Best is the options of premiums and plans to fit individual needs. Worst is not being company wide during transfers across the nation.
1. For providers, there is no 401K match. You yourself contribute part of your salary to your 401K. But there is an additional salary reducing retirement savings option which allows you to save more than just 401K amount. 2. Providers in different states are offered different health insurance packages (this is understandable). Physicians will pay more premiums than other EmCare staff (they are offered different packages). Significant portion of the premiums for physicians/PAs/NPs themselves is covered by the company, but the part for spouses and other family members is mostly not covered by the company (this is becoming the norms now. Comparing with one of EmCare's competitors, EmCare's health benefits are better at least in the state where I work. Dental insurance are about the same comparing with one of the competitors. 3. There is no pension plan. 4. There is an employee stock purchase discount, about 10% discount. 5. Part-time providers are not eligible for health/dental benefits. You need to work 120 hours per month to be eligible for health benefits (before EmCare Inc took over the providers in the ED, our hospital required 20 hours per week to qualify as a part-time employee with benefit). 6. CME allowance was recently reduced to $3000.
Available to part time workers
It's alright. Incentive bonuses included.
Vacation time was terrible. Sick and vacation need to be lumped into one bank of PTO
The best thing about benefits, well...minimal I suppose would describe them. They do offer malpractice coverage, thank you for your generosity. Maybe upper management's are better, not sure.
Bet is time off and insurance benefits
Benefits only if you work a certain number of hours a month.
Solely coinsurance and higher deductibles.
Overall the benefits package was decent
