In Reply to: Can anyone give my any info on Med-Scribe in Florida? - WMT
I started at MedScribe 3 months ago and things have been going along quite well. The people seem to care and I like my account, this is such a change from the rather large company I left to work for MedScribe. I just signed up for the healthcare benefits, all of the paperwork arrived as promised and on time. I hope that helps.

anyone work for Medscribe
Good bad any help you can give. Co I just switched to is getting crappy fast. Tired of playing games...Any info appreciated like platform, phone or internet, you know the standard stuff
MedScribe ER work
keep my line count around 225-250 per pay period, with the bonus they pay that equals about $19 - $20/hr. I previously worked for a much larger company typing acute care work and never made that much. They are nice people and are bringing on more work. Maybe typing ER work is not for everybody but I have bills to pay and enjoy the steady pay.
Medscribe, anyone work there..sm
or know anything about them? I don't care about insurance as I already have that. I'm mostly interested in how much they pay and if they have enough work. I've been an MT for over 11 years and do not want to waste the time taking the test to find out they only pay 6 or 7 cpl.
Any other info about platform, QA, etc. would be much appreciated. Basically anything anyone knows and would be willing to share other than insurance info would be great.

I would normally give you a thumbs-up for this company, as I have always liked working for them, but I've been having a real problem with a lack of work lately. I'm not going to speculate on the reason because I really have no clue. That's about all I can say for now, as if there is a lack of work, the other info is moot, IMO.
Does ne1 work for medscribe and do you like them?
Do you work for medscribe and if so do you like them?
MedScribe is running out of work!
Please do not be fooled by MedScribe asking for acute-care MTs. I have worked for them for 2 years and it has been a rollercoaster ride. Either too much work or not enough and lately it has just been not enough work. I don't believe any MTs would want to make 1200.00 a month when I have the ability to transcribe 250 lines/hour.
DON'T BE FOOLED
Georgia girl must work for medscribe!!
Because you make no sense and you aren't being helpful. The company gives bad accounts so it's hard to make quota and then calls and berates the typists. How is that the typists' fault? duhhhh DUHHH... the typist is leaving and just passing on the info
Look 4 posts down regarding nosedive in work at MedScribe....
I don't work there so I don't know what's going on. I just remembered the post 4 down from yours inquiring about an apparent nosedive in workload.
MedScribe, anyone work for this company that is willing to share your opinion???
I just tested and sent my resume, but I'm in the process of looking at several companies and trying to sort things out. ty
Does MedScribe in Florida do clinic work and/or hire
Sorry I forgot to mention I work for Keystrokes..never worked for Medscribe (nm)
Anyone work for MedScribe? How are they to work for...sm
Can you send in QA? Is their pay reasonable? Are they flexible? Alot of downtime? Reimbursement for internet? Special equipment?
That's MEDSCRIBE, sorry. nm
BEware of Medscribe......... Listen to this.......I've had Susan interviewing and calling me for three months on an Editor position at $17/hr. Well, after being told I did NOT get the job (even tho I was never tested), she had the nerve to call me back a week later and said the job reopened and she wanted me for it. I tried calling her and leaving messages for three days. She never returned my calls. I finally got ahold of her and she had the NERVE to tell me that the original person changed their mind and took back the position? Did anyone ever hear of this? So to all of you out there.......stay clear of Susan!!!!
SM, Yes it is all about me....it is about how all of us as potential hires should be treated. Besides, Ms. L did not even test for the QA position.....so the question is, was there really a position????
No, I'm sure she thinks ONLY about what is good for her not caring about how she plays around with other people. Sorry, but I don't have to take this kind of treatment and let her know it.
They're not the only one I've been working with one here in Canada and the same thing. I thought maybe it was me that was wrong but that's what they did too..mind you we got $1.50 to put up with it and work ha work we did or at least me!!!!
What's the story with these people? I tested before Christmas and never heard back (I know I did well). Today they didn't answer an Email. Should I keep on truckin'?
Things can change a lot in FOUR YEARS. I cannot imagine they would have been able to keep up that practice and still be around today. Maybe a person should simply ask them about the incident four years ago; you'd have nothing to lose and as an applicant, I would think they would HAVE to tell the truth about it. The problem is sometimes just ONE incident can get out of hand, repeated a little differently, and a different story could come out other than the real story. I'm not saying your friend didn't get paid. I'm just saying NO company could get away with this kind of protocol and still be in business.

anyone have a clue why Medscribe is constantly advertising for MTs?
I don't know why, but whenever I post about this company it is not able to be found in the archives. I have posted many times about how miserable I was while working there. I didn't trust their line counter but I think worst of all was the way the talked down to me and scolded me for not making line counts which by the way... i normally could do but their accounts are MOSTLY re recorded and very VERY bad ESLs.... on top of a faulty line counter.
I did three weeks with them. Only filling in headers, sent to office where THEY input the macros (which we did not get paid for doing, of course) and I think I averaged about $3 per hr. A friend of mine got stiffed for her paycheck and they got threatened with illegal interstate activity because they were doing their business over state lines via phone. She got her money but it tooks MONTHS. This was a couple of years ago, but I don't think they've changed. Stay away from this place. The owner is a classical jerk.
I am interested hearing about your experiences there. I read the story about the gal who had to sue to get paid, and before I went to work there, I asked about it. They denied it vehemently, but in the proceeding 4-6 months, I had 2 checks that went missing. I really do not know if it was the fault of the post office or not, but I was not impressed. I also am not very impressed by the support system in place at this point, but would rather dish that privately.
I have been considering other employment because I always meet my minimum line count, and my quality scores seem to average in the 98% range, and I rarely take time off, but having only worked for HealthScribe (which I would almost take back right now) and MedScribe, I really don't know what a good company looks like. I am pretty specific at this point about what I want in a company, but it seems like they tell you what you want to hear and is not necessarily true.
Does anyone work for Medscribe and if so, can I get some feedback - considering working with them. Thanks.
Anybody working for MedScribe? If so, how do you like it?
I have never heard of this company. Where are they located?
Hope you find out the information that you need.
I would if i did have some!
Does anyone have info on medscribe out of NJ? there seems to be one in Florida but would really like to know if anyone has experience with medscribe in NJ. Thank you in advance.
Wow. I was just about to apply because their ad sounded good. I read the archives and realize I sidestepped a mess. I want to thank all of you for coming together and sharing your experiences so that others are forewarned.
Archives stuff is old, old. Sounds good - 12 hour time period to work. Please, anyone know anything?
MedScribe does only pays between 7 and 7.5 cpl full-time IC. There is an incentive bonus plan in place (if you are full-time) where if you fullfull all of your line commitments it is another 0.08 cpl, and they will place an additional 0.05 cpl for CMT status.
A family policy will run you more like $195 per week (dental and vision extra)for the $500 deductable plan.
I like it at MedScribe
So far so good, little over 6 months. Happy with the line rate and the insurance, my supervisor is very nice too. They must have added some accounts because I have heard they are hiring right now. I have not worked for the other 2 companies you mentioned, but did come from a rather big company and I like that I can call MedScribe and reach someone. Hope that helps.
Hello. Does anyone know if MedScribe in Jacksonville, FL, is a good company to work for? Also, on another note, have "they" decided to drop the hypen from "well-developed, well-nourished?" Thanks. LLD
I have been with MedScribe
they have been a fine company to work for. I liked the training and support from my supervisor is professional. I also came from a previous company that issued checks, so now having direct deposit is a blessing in my life. They are OK by me, I hope that helps. Good luck to you. Karen.
Anyone willing to share Medscribe's acute care line rate and what their average LPH are working at Medscribe? Thanks.
I started with MedScribe about 7 months ago and so far so good. They have a 12-hour window to do your work within, but that is for acute care work only I was told. The sign-on bonus is paid out $100 a pay period once you get out of training and up to speed, so that was nice too. I have seen emails where they are starting a new hospital account, maybe they are hiring. Hope that helps.
Sorry for the confusion. I should have been more careful before posting. It is Medscribe, FL.
I started with them almost a year ago, platform is easy to learn and you can use normals and templates for ERs, plus you are paid for all of them. I have the healthcare only, did not take the dental or vision as I pay that myself, but the medical is a nice policy.
Very happy there and like the flexibility. Hope this helps.
Medscribe FL - please
any relatively recent comments. ** I KNOW** I can search archives, but I would like some fresh input. Thanks in advance.
I have been with MedScribe for
I always have work in my account pool, they are super friendly and I like the direct deposit every other Friday. Big difference from chasing checks where I came from. I may also add you do not need a second phone line, the platform is all Internet. Karen.
The platform is easy to learn and the training is very good. I type ERs and they do ask for a schedule, but they worked with my needs and we came up with something that worked for both of us and I am quite happy. Benefits are about $37 a week and they are good, very low deductable. Pay is direct deposit and I have had plenty of work, good line count. I use InstaText and it converted right over so that made me happy too. Good luck, I hope that helps.
for me, I like the people and my primary gives me a good line count. Insurance is not too expensive and we get paid vacation and holiday pay. Good luck in your search.
MedScribe is 35 hrs
I think it is only the IC contracts, we have 20% of our contract on weekends, anytime. The remainder can be done during the week. Plenty of work, we have a national account that adds new hospitals and I know they are hiring. Nice people in the Jax office if you ever need help with your computer or anything.
Can you tell the usual - good/bad experiences? I appreciate all input. Thanks!
Medscribe FL MTs
Can you tell me if weekend work is required at Medscribe as well as any other info like flexibility with hours, etc? TIA.
