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
Just curious what a 'normal' split is. I was told by my employer that 56% is pretty standard. I worked for them for 1 year on salary with: They paid-Malpractice (Occurrence Policy with maximum coverage), DEA and state license fee paid, 15 PTO days, 5 Paid Sick Days, 5 CME days and $2,000 budget. They offered me a straight % and: 160 hours time off w/o pay, 3 CME days w/o pay, Group life insurance policy (50K), disability (Short and long term). 6 months into the production year they cancelled the disability policy and increased the split to 58% Still, I am a W-2 Employee (They pay 7% of FICA). Does this sound pretty standard? What is an average monthly production? thanks in advance..
