I make 55 per home visit, but I donn't have to travel an hour to make visits, and many of my patients live relatively close to each other. I don't get gas money reimbursed.

I currently work as an OT for a home health care agency on salary. I make 42 an hour and work 40 hours. We are being pushed to move to per visit now. We cover a very large area and I am the only OT. The current offer is 55 per visit. I think I need to ask for more since some days I have visits that are nearly an hour away. Does anyone currently get paid per visit in home care that would share with me where they are and what they make. Thanks sooo much for your help

Hi there! So I'm curious to what you settled for. I'm and OTR as well and just have been offered a contract job for a new homecare company. I will have to travel and they pay per visit. What would be a fair rate to ask for?

Thanks for your time!

Hi Everyone
I am looking to change from SNF to Home health.
Can some one give me an idea how much to negotiate for per visit OT rate and per visit eval rate for full time pay per visit. I am from North Carolina.

All help will be appreciated.

Do you work for a small company? I currently am at 65 per visit. I used to get an extra 10 dollars per discharge Oasis but they stopped paying that out. Was just curious.

If a full time OT, Does anyone get paid more for assessments (new required by Medicare), discipline discharges, and eval? If so, what are the current rates?

Also, What are current rates for above as PRN?

The goal/productivity standard is usually 5-6 visits per day, though that can be lower on some days depending on caseload. This is for full-time/part-time positions. If you're working PRN then it's up to you. Some people just see one or two people in the afternoons after their regular jobs for extra cash. If your patients lived close together, you may be able to 7/day but I find it very taxing to get 6/day.

Home care is very stressful. There is tons of paperwork/ computer work. I've worked for current agency for 15 years and it has gotten worse. Home Care is often a 7 days a week job. You're out there by yourself and often the other staff are not team players.

Help please. I'm starting in home health as a new grad, and I've been given an offer of $48/eval and $45/revisit. It comes with health and dental, reimbursed mileage, and vacation and sick time. Is this reasonable considering I don't have experience? The per visit rate seems really low. What would be considered fair?

BeauShmeau,
Those rates are very low (with or without any benefits) -- I think they're taking advantage of you because you're a new grad and don't know any better. $45-48 would be a reasonable hourly rate for an OTR in a SNF but per visit will be too low considering each visit takes more than an hour when you add in drive time, scheduling, paperwork, etc. Honestly, I know COTAS in the area that make $50 to $55 a visit in home health. This company is either playing you for a fool or doesn't know which way is up. You should get at least $70 or more for an eval and $60 or more for a revisit. Without benefits, I expect at least $80 for an eval, $70 for revisits. It's best to negotiate a higher pet visit rate and go without the benefits. If you're taking benefits there's liable to be a quota of visits per day for you to meet. In this situation you'll get taken advantage of -- you'll be driving to 4 different counties and working 12 hours to meet your 6-visit quota before you know it (and only getting paid $48 a visit at that). It's a bad deal. I'm sorry if I sound harsh but this seems really out of line. Good luck to you!

I am thinking of switching from school OT to HH. This comment I am replying to has me worried. What do other people say? I would work PRN while my kids are in preschool. Is it really stressful? How many visits could I really get in a 5.25 hour time frame? is the paperwork really a ton?

How long are the average visits? Do assistants usually have a higher visit requirement (due to less paperwork)?
