid19 Aid in WA state. So I will have about 1390 per week 5560 per month. I am lucky I can live on 3k per month. I dont have kids, but its been 3 weeks and still no pay has been sent. They gave me a debit card. They said they had to contact my last employer, and so I did also. They are not fighting the unemployment, but I think so many have applied that its taking forever. I am worried I wont be able to pay my May rent. I live in a Monthly Motel, I came here to start a job that is now on hold. I have wanted a Telemed job for years, I just dont know who I have to murder or marry to get it.
  5. NO BODY WANTS US!!!! I have been out of work starting 2.20.2020 I have over 25 years experience. I am in the Seattle area. I cant find any kind of work right now, they all want MD/NP - hell they will even take students over us. Bring back an 80 yo MD, but for the love of GOD dont even mention PA as a part of the medical workforce. I am so angry - I started as FD Medic its in my nature to help in some way, Applied for Rapid Response Team (S) > 10 ( no answer on Any ) Applied for TeleMedicine (MD/NP Only) I made my own PPE, I printed my DNR out, Im READY to work. ..... Crickets ....
