  1. I am looking for some insight from any PA practicing in outpatient psychiatry, especially is TN or VA I heard from a colleague that there has been some issue with reimbursement in the outpatient psychiatry realm that is specific to PA services I wondered if anyone currently practicing in this specialty or anyone with knowledge about the situation could weigh in. Are PAs reimbursed at the normal rate or at a decreased rate? Are there discrepancies between reimbursement for medicare/Medicaid and commercial insurers? Thank you all in advance!
  2. When it's all said and done, how much of the cash I'm bringing in should I expect to get back in wages, productivity, etc.? I'm seeing ~10 patients a day on average in family practice and my current wages/productivity represent about 1/3 of everything I bring in. The problem is that I still don't feel like I'm compensated very well. I really need to be seeing 15-20 peeps a day, I know, but how much more can I ask for in the mean time? 40% of what I bring in? 50%?
  3. I work as a physician assistant at an orthopedic urgent care center where we offer Neuromuscular Electric Stimulation (NMES) as a therapy to aid in recovery and healing. We have a therapist here 3 days a week for that. As a PA, are we able to bill a therapy code for that therapy on the days therapist is not here and I provide the therapy? Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.
  4. I had posted on another thread that I am looking to renew my contract and maybe go to a straight production contract for my derm job. When I joined the practice, I was told that they had good collections, around the 80% mark. That seemed to be excellent. However, yesterday I had them pull my charged amount for the year and it showed that I had charged (or billed?) about $900K but the net received, which I am assuming is collected monies, was only about $360K. That's a collection rate of 40%. That didn't seem right. What are typical collection rates you guys are seeing out there?
  5. Hello, I am an orthopedic surgery PA with > 10 years experience, and am looking to learn about RVU -based reimbursement, for a potential job change. The RVUs would be awarded based upon billing, not collections, as it is an underserved area with poor payer mix. It would be clinic-based; no surgical assisting or hospital work. My questions: 1. Does anyone know what the typical $ per RVU value would be, for an orthopedic PA? 2. Does anyone have access to a list of RVU per CPT code for typical orthopedic office procedures? (injections, fracture care, splinting, etc). I was able to find 0.97 for 99213, which is a common office visit code ...I'm more curious about the procedures 3. Is this a workable plan for orthopedics? Is it possible to thrive financially within an RVU -based system? I am aware that it would be important to avoid seeing a lot of postop patients within their global billing period, as those visits award 0 RVUs. Correct? Any insight you can provide, would be appreciated! Thanks
