  1. Hello everyone, I work at a rural hospital in orthopedic surgery. I recently met with my employer’s director of clinical operations to discuss my productivity. In my second contract (signed this summer) it states that there will be a bonus of $25 for every wRVU over 2350. Last year as a new graduate I produced somewhere around 4300. During the meeting with the director I was given a statement of practice operations stating my current RVUs, charges, etc with the statement that the “fee modifying deduction” has not yet been added to the RVU total. He states that I will receive 25% of the surgeon’s RVUs for each billable surgery. That makes sense, however, they are wanting to give me 85% of my own clinic RVUs. Does anyone else have any experience with these kind of deductions in regards to their bonus payout? I know the conversion factor of $25 is already pretty low, so are they trying to avoid paying me with these deductions? There is nothing in my contract regarding these deductions. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi All, Does anyone have any experience with being compensated with RVU alone? Our physician staffing firm is contemplating straight RVU compensation. We have been hourly since the beginning, but recently there has been a lot of talk about going to RVU w/o a base salary just like our supervising ED Docs. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

  3. I am an ortho PA for a large hospital owned ortho group. I was hired 3 1/2 years ago to work with a specific surgeon. As the PA's in the group have increased, the management team is looking at our salaries and seeing that we don't make enough RVU's to cover our salary. The only ones who are doing so, work for total joint surgeons. My surgeon does maybe 1 total a week and mostly outpatient surgeries that some can bill for me and some can't. Since the surgeon gets paid based on RVU's (and I get paid a salary from the hospital), he does not want me to do things that can be billed. Therfore, I am seeing all postop's, injections, and fracture follow-ups. There is no way I can make my salary in RVU's if I am not seeing many billable patients. Does anyone have any advice on how to track our productivity that is not RVU based? Other ortho PA's - are you paid by the hospital or surgeon? Do you have issues with "making your salary?" Thanks in advance.
  4. Hey all, I'll be graduating in a week and I've been in touch with the new director of a local ER. I've known him professionally in the past and there is mutual interest in getting me to work there. The ER in question recently acquired a new contract that I've heard is purely RVU based pay. I don't know specifics yet as I haven't yet been presented with a contract. As a new grad with expectedly low productivity, would it be a bad idea to sign on for only RVU pay? Thanks in advance for your advice.
  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
  6. I got an offer today for an Urgent Care Gig It includes 95,000 salary (45.68 per hr), Full health/dental no cost to me, 1% matching 401k, 2 weeks PTO, 10,000 sign on bonus, malpractice paid. It also includes $10.00 per RVU for each RVU generated over 3250 per year, BONUS. This is a 3 year contract. Is the RVU bonus subject to higher taxes than my normal income will be? How many RVU's can I expect based on an avg pt load of 25 pt per day? I am going to counter with a request for DEA, License Registration paid, and 50 dollars per/hr. I have never worked based on RVU, so this is new, all help I can get would be great!!!!
  7. loaded question: Derm position--but I would just like to understand from a general standpoint My contract states "will be compensated at a rate equal to 15% of collections above 150k per annum" I've seen many posts that include some variation of this, although I don't exactly understand how it works. Specifically, how is it measured? What expenses are included (office visits, procedures, products, etc) When Is the bonus "typically" paid out to you? (I know my contract says per annum) But should it be EACH time I generate collections above 150K? How realistic is it to reach that mark as a new grad? Is the bonus amount tax free? And shouldn't I always be allowed access to my productivity data?
  8. Hello, I received a psychiatry PA position offer for $100,000 per year, with a $10,000 2 yr commitment sign on bonus paid out after 90 days of employment. Also includes ability to earn an incentive of $20 for every RVU’s in excess of the target set for the calendar year. RVU Target - 3,000 - $20 / RVU. is that a good offer? i have never worked with RVU's before. Base salary seems low for a psych PA. Benefits are great/standard, etc. any ideas on how to negotiate for higher base salary or loan repayment?
  9. Just curious if anyone has an eat what you kill contract based on RVU prduction? What is the going multiplier for PAs? I've heard anywhere from 26-31. Any info would be appreciated.
  10. I see alot of 2 week post op Hip and Knee replacements. Until now I have always circled the global period no charge fee. I've been told that if you ask them about immunodeficiney issues that could effect the outcome of the procedure and healing (ie smoking, dm, vit d deficiency) then you can bill as a level 1. Is this true? Is there any way that I can bill and get RVU for a simple 2 week post of a TKA or THA? Thank you
  11. Negotiating a family practice job in the Mountain West as a new grad, trying to get a feel for a) How much liability insurance I need if I'm not covered under my employer and b) How much reimbursement per RVU I should expect. MedEdge offers a 100k/300k claims-made for pretty cheap but I've been told by some to purchase no less than 1M/3M... Any thoughts? I've also been offered a productivity bonus at $30/RVU. No info on thresholds or other specifics yet. Is $30 fair for family practice? I've heard pediatricans making $40 and orthopedic surgeons making $60/RVU to put it into perspective. Thank you.
