home care per visit pay

Posted

Specializes in psychiatric home care. Has 10 years experience.

I work for a nonprofit home care agency that is considering going from paying an hourly rate for RN Case Managers to per visit pay. I don't exactly know what this means. I make less than $25/hour at this time. I get reimbursed for mileage. The per diem visit rate is $17/visit which I know is AWFUL!!!

I am responsible for admissions, recerts, OASIS and all other case management responsibilities.

If you can tell me more about this and give me advice on what questions to ask if the agency decides to go this direction, it would be much appreciated.

I have never seen it less than $35/visit. Admissions are usually $50, and visits are between $35-40. Wherever you're working, YIKES!
