Greetings, I am still in orientation with my agency and don't know the "norm" of this industry yet.
How do you start your day and get paid for mileage?
If I leave my house and go to my first visit (even if it's 40 miles away), I do not get mileage for that; mileage starts from my first patient's house to the second patient's house. However, if I stop off at the office for supplies, turn in something, etc, then I would
get mileage from the office to my first patient. At the end of the day, I would not get mileage from my last patient back to my house.
Just curious because my average mileage will be 80 miles a day. And the average distance from my house to the towns I am assigned is 40 miles...and at 48 cents per mile...it adds up in what I don't get paid.
