NP paid a % of pt seen, whats an appropriate %

  1. 0 I am a new NP I recently took a position in a private clinic and I am being paid a 35% of all pts I see - what is an appropriate % for someone in my position

    Also I only get paid when the insurance claim has been processed so last month I saw 40 pt's my 35% came to $250.00 for the month - I am told it takes awhile for things to be processed but is it appropriate for me to have to wait - should the Dr. be paying me regardless of when the insurance pays?

    YOu should know this is a small clinic only 1 doc 1np (me) 1RN & a few MA's

    Currently, I have no written contract so I am reaching out to anyone in the same position as me to find out what is appropriate for me to ask for ie % wise, how I am getting paid, should I get vacation, PTO, CEU's paid for, 401K, I do get medical & dental insurance

    Also, do I have someone write up a contract 1st or discuss it w/the dr I am working with. I just want to know what is appropriate - what does someone in my position really have the right too - I should also mention I love my work and the thought of leaving is very sad to me so I want to have a good idea of what other NP's have negotiated in their contracts - PLEASE HELP!!! any knowledge , advice you can pass on to me would be worth its weight in gold.....

    It's easy for me being military, I get a manadated schedule with no benifits no matter how many RVUs I pull in. I do have civilian friends getting salary at $80-90K for the first $250,000 they generate then 50% of everything after that. I crunched the numbers for the PT load I carry now and under that plan it's about $150k.

    Am I missing something here? How can one live on 250.00 per month as a NP? Surely I am not seeing something here. Even if you see 40 patients in one day, I make twice that as an RN. Help me get this because I am not going to school to make less $$$. Also are you seeing non insured, medicaid, ect.

    That's why alot of folks choose not to see medicare patients. the government dictates reimbursement and it takes forever on the best days. Make a stray mark, and someone who reiews paper all day will reject your claim and you have to start all over - that'd be another year waiting to see a dollar. Welcome to government managed care. It's truly an Obama-nation.
