  13. Joining a private practice as a Psych APN, need advice
    I think it is 70/30 of the reimbursement - whatever you get from the insurance. I think it is gross, not factoring in other expenses.. One thing to think about you have to think about no-shows...

  14. Joining a private practice as a Psych APN, need advice
    At least 60% (your)/40% (his) split. Some psychiatrist would do 70% (your)/30%(his) split of the reimbursement. I was offered 60(mine)/40 before but I decided not to do it because of limited time...

  19. Suggestions on possible NP job offer
    This is very shady. If he want to pay you per patient, please negotiate for split of percentage eg. 60/40, 70/30 of reimbursement. That's way you're less likely to be taken advantaged of. $10 per...
