They do not pay you travel time to or from your pts. They only allow you a 10 mile per week allowance to take your pt to Dr or store etc.
BUT ONE VIP THING TO LOOK AT : MAKE SURE YOUR INSURANCE POLICY DOESNY HAVE AN EXCLUSION AS USING YOUR CAR AS A PUBLIC TRANSPORT (taking a pt places IS CONSIDERED PUBLIC TRANSPORT!!) It can cost you LOTS OF MONEY AND YOUR INSURANCE CAN DROP YOU!

We should be getting pay mileage between clients. After all we are the ones running for one side of town to another.

No they do not unless you are taking the client somewhere during your shift.

You are not paid mileage to go to a client's home. However, you are paid mileage for any errands you run with your client. You must declare your mileage the week it is incurred in order to get reimbursed and you are paid at much greater mileage rate than the IRS requires of employers to pay.

I worked here and never got paid for taking the client anywhere. So little is explained to you about policy's and procedures and then they will yell at you for not doing things properly . Even though your doing exactly what they said to do..they will still say your wrong..I'm very unhappy with my experience at this company.

No mileage paid from your house to the clients, only when driving between clients. Also you get paid when you drive them to an appt or go run errands for the client, it is very little though.

They only pay mileage if you are running an errand for your client, or going straight from one clients home to another's. And it's not much.
