So I have recently been hired at a home health agency PRN. I currently work at another agency hourly and make $30/hr. This new agency pays per visit and their rate is $28/visit no matter if it’s an assessment visit or routine visit. I have no idea what the average rate is but that seems really low! I make about $240/day at my hourly home health job. I would have to see 8-9 patients a day in this new pay per visit job to make that. And they are telling us that each visit HAS to be at least 40 mins or the agency doesn’t get reimbursed correctly?! There’s no way I can see 8-9 patients with each visit being 40 mins or more...along with the driving that would be like a 12 hour day. FYI I am a RN and am in Ohio. Am I being cheated?

That rate is low even for an LPN doing regular follow-up visits.

Wow thats horrible

i talked to a recruiter in LA today and it was  pay per visit system and I calculated an hourly and it would be almost half of what i make here in northern california!

I love home health but not that much! Id try to find a different field to enter if it was that bad in my area. 

When i started home health it was a 25% pay cut from the hospital but worth it. Any less than that and its not worth it anymore....

What does an average entry level med surg make in ohio?

Not sure about entry level now-when I was hired for med/Surg almost 10 years ago I started at $24/hr

cost of living in NE Ohio is much lower than in California but still $28 per visit sounds quite low to me
