EMR REQUIREMENTS FOR CLINICAL STAFF
You must have access to a computer and smartphone, as our easy-to-use Mediware EHR system captures electronic signatures and is web-based.
PAYMENT, TIMEKEEPING, ETC
W2 Clinical Staff gets paid on a Fee-For-Service Model (FFS) -
Overtime. Overtime is not allowed for Case Management staff. For Clinicians who are Registered Intern or Licensed, you are exempt from overtime requirements/regulations.
Draws/Advances. In order to keep up with federal requirements, you must log-in all worked hours in the ADP/PAYCOR system (see # 4 below). On those weeks in which you log-in work hours but you don't have any (or enough) billable notes turned-in, we will pay you a draw (or advance) to cover your Minimum Wage amount. You supervisor can inform you about this procedure at a later time during orientation.
Payment Calendar. Since we operate on a Fee-For-Service basis, you must know that there is a three-week gap, from the end of the work-period, to the direct deposit date. Please plan accordingly. For 99% of clinicians, this does not pose a problem after understanding, that eventually if you do your work, you will get a steady paycheck every week. Of course, this varies depending on how many cases you have, if your are working PT or FT, etc.
