Podcast on Physician Employment Contracts

Join Our Mailing List


By Dennis Hursh, PAHealthLaw.com

In this podcast episode, we are talking to Dennis Hursh, a physician focused attorney. In today’s interview, Dennis reveals why he tells his clients:

  • The standard physician employment agreement is a mythical creature
  • Don’t sign a letter of intent intending on changing the terms when you sign the employment contract
  • Don’t be afraid to negotiate – if they’ve made an offer to you, they are serious and usually will negotiate
  • The meek may inherit the earth, but they rarely obtain the best compensation packages.

    A frightful screed on MD employment contracts by a physician; not an attorney.

    Collective Health and Harris Poll recently conducted a survey on employee perspectives on employer-sponsored health insurance. Here are some key findings from the report:

    • When deciding on a new job, 78% said healthcare benefits would factor into their decision.
    • 57% said they would not take a job with a company that didn’t offer competitive healthcare benefits.
    • Among employed Americans, 60% are unprepared for an out-of-pocket medical expense of $5000.
    • 63% of employed Americans are confused by health benefit options available to them.
    • 3 in 5 U.S. adults have been confused by a bill they’ve received from a healthcare professional.
    • 70% of parents with a child in the home said they were confused versus 57% without a child.
