What is your Hospice paying for mileageRegister Today!
- by jeannepaul Apr 25, '11With the gas prices increasing, what is your Hospice paying for mileage, has anyones gone up? I live in San Antonio and gas is around 3.65-375 and I am getting .50 a mile. There has not been any mention of it going up yet.
- Apr 25, '11 by madwife2002My company pay 0.51 cents per mile which they increased last year and now is out of date lol
- Apr 25, '11 by tewdlesWe get the current Fed reimbursement rate...never enough, but better than a sharp stick in the eye.
- Apr 26, '11 by Hospice Nurse LPNWe only get 0.41 cents/mile. :-( However, management does pass out Exxon gas cards ($25. to $50.) to those of us "on the road". I only drive about 75 miles/week because I only see LTC pts.
- Apr 26, '11 by AviationurseI do homehealth and our gas prices are almost 5 dollars a gallon...the hh agencies wont pay for gas just 50 dollars to visit a patient using fllat rate......55 to open a case and drive 21 miles one wayin a very bad gangshooting neigborhood...plus we have to pay for 2 dollar parking with paperwork up to the ceiling at my own pocket.....on top of that use our own phone with no reimbursment...
- Apr 26, '11 by TinkerBelle_81I got 2 jobs as a hospice RN
For my full time job i only get paid 50 cents per mile
For my part time job i get paid per diem - only $40 per patient i see.
This is awful. They should really increase our rate if not, i will be looking into other areas of nursing where i don't have to drive and not get paid enough!
- Apr 28, '11 by kjp1962I work only hospice admissions only in southern Cal. Currently gas is about 4.20 a gallon. We are getting a 4 cent increase after we complained so the new mileage reimbursement is now at .47/mile. Not even the federal rate. The entire topic gets me so irritated. If I drive 30 miles away, they tell me I can only claim mileage starting from "the office and back". I live 20 miles from the office. So, I get reimbursed a total of 20 miles (10 miles to and 10 miles from) that 60 mile round trip visit, which translates into 9.40 reimburseable for a trip that costs me 12.60 in my jeep. To buy a newer vehicle to save gas would be not smart as it would take 7 years to make it cost effective according to a program I used online. So, when I heard gas will reach 6.00 a gal this summer, I am thinking of changing jobs because eventually it may be too big a hit to absorb.
- May 2, '11 by tewdlesYikes...I would guess no hospice is paying adequately to cover the expenses when gas is headed toward $5/gal.
Can someone in Washington please save us from the greed of corporate oil?
- May 2, '11 by curiousauntieWe had been getting .42/mile until 2 weeks ago when it went up to .45/mile. I live in New Jersey, with lower gas prices (and we Jersey Girls don't pump gas ...really, it is illegal here to pump your own) and today I paid 3.83 to fill up. ($56) Since I work for a national company, even the poor people with the much higher gas prices get the same amount. I had figured last year with gas at about 2.60 a gal and my truck getting 18.5 mpg, that .42/mile was half for the price of gas and half for the wear and tear. I feel bad for the home health aides who make much less money than me and drive more miles a lot of the time.
