What You Get

Underline

Compensation

We do a comprehensive review of your compensation plan in its entirety, so you know exactly what it means for your finances. We will diagnose and discuss your compensation, all bonus schedules or plans, and any additional signing bonuses or stipends to ensure they are in line with regional, state, and even city-specific averages. We give you specific talking points and questions to ask. Since we specialize in this, we are very creative with what you could ask for, and of course ‘how’ you could ask.

Benefits

A full review of all your benefits will be conducted so you know if/how they play a role in the entire picture of compensation and the deal. We will discuss what is and is not negotiable, what questions you need to ask (and ‘how’ to ask them), as well as compare to averages. From time away to CME budgets and physician retirement plans, you will know without a doubt how your benefit plan compares to your peers.

Covenants

Our contract review specialists are responsible for reviewing all restrictive covenants in your contract together with our in-house attorneys. Our specialists will review all termination, malpractice, and restrictive covenants for comparison to market norms in your area (*). We have experience in reviewing agreements in specialties from all 50 states, and familiar with what the market bears in your particular area and specialty.

* Should you need a state-specific attorney we are able to refer you to in-state counsel that can help with your needs for items such as enforceability of certain terms and conditions, etc.

Why Do You Need Compensation Rx?

Underline

We know whether or not you are getting paid fairly for the efforts you make daily!

It is no secret that physician compensation can be a difficult discussion with potential employers. We make it a simple one.

We know there is no easy way to currently talk about this topic.

Discussing physician compensation is often taboo. Having an independent third party to discuss your personal situation confidentially is invaluable.

With over a decade serving physicians, we are the only firm in the country focused on helping physicians (not hospitals) understand and discuss pay.

Hospitals pay tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to consultants and large organizations each year to determine how little they can pay you. We are the only firm in the country focusing on the physician in this equation.

You have no training in this.

Physicians are well trained in their respective roles as clinicians and scientists. Unfortunately, you are not trained in evaluating physician compensation and how to have these stressful conversations. We love to listen and share with you what we have learned over a decade in this market. We are experts in negotiating and discussing physician compensation.

Healthcare is drastically changing.

As the finances of healthcare change, so does how an employer looks to physician compensation and their highest-paid employees, i.e., physicians. They are armed with data, contracts, consultants, and knowledge that you are not. We balance this by arming you with the data, knowledge, and your consultant throughout the process. We then help coach you on how to best proceed (or we can have this conversation with your employer for you if you wish).

You do not have to have this difficult conversation, but you should.

When it comes to your pay, you can do two things: 1) Ignore the discussion and let the employer dictate it; 2) Play an active role in understanding it, negotiating it, and being involved in it.

We Are Experienced In Every Physician Specialty In All 50 States.

We have done Physician Contract Reviews since 2011, for every specialty, in ALL 50 States, from Nurse Practitioners and CRNAs to the most highly sub-specialized surgeon. We are genuinely focused on you as the provider and understand ALL the variations in your particular market. We have raw, internal data from over 10,000 Physicians we have served, providing crystal-clear clarity on actual physician compensation data. Our data is real-time, so there is no national survey lag (typically 14-20 months behind).

We Coach You Through The Negotiation.

We provide you with a 30-minute phone call with one of our physician compensation review specialists. You have the option to have ongoing support and personalized coaching on how to negotiate your contract in a style that fits your personality. Part-time Pediatrician in your first agreement? 20-year Cardiothoracic Surgeon on to your 4th program creation? We know your situation and how to customize our process to YOU. We genuinely have your back.

Super fast turnaround time and very helpful responses in contract review. We had used an independent lawyer for a previous job that cost three times as much and was not nearly as helpful. Would definitely recommend to my colleagues and would use again in the future.
