Not easy. You’d have to have a specialty that is a transferable skill. There’s some overlaps between the industries so the more transferable skills the better.

Yep, this would be a Senior Manager role

Fairly easy if we are talking about non-clinical roles

Hi everyone, I'm reviewing an offer and I'd like to get an idea of your current benefits packages:

How much premium ($) do you pay PER check for:
Medical $ (mine: is $80-$102 too much?)
Dental $ (is $15-$22 too much?)

Does your role offer annual bonus? How much %?

Last month, HR told me I needed to fill out FMLA for 2 medical issues I have. I got 1 doctor to do the paperwork but not the other.

I thought HR only needed to know about the FMLA absences? I’ve never had to have my general doctor appointments approved before. Is this something I have to disclose?

*Medical Records Requests / Reducing Expenses / HITECH*
I recently left my corporate paralegal role to return to a small personal injury firm. I was shocked to learn that the HITECH fee no longer applies if a client requests their medical records be sent to a third-party (e.g. attorney). Has anyone had any success modifying their HITECH request template for clients so there IS a fee limitation AND the records are sent directly to their attorney? Paying $100+ for hospital records is sickening.
