  1. Hope this post finds you well! I hope someone can help me out...out of school, I accepted a job and my malpractice (claims-made) was covered by my employer. I am now looking into my own coverage as my new employer will not cover this (yes, I know...not great, but the advantages outweighs the disadvantages). I think OCCURENCE would be the best way to go but am worried about the gap in coverage going from a claims made to an occurence policy. Have anyone else gone from claims-made to occurence policy? If you purchased a tail, how long did you keep that up? At what point (how many years) after a claims-made policy do you not need to worry about claims? I believe a tail is very costly hence wanting to start occurence policy now. Any input would be appreciated! Thank you, Tee
  2. Thanks for all your replies! I appreciate it! We will see what happens...currently under negotiations.
  3. Thank you JFarnsworth for your reply. I really appreciate it. It helps knowing what others are doing and how. We will see what happens...not ready to give up and am currently under negotiations :-)

  5. Thanks for your reply. We are still in the very early stages of negotiations. I will have to pay my own malpractice the first year. I won't need medical insurance. CME, Vacation etc has not been fully discussed yet. I am wondering if anybody else have this type of arrangement in derm and is this percentage too low? I have not worked in derm and don't know how much income I can generate per hour. Of course, I won't be doing lots of procedures right off the bat and want to know what is a reasonable amount that I can expect to make per hour doing regular derm (follow ups, acne, cryotherapy, eczema, psoriasis etc,) if I take the 25% offer. I don't know of any PA that has not had a set salary and worked solely on income percentage. I know bonuses are calculated in similar ways but your regular pay? Is this reasonable?
  6. Hope this post finds everyone well. I am currently negotiating compensation for a part-time derm position. *I have 5 years experience as a pediatric PA and had to take a short leave of absence, and am finally able to try to get into derm which has always been my goal. This potential employer would train me for 4-6 weeks unpaid and then start to book me patients. *The SP does not want to pay an hourly wage and only want to pay me 25% of collections for what i bring into the practice. *They will not cover malpractice the first year and it will be revisited in one year. We are in the early stages of negotiations and I need your help. Does anyone here only get paid a percentage of collections and if so what is the norm? I am unsettled with this because I am not sure how busy this practice is (only one physician) and its not clear how much work she has available. I am really unsure of the earning potential. *I would start with follow up patients, general derm until I was more comfortable. *The physician is very nice, willing to train (unpaid), And the physician wants to cut her own hours. It is a way for me to get in the derm door. What are your thoughts??? Thanks, Tee
