What happens if this is not stopped is that insurance companies will drop providers so that when patients come to your practice, you are forced to accept the lower out of network rate with no opportunity to negotiate. It is a big disaster no matter your specialty. Nobody likes balance billing, but this is the wrong way to go about it. We like to argue about minuscule ER differences for funds on this forum. Talk about getting our priorities wrong. This is a big deal, glad people are talking about it.
Wow this is a great deal, for Unison that is. Why on earth would you take on all the expenses, taxes, upkeep, insurance, renovations, just to share the benefits with a third party? I’d lend you the money with no upfront costs and still make out like a bandit at your expense. I hope nobody falls for these predatory traps.
FYI, home renovations always end up costing twice as much as planned and take twice as long
Also, OP, how much money to contribute to an employer sponsored account has nothing to do with IRA, Roth IRA, or backdoor Roth contributions and such.August 12, 2019 at 7:59 pm MST in reply to: Does a BackDoor Roth IRA beat a Traditional IRA in the end??? #238469
Yes, since at the average physician’s income there is no deduction for for a trad IRAAugust 12, 2019 at 2:47 pm MST in reply to: Does a BackDoor Roth IRA beat a Traditional IRA in the end??? #238375
Wouldn’t IRA accounts become problematic though when it comes to medicaid eligibility and such? For instance, a medical catastrophe happens, wouldn’t Medicaid require you to deplete the IRA before kicking in?
Also, depending on the practice you end up joining after training, there might be several months of no income as it takes time for AR to collect your bills.
Nah the hospital will not want to ‘get it over with’. If it is truly meritless they will fight.
Lol I started shaving my head. Granted I and my better half like the look, but it does hide premature graying secondary to the stress of the job
Ha, what can I say? 25k/month easily. More than half of it is home renovation budget. Once we hit our savings goal for the year (30%) any leftover is spent without budgeting.
OP finally fell asleep!
Anesthesia can be very tough especially in a tertiary care center. Don’t ask me how I know. I am still recovering from a brutal weekend 5 days ago. However, in a smaller hospital or such anesthesia can be much better, even though income will usually be lower and cases not as challenging. I don’t enjoy nights at all but I have learned to adapt.

Our state sent everyone new licenses this year by mail to comply with the new BS requirements. What a waste of money and resources. However, UT is great that you get most things done by mail and as far as governments go it is relatively unobtrusive. Upgrade was free.Click to expand…
That’s odd, neither myself or my husband were sent new licenses. I wonder if they are up for renewal this year . . .Click to expand…
No, they just showed up randomly in the mailJuly 25, 2019 at 2:12 pm MST in reply to: flying with drivers license/public service message #233520
Wow, honestly having a bigger house myself I do not see how this can cost 1mil. Something is not adding up. He could probably take the house down and rebuild it for less than that. Nice thing is the bank owns most of the house at this point, pass the hot potato on to them.
