What is paid time off like at Fox Rehabilitation?

Pros

The salary is above average. PTO is average but is way easier to get requested vacation time approved Flexibility! You are in control of your schedule- want to work a little harder earlier in the week to have an easy Friday or three day weekend? You can. Got a doctors appt? No biggie. Fox really does try to hire great clinicians. I am surrounded by some of the most knowledgeable therapists out there The documentation system Fox uses is very easy and efficient once you get the hang of it No holidays, no weekends if you choose- hard to come by in a lot of settings these days

Cons

If you are a part of the small percentage of employees working in an area highly saturated with HMO plans vs straight Medicare, buckle up. You’re going to be contracting with every home health organization and their mother. This means constant contact with not only your own manager, but every other agency’s manager and their nurses, and being somewhat proficient enough in 6+ documentation systems. It is overwhelming and time consuming. If you are starting in a new territory or newly acquired contracted ALFs for Fox and expected to start from the ground up, it is overwhelming and a slow process at times. You will probably have to do a lot of covering in other areas (some pretty far away) to meet your quota. It is stressful to say the least at first.

Advice to Management

Don’t forget about those of us treating under Medicare Part A. It’s hard work, stressful, time consuming, and requires more visits to meet quota.

How are career development opportunities at Fox Rehabilitation?

Pros

On your team you have therapists (PTs, OTs and SLPs) which you can work closely with to discuss treatments and plan of cares, as well as a regional director, an RQAL (whom helps with questions about documentation), an account manager whom advocates for you and builds a referral network with physicians and someone in home office to help answer any insurance questions. Your home office liaison is always quick to respond and readily available- I feel very well supported while I am out treating clients. There are also a lot of different career opportunities and paths to take within FOX besides just treating patients. Though it is not mandatory nor expected, there is a lot of support if you wanted to pursue managerial, marketing, or other types of positions within FOX. You also get to make your own schedule which can be nice especially if there is a family emergency or doctor's appointments. It is true you have unpaid meetings- however those meetings are typically <1 hour and always contain clinical content to improve the quality of your care. Always something helpful and beneficial out of it- plus breakfast is provided and you get to socialize with colleagues.

Cons

Flexible Schedule: There is definitely a learning curve for making your own schedule and it can be stressful at times if there are cancellations because you are responsible for meeting your quota. The best advice I got was to take on more clients that way if someone cancels you still have extra appointments AND if no one cancels you can just get paid overtime or put it in your bank for later. PTO: Because of the flexible schedule you don't get a lot of PTO time AND if you don't plan accordingly and get a lot of cancellations or there was a huge storm you have to take from your PTO.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Fox Rehabilitation?

Pros

There are definitely "pros" worth mentioning based on my experience working for Fox Rehabilitation. In general, there is a TON of support re: any issue you may have whether it be clinical, personal, etc from multiple resources; regional director, other co workers, HR, etc. Even though Fox is a larger company, you work on a "team" that is within your region and that "team" becomes a second family who I personally reach out to often for various issues and support when needed. I feel as though all of my colleagues and I share the same point of view which I love (we care about our patients in the most genuine way!) FLEXIBILITY is amazing as you make your own schedule to best accommodate your own life! Requesting PTO has never been denied :) Hearing that you've done a good job and your hard work is recognized is always a plus, especially when you've worked for other companies that you have not heard this. Being in home care setting, this allows us to provide such functional and meaningful goals to patients which is amazing. There is plenty of opportunity to grow as a clinician with continuing education courses (provided to you via Medbridge membership) and there are also opportunities to grow past clinical work if you desire.

Cons

Driving can be tough if your patients are not located near one another or if you are required to go to an area that is not exactly close to home (my RD personally worked with me and another therapist to make it the best scenario for both of us, but this might not always be the case). On that note, you are not reimbursed for gas/mileage. If a patient cancels, you are responsible to "make up" that visit. Fox does not pay for our cell phones, which I feel like I use for work more than anything (they do offer a small discount with certain providers, but not anything of a great deal). Raises are currently on hold. Documentation can be cumbersome which results in completing "work at home."

Does Fox Rehabilitation have any sort of mentoring program?

Pros

From the very start of the interview process, I was so excited and wanted to join the Fox team as everyone that I spoke to was very kind and they made me even more excited to start my career in physical therapy. After I had passed the NPTE, within about 2 hours I accepted a job with Fox. Upon joining, I went to orientation where they did a wonderful job with training on the documentation system and we also were able to hear the CEO, Tim Fox speak on a powerful message which again increased my excitment to begin my career. Since joining the Fox team, I have been so impressed with my team of coworkers who are great at communication and very supportive! Fox offers therapists to work in a Unique setting of “Geriatric house calls”. This company is very EBP focused which helps me to stay connected with the latest research and provide the best care to clients. Being a new grad, I was nervous being in the home setting due to thinking there would be a lack of mentorship, but Fox offers an amazing mentorship program for new grads and this has allowed me to not only be comfortable but also allowed me to be an advocate for new grads who are thinking of entering this type of setting!

Cons

Good time management skills needed!
