Only a matter of time till KPMG reduces it to match the other big 4 😜 jk. I think it makes sense though for our work. Many doctors and airlines won’t let you fly after 36 weeks (obviously pre covid) so it makes sense for traveling consultants to get 4 weeks off. My worst nightmare would be having a baby on the plane 😬

Contact hr and they will give you the forms. Your doctor just needs to sign them. They give you 4 weeks pre your due date. Keep in mind during std you will be responsible for your health insurance and will need to pay directly to bswift. This shouldn’t be hard, but was a nightmare for me. I spent over 8 hours on the phone with them bc they messed it up so bad, so just stay on top of it.

You pay your portion that is normally deducted from the paycheck, as well as the portion KPMG usually contributes so it ends up being more than what is typically deducted. You pay it directly to bswift which is this agency that pays it to the insurance company.

A partner sometimes cuts my time for review and study of medical records. He’s practiced for years and easily comprehends the language but sometimes I wonder if his expectations are reasonable.

Hi all, I realize this isn’t a medical community but would still appreciate insights. I started Trintillix for anxiety / depression but ultimately insurance wouldn’t cover it. I switched to Wellbutrin and didn’t feel anything. I also now need to get off Wellbutrin because of some other medical things. What successes have people had for anxiety / depression? I have a history of eating disorders so really won’t take anything that might make you gain weight. Realize this is a tall order, but TIA.

It's like, can you pretend to care just a little?
