Portamedic Position?

  1. I recently was considered as a Paramedic RN to supplement my FT RN income and haven't really got into specifics regarding wages with the hiring manager. The reason I originally applied for the position was because a RN friend told me that this company paid very well for PT exams for insurance companies. I was wondering if anyone here works for a Portamedic firm and could give me some insight of how much per exam I would expect and if it is good income. I've done some research and some say it's wonderful if you can get a position, while others say the paperwork, etc isn't worth the salary. However, I have been told that some insurance companies pay up to $150 per exam and in my area I could be doing up to 10-20 exams per week PT which is VERY good 'supplement' income. If someone could please give me some insight on the Porta/Paramedical field I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    I'm also interested in doing exams for Portamedic. There's a location down the road from me, and I've already faxed my resume', but I wanted to hear a little more about the pay (duh, of course) and whether one is 1099 or W2. Judging from your header, John, one is 1099, which is nice....I can write off all expenses. I've yet to hear back from Portamedic, though.

    Anyway, kindly drop me a line and let me know how you like working with Portamedic.

    Does anyone have any updated information on paramedical exams for the current year 2010? I may be interested in doing some additional work in this field. Thank you.

    Yes, I'd like some information on this type of job as well. Such as: What duties are expected of you as an RN? What is a typical day like? What company is best to work for? (I live in NJ), What is the salary? etc. Someone please help us out and post something! Thanks!

    Hi, I am new to this board. I found this site while searching for portamedic info. I am unable to PM anyone due to not having 15 posts. So if anyone has any info that they would like to share please PM me. Thank you.
