Is that $16 an hour with a masters??

Yes very underpaid. Probably not underpaid for that specific role, but you should be looking for much higher level jobs. Management/Director type roles. $16/hr will never pay you back for that masters degree!

Thats very low. If you can work at a hospital or insurance probably would be best

Oh my. Please look into insurance companies. There are so many positions you would be eligible for. As well as hospitals. You deserve so much more

What exactly is your job title? Or rather, job duties?

I ask because I have been in HIM in my current organization for about 5 years - Medical Records, Referrals, and now Population Health Coordinator. About to have my B.S in HIM. I have been consistently under paid in each of these roles. Currently making less than I should at $18.54. I would say if you are in medical record’s say as a clerk, then $16.69 is still low, but not grossly low for Louisiana.

However, you have a MHA so you should be in a Director’s position and salaried!!

smart

RHIA = HIM Director in any hospital setting. Your salary is definitely not commensurate with your skillset.

Sounds as though yes you deserve much more compensation especially with a Masters but I am curious about how much experience you can bring to the table. I always say that You may have super school smarts but do you have the street smarts to go with it. May need to just start building up that Resume to get more $$$ If I am wrong then time to find a place that will show you the money!

We pay our entry level Community Health Workers with no degree or up to a bachelors in public health a starting rate of $19.15/hr. It for sure sounds like you are severely underpaid.

Does anyone have financial anxiety ? I realize I have a toxic relationship with money, maybe because I just started my career (I’m 26yo). But when it comes to spending, I get anxious.

Health, moving/new apt, etc..) and be left with less money since I work so hard for it. How do you overcome this stress and anxiety ?

Im a little confused on whether to move forward or not. Any advise?

Hey Fishes,

If 23LPA is fixed i.e. 23Lakhs / 12 = 191667 rs/month

In this amount 12% of basic (employee + employer) will be deducted which comes around 18400/month

Amount remaining = 173267 / month.

Now in this how much tax will be deducted per month provided I have declared:

1. 150k under 80C
2. 35k medical insurance under 80D (25K FOR PARENTS + 10K self)
3. 38000 per month HRA (4.56L yearly)

Please tell me how much tax will be declared per month in this case and how i can save more tax.
