cont'd.- PTA's also cannot be Independent Contractors, they must be W2 employees (taxes withheld). A PTA making $75k or more is working long hours and driving a lot of miles. There are opportunities for geriatric, ortho, and pediatrics in home health, we do all three. When it comes to choosing a company, there are several factors to consider. You can work directly for a home health agency(HHA), but they typically don't have a lot of "in-house" therapist support - although you will have a PT supervisor for clinical, you may be reporting to a nurse or non-clinician for everything else. Some HHA staff do not understand the unique issues or needs when treating a patient, or they might be making decisions based solely on financial motive, not patient care. The home health industry is rampant with fraud - and some therapists are pressured to go along, treat patients who do not meet the Medicare or Medicaid guidelines, or treat more patients in a day than would allow for quality treatment. There are some HHA's who have very stable, quality in-house staff who deliver excellent care and have a good work environment. There are contract therapy companies like ours that contracts with multiple HHA's. We provide benefits and compensation equal to or better than most hospitals or other settings. When working for a contract company a therapist does not have the risk of non-payment by an HHA and does not have undue pressure from HHA staff to compromise quality or ethics. The HHA industry is the most volatile industry in terms of reimbursement, stability of companies, and fraud - so beware. Do your homework and ask other therapists their experience with a potential employer. It's predicted 1200 agencies will close in 2012. Ask the employer what the average tenure is of therapists - we have many who have been with us 10-15 years and plan to retire with us!

My advice to you, is if you are looking to make alot of money this is really not the profession for that. You can make a good living but it is really about patient care!!

bluelineman in Aubrey, Texas said: Hello. I am a PTA with 18 yrs experience currently working in hospital outpatient clinic. I am looking at a local private home health company to go with full time. They offered me $53K full time, 25-30 visits a week, anything over 60 visits a pay period (2 weeks) gets PRN rate, use their car (not take home) & gas, no 401K, owner will pay part of my portion of the medical & all dental, 8 paid holidays, paid time off.

I got offered 60K last year from a company that never panned out. I wish I could find the paperwork to show him. I'm thinking of telling the owner of the concerns I have (no 401K, will pay more for medical ins) to see if he's willing to bump up the salary.

What would be a reasonable salary? I'm thinking of asking for $57K. The location is about 50 miles north of Dallas. Thanks!

I'm working as a part time PTA in home health-Oregon. Supposed to be a 32-hour work week, with 4 patients a day but the census varies and I rarely meet that. I was making just under $30 an hour but am now being forced into pay per visit at $42 per patient. Going to be a big financial hit for me. Probably made mid-$40s last year.

At the home health company where I work a PTA typically makes more than an RN. RN is much more versatile of a career field. They also have more opportunities for extra work, can work any shift, setting, etc. They also have a better career ladder, RN > nurse practitioner, RN > CRNA, etc. The APTA has made it very clear that in their opinion PT & PTA are two different careers, they are (in my opinion) not pro-PTA & do not go to bat for us. Don't get me wrong, I like being a PTA but these are some big issue things to consider that some people might not know.

Wow! When I was doing PRN work a few years ago it paid on average $50/visit. Can you also work somewhere else to make up the difference in lost income?

bluelineman,

I believe Texas still pays about $50/visit from people I've talked to. Here in South Florida, I've seen $35 to $40 per visit PRN. It really depends on location, i.e. demand/supply. As the PTA field gets more saturated, it will probably pay less and less. In some states, it pays even less, like $25/visit, cause there's no demand.

Katie Johns in Midlothian, Virginia

32 months ago

I have been a pay per visit Home Health PTA for 20 years in a rural Virginia area and Iove what I do. I am currently seeing pts for 4 different agencies and weekly visit numbers have ranged anywhere from 15 to 40. My best income was around 75,000 2 yrs ago and I have been getting 50.00 a visit for about 5 yrs now. I am considering going full time (average of 30 visits a wk) with the agency I have been with the longest ( about 12 to 13 years). This includes usual full time benefits which is something I do not have being PRN. Any ideas on what to ask for based on yearly salary?
Thanks for your help!!

Of course make sure & get your territory, mileage & productivity nailed down first. As far as salary, around here I'd expect anywhere between $35-37/hr.

Well, it depends on who you are working with (PT). I'm a 24 y/o PTA in NE Texas. You make the most by contracting with different agencies, if you want to make really good money. I make $60 per visit and do about 40-50 visits per week. Doesn't include insurance and all that, but if you're single, it's pretty good :)

I'm a PTA with 15+ years of experience in acute, rehab, and OP settings. I am considering a part time job with a company, but they do not take taxes out. I'm a bit nervous because I have never done contract work before. Any PTA's doing contract work now that could give me some advice?

Set aside 1/4-1/3 of the money in a savings account for tax time. If you have money left over after paying taxes consider it a bonus.

Jon in Ocala, Florida said: My agency uses a tablet for documentation and it takes me 5 mins to finish notes for 1 patient which I am able to complete while in the patient's house. Dogs? I always refuse patients with dogs in the house, and I always refuse patients who live in unsafe neighborhood. My agency does not have a problem with therapists refusing certain patients.
Maybe because they are having a hard time hiring good therapists these days, or just therapists in general .

Hey Jon I'm gong into PTA school and when I finish I want to move to Florida to possibly a home health care company. Souls I start in a clinic first the go to home health care? Is it worth it? Any advice would help thanks!

I am not John but I am going to tell you YES, you need to have experience before going into home health. I would suggest acute care in a hospital or skilled nursing due to the fact that the population you will be dealing with are medically fragile. I had 2 years of OP and acute care before I even considered jumping into HH.

NOT SURE WHERE TO GO!
Hello everyone. I've been a PTA for eighteen years with a 6 year ownership in a couple of clinics in south Florida. I had two partners which was absolute hell. I sold my shares to them. I own a home in Pompano Beach, FL, rented it out and moved to Ocala, FL for other reasons and there are NO jobs to be found! No outpatient, SNF's or HH jobs around. I certainly do not want to move back to south Florida. I'm currently licensed in FL, NC, TN and recently TX. I need to make as much money as humanly possible and live cheap at the same time. In Florida, a PTA can make $35/hr in a SNF and about $35/visit in Home Health. I've been told by various recruiters that I can make as much as $45/hr working in a desert town in Texas. I don't know if they're telling the truth or not. I welcome working in a SNF or doing Home Health. From what I'm seeing, Florida is getting pretty much dried up with PTA jobs. I'd go back to NC, which is where I'm from, but there is a state income tax. Texas, FL and TN do not have state income taxes. So...I'm not sure where to go or do HH/SNF. I have great skill, I'm VERY productive and people love me because of my personality. I kinda depressed right now, so I'm gonna go eat some chocolate!

Texas has lots of jobs. I am near Dallas & constantly get calls, stuff in the mail etc for jobs. I have 22 years experience & make $37.13/hr in home health. I am full time & get full benefits, mileage, etc.. I am up for a raise this month. For PRN home health visits you can get @ $50/visit easily. The cost of living is low & like you said there's no state income tax. I think SNF pays about the same.

Being an independent contractor allows you to have the freedom of using Schedule C when doing your taxes. More room for write-offs including mileage. Even better...incorporate yourself, i.e., starting your own company. I'd advise you to do a "LLC". Have the Home Health agency pay your company and then your company pays you. You can set your own salary and then take the remaining monies as a K-1 distribution. You pay no self employment taxes on your distributions. Cool, huh?

Darrin Taylor in Houston, Texas said: In the Houston Area most of the solicitations I get are ranging from $45-$50 a visit. I have, so far, not taken anyone up on these offers due to the reports from other therapists I know who are putting alot of time in on paperwork which is not compesatated time. I also have some concerns about what the agency will be responsible for in the event of an incident in the home such as a dog bite. One company I talked to, Encompass said they rely on the owner to tell them if their dog is up to date on shots. They could not satisfy me if I got bitten would I be taken care of as far as rabies treatment. Here in Houston I know an OT who works in neighborhoods where she will place a call to a friend or agency or police dept before she enters the home and says if I don't call be in X amount of time please assume something has happened to me and send help to this address.
Hope this helps

45-50 per visit? is this 1099, or do they take out taxes? any mileage reimbursement?
or 45-50 per visit as an independent contractor?

Maybe you got your answer... if it were me and I was LMT, I would take all of John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Classes and go that route... you'll have people breaking your door down! I'm a PT for 20 years now and recently left corporate America to do JFB MFR (above) and love it! I'm finally helping people! You've already got the license to touch, now, just get the training that works! Good luck!
