  1. I’m a PA in general surgery and my SP will be soon be leaving for his annual two week medical missions trip. We will have a locums in to cover him for the duration he’s gone... Would this locums need to sign as a sort of temp SP for me to scrub with him? Is there some kind of exception with locums that allows PAs to work without all the signatures?
  2. Hello all, I am a PA switching from a surgical specialty to emergency medicine ( in PA). I have been practicing for about 3 years. I am expected to start my new position mid January. We are sending my new supervising physician agreement in this week (end of October). I was wondering how long it typically takes for the state to approve the agreement? I am worried that I will not be able to start on time. Also the hospital I work at drops your pay 'two tiers' when you switch specialties within the network. I was wondering if this is common or if anyone else has had a similar experience. Also any tips for switching specialties would be appreciated..
  3. I just moved to Texas/got my PA license after practicing in another state for about 1 year. At an interview, a PA affiliated with the practice told me he does not have a DEA number and that when he needed to write for a controlled substance, he submitted it under his supervising doc's name. ...Is this allowed? My prior state required your supervising doc to co-sign chart within 72 hours of writing a controlled substance. I did see on the TMB site that PAs can write for 30 days of a controlled substance at a time and must document consultation with their supervisor before refilling. Is this correct? Also, what are the requirements for supervising docs as far as signing charts? I looked through the TMB site and am not seeing specifics. My last state required "x"% of all charts to be co-signed. I'm quite certain the PA told me the doc doesn't sign his charts, which is surprising to me. Any other pearls of wisdom about practice/ practice law in Texas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Can anyone offer a quick opinion on this. For a new grad and they have worked with new grads before. Location is TX, not rural. 1:2 weekend coverage (mon/fri off). Normal shift ~18 pts and weekend shift ~25. Hospital rounding between 3 facilities a day, small amount of out-pt work, have to drive between facilities during the day (all are 5-10m drive). 100k base, 8k bonus after 1 yr, 3k relocation. 2 week pto, standard 30/70 health care, 2-3k cme without additional time off for cme. Two 3 hr ER call in evenings alongside doc with compensation. No overnight, swing shift, no procedures. Thoughts? There is also a clause that does not allow moonlighting. I am going to ask them to remove this because it doesn't make sense to me. It seems like a good first job. I am just looking for some reassurance since this will be my first time signing a binding contract and it has all the standard if you quit, pay a fee, etc so I have to get all my ducks in a row now.
  5. Hello Everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew the consequences of not filling out the supervising MD forms in time? I recently graduated and work for an ER group in Florida. The state says you must update it within 30 days, but it slipped my mind with moving, credentialing, etc... I live in Florida and I've been working for a 1.5 months. Any help/advice/experiences would be appreciated. DF
  6. I'm a PA in NC and cleared that I can open my own clinic, I just need a supervising physician. I have a few in mind to approach but I have no idea what to offer them in terms of reimbursement. Any ideas? I will have a micro solo practice, probably only 20 pts/max per week, and only 3 weeks out of the month. It's a consultative internal medicine integrative medicine practice --cash only and I have opted out of Medicare. I anticipate grossing $2400-3000/week. I've practiced for 25 years and (knock wood) been fortunate to not ever have any issues with the Med Board or malpractice. The highest risk is that some of my patients will be chronic lyme/tick borne illness patients (will use oral abx) and I know that is not endearing to the establishment (yet!) In our state, the SP does not even need to co-sign charts. For the first six months we need to meet once a month, then q 6 months thereafter. Any insight on how to approach reimbursement or where to find that kind of information would be greatly appreciated. I'm new to this forum so I'm not sure if I will be email notified of a response, so here's an email: healingpathnow at gmail to reach me at. Thanks!
