$15 a what?!?

Tifany, MSN, APRN, FNP-C


I have been in the telemedicine game for a couple of years now.

And I have become very familiar with the pros and cons of working for big telemedicine companies instead of starting your own.

Honestly, I believe some amazing telemedicine companies treat NPs very well.

However, most of them do not.

And it starts with the disrespect that comes with offering us $15 per patient.

OMG! Where do I even start?

I mentioned this on my page a few days ago, and one NP said she choked on her wine.

Yes! That's how horrible $15 per patient sounds.

And you know what's worse?

$15 is on the high end.

I get offers from companies that want to pay me $7-$10 per patient.

And the more the demand for these jobs...

The less the rates go.

Okay, so what?

You'll be working from home... you can do this part-time... and it's much easier than working a full-time job.

But if you go down this route...

You're only creating another job for yourself...

Because an organization controls your freedom...

You can't take days off without putting in a request...

And you’ll make around the same amount per patient in your full-time job.

So, what's the point?

What's the point of being another warm body filling a position and getting poorly compensated for it? Yuck!


The average amount I make per patient is around $200

But when you subtract expenses, it's about $75-$150 profit.

So, if someone is offering you $15 per patient... and you want to add an extra $5k/m on the side.

You have to see 333 patients per month.

But if I or my students want to add an extra $5k/m on the side.

We only have to see about two patients a day...

Because we make atleast five times more per patient.

See what I mean?

Don't limit yourself, .

You have the potential to do more... and $15 per patient will not cut it.

the math is not mathing
