  1. I have a set up similar to this. I get a base salary and then I get a percentage of my collections after Im revenue neutral. I do like it like this because it definitely gives me some skin in the game. One of the reasons why I think it works is because I do have access to all my collections. We do this quarterly. I am in Neurosurgery. initially it started @ 10% but have incrementally increased my salary and percentage through yearly renegotiations. PM me if you have any specific questions
  2. Just depends on what state you live in and how many deductions you are claiming? No secret math, just pay divided by months, divided by pay cycle minus taxes.
  3. Majority will be in network, about one third will probably be out of network
  4. I am a Neurosurgical PA and I just started a new job in Texas. My new gig pays me a salary as well as I get 10% of my collections after Im revenue neutral. I will be doing approximately 35o cases per year (PLIF,ALIF,XLIF, ACDF, Corpectomies, Lami, Micro, mostly spine, very little crani work). I am in the Fort Worth area and most of the patients have private insurance, then some Medicare, Medicare w/supplemental. I am just curious does anyone have any ballpark as to what I may be looking to collect on that 10%?

  6. There is not a surgical PA program that I am aware of. Physician Assistant programs encompass surgical rotations.
  7. Congrats on graduating, IMO I really think that you should go into which ever field you feel the most compelled to do. There may be some teaching institutions which will have fewer opportunities to scrub in but there are plenty of surgical jobs in hospitals and in private groups which you will scrub in on a very regular basis. When I started I took a surgical position as well as a moonlight job in the ER. There is not a "correct" formula. There are some jobs which will be better for a "seasoned" provider but if you really want a specific specialty and are willing to move to it, I am confident that you can find it and do perfectly well.
  8. I do not know any PA's who started at $60.00-$75.00 a hour out of school. In the right area, $75.00 a hour is attainable but only probable in a couple subspecialties and with years experience. If you get a offer close to $75.00 a hour out of school.... TAKE IT!! Many of these per hour jobs online are from head hunters who have a lot of Locum Tenems which typically pay a little more but are only temp positions. It is hard for me to understand how one can attain 120K-170K in debt for a profession which they did know there future expected salary.
  9. No temp license in Illionis. I would get your applications into the IDPR as soon as possible. The state has cut the staff on all medical licenses to only one person which will move everything to a virtual standstill.
  10. They will always offer low ball wages if you accept that crap. Quit!
  11. I have not heard of any programs which are faster than 2 years. By the time you would complete a program you should definitely find something as a PharmD. If you have a overachieving personality and decide to become a PA, you would obviously be very marketable especially in certain fields.
  12. Look into FP, not the "critical" nature of ICU and less hectic compared to an urgent care setting. You didnt set yourself up for success by choosing the jobs you did right out of school. Get some experience first and maybe come back to those particular specialties later in your career and I have a feeling that you may not feel so overwhelmed. Good luck.
  13. I am in Illinois and I feel that the presented starting salary is VERY low. I might have missed it but what specialty are you going into? I would not accept a starting salary that low in any specialty. Do they count your CME as vacation days because if they do than you are down to basically 1 week vacation. I think that you can negotiate a better overall contract. Good luck.
