  1. Currently I am getting paid a salary but if I reach a certain level of production ( I have to see about 280-300 pts a month in my FP clinic to reach that) I get paid 25% of my collections. This is not in addition to my salary so its not like a bonus or anything. My question is about production pay. I am wondering if any PA's out there are on straight production. This is the model that they are wanting to start. Again the number that they are going to give us is 25% of collections which seeing about 300 pt/month comes out to like 9300 (pretax, benefits, etc.) I feel that the percentage should be 30-40% from what I have heard and read about but again I am not sure. I have been working as a PA for 3 years and don't know a lot about "production pay" only. Is 25% good, ok or just crap? Any insight would help as I am going to be talking to my company in about a week to discuss this.
  2. I recently interviewed with and was offered a part-time position with a private practice foot & ankle surgery group in Virginia. The job would be clinic only and no call. The exact schedule is to be determined at this point but I suspect somewhere close to 20 hours a week based on my availability likely to include some Saturdays. I have about 5 years of experience in general orthopedics, urgent care/occ health, and med/surg. This practice has not ever had a PA before but is very open to the idea and big on work/life balance. They essentially told me to take some time to write up my ideal hourly rate and benefits package and what I would want for a schedule. I haven't had much experience with part time compensation and benefits as I have only ever worked full time. What should I ask for? Do I need to adjust the benefits based on part time work? I want to make sure I set the bar high for any future PAs they work with but be reasonable at the same time. Here's what I'm thinking based on the 2015 AAPA regional and national salary reports (staying in the 50th-75th percentiles) and previous experience: $55/hr $2500 CME stipend, 40 hours CME PTO per calendar year Malpractice covered: occurrence or claims made with tail PTO (including vacation and sick time) 160 hours per calendar year (equivalent to 4 weeks) Maternity leave paid 12 weeks (though not sure how to calculate this for part time work. Based on 20 hour week? 40 hour week?) Bereavement paid 3 days NCCPA fees, State licensing , and DEA registration AAPA membership + 1 specialty membership Flexible spending account for healthcare (up to $2550) and daycare (up to $5k) Employer paid long term disability: 60% of income Employer paid life insurance: $50,000 Retirement: 3% of salary contributed to retirement by the employer regardless of employee contribution Crossfit gym membership (one of the partner docs owns a gym near me) (Don't need health insurance, got it through husband) Or should I just ask for a higher hourly rate with malpractice and tail and forgo the rest of the benefits? Did I miss anything important I should ask for? Thanks!
  3. Fellow Psychiatry PAs; I am rapidly approaching my 1 year mark with an outpatient psychiatry practice. I am looking for any input anyone has to offer WRT salary, bonus, contract terms etc. I graduated approximately 1 year ago and I have only had this one job since. I recently changed my schedule from 5 days a week at 8 Hours per to 4 days at 10 hours per. On average I see XX patients per week. Currently my salary is competitive and we do get some benefits. We get 15 vacation days for year 1 then 20 per year, 5 sick days, 6 federal holidays, 5 CME days and $3,000. There is a bonus structure, it is a % for collections over 200K. I am not certain what this will amount to as I have not seen what my collections are. I plan on asking for access to the billing data. The practice has 4 MDs 3 total PAs and around 15 LCSWs, Psychologists and LPCs. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hey all, this is my first post, and I am hoping for some advice on a situation I am in. I am about to start my first job in orthopedic surgery and there is going to be a waiting period between the time I pass the PANCE and the time I am licensed. My future employer would like me to start as soon as possible however my contracted salary will not begin until I have my license. They are willing to pay me for my time prior to getting my license so I will be there to get into the groove of things and start learning. We do not have an agreed upon compensation yet and I was wondering what the norm is and how much I should ask to be compensated for my time prior to my contract salary starting. I will be working in a suburb of a large city. Cheers
  5. Hello all. I have a job offer as a new-grad in the ED in a critical access hospital and would really appreciate some input. The practice setting seemed ideal during my time checking out the site. It's a rural ED, primarily staffed by PAs (there is an MD onsite 1-2 days/week). The rest of the PAs working here are well seasoned however. They are willing to train a new grad toward becoming an autonomous provider (there will be a 6mo-1yr orientation period). The shifts are 12 hours with the choice to work either 3 or 4 days per week (84 or 96 hours per 2 week pay period). The administration staff and providers were all very nice. So at this point sounds great, right? Sign-on: $2500 Wage: $39/hr with bump up to $41/hr at end or orientation (6-9mo). Wage reassessment at end of 1st year. Time and a half for anything over 40 hrs/week. I have told them the rate is low, but they rebut with the fact that I will be making $105k/yr if I work four 12 hour shifts/week [*]$1500 CME, 7days. [*]PTO: 2-3 weeks determinate upon hours worked [*]Benefits: Health, Dental, Vision included [*]401k: 4% match after 2 years [*]All licensure expenses paid [*]$350/mo additional for loan repayment [*]Contract length is 2 years The job is in an area that I would enjoy living (lots of outdoor possibilities). Everything looks good to me except the hourly wage. When you look at the annual salary including overtime, it's not bad ($105k), but that's working four 12s/week. Is that a lot of hours in the ED? Working three 12s/week would drop it down to 87,204/yr. I have talked to a couple class-mates taking ED jobs starting at $55/hr, but with a less autonomous position. I know there are a lot of contracts posted right now with it being that time of year but I would really appreciate your input. What are your guys/gals thoughts?
