Okay, I've checked the archives on this company and I am coming up with both good and bad.  They've offered me a job and the pay is more than anybody else has offered. What does anybody know about their internet-based platform called Med Write (spelling?) XL?  Please tell me what you know and help me make an informed decision.  Thanks to you all for your input.

How is this company to work for?  Do they have good benefits, pay, dictators?  How is the management and communication?
I worked for them for a short time and it was awful. The accounts were not as wonderful as they made them out to be and if you don't do exactly what they ask, they get nasty with you. I say keep looking.
Well, I have been here a few months and I honestly love it. Everyone is helpful and yes they are a bit picky, but it has been a great learning experience. Yes, work is slow in the beginning on the 5-report system, but it worked out great for me. To each her own ...
So, do they harrass you about not meeting quota? I really don't need benefits, but they did offer me a nice line rate. I know a few folks who are working there and are pretty happy. I just don't want to be constantly harrassed (I can stay at MQ for that :-)

Pays great if you can tolerate the *itchy office staff. Worked for them and left because of how they treat the people working for them. Too many Other great companies out there. Good luck!
Thanks for your comment but for my sake and one other MT who is considering, can you comment further on itchy staff? Sure would appreciate it.

It is extremely flexible. You submit a schedule to them weekly marking what times you will be working. You can work anytime of day/night/whatever. Full-time requirement is 12,000 payperiod (2 weeks). Not sure about part-time. They higher newbies and they pay is pretty good.
Do they hire part-time employees?  Do they pay more than 7 cpl to start?
I don't know if they hire PT, but they do pay more than 7 cpl.
Great company. Good pay, good QA, pay always on time. MedRite is easy to use, ESLs depend on the account, but not a high % of ESLs.
Could you e-mail me, please?  I would like to ask you some questions about this company, if you would be willing to talk to me.  Thanks!

Most of the accounts use Med Rite, easy platform, QA is good, they expect good work-2 weeks of paid training if needed, decent benefits, good company overall. 


I worked for them.  They have HORRID communication and don't treat emplyees well.  Feedback is all but ZERO.  There are better copmanies out there...
Cannot speak from experience, but just heard from 6 MT friends they are all promises until you are hired........then very, very rude, if not down right nasty!

If this is the same company, based out of Indianapolis, IN, it doesn't appear they have a website, however, it does appear that they are a member of the Medical Transcription Industry Association -


There is a valuable link - it lists all companies that are members as well as provides links to those companies with websites.

I am unimpressed as well. Very unprofessional.
I sent you an email!
JAG where are you from? Meridian here.. nm
Stay away from Meridian!
Anyone have experience with Meridian.  Good or bad?  I saw posts regarding the owner and negative QA experiences.
I have worked there well over a year - never a late paycheck. It's always in the bank shortly after midnight on payday.

I haven't found the perfect place to work, but Meridian is quite good.
I'm there, I'm glad I'm there, I can make good money, I have a flexible schedule, my managers are wonderful, QA is great, pay is always on time.  I've heard the stories about the manager.  I had one instance where she was rude to me, but that has been worked out.  The tech guy is iffie, too.  He knows his business, but sometimes he can be difficult to work with.  On the other hand, he can usually fix whatever it is that needs to be fixed.  There is no place that has 100% satisfied employees, but I'm satisfied and I'm happy.  If you know your job and do what you are supposed to, it can be a great place to work.

Does anybody have anything new on this company.  I heard a lot of bad things in the past about the manager. 

I noticed the contact person on the jobseekers board is a different name than usual.  Did the other person leave?

I have been with Meridian 3 years. I am always busy, get paid on time, good account, vacation. I don't use their insurance, so I cannot comment on it. The tech guy is a bit of a pain, but don't have to deal with him too often.

I can't speak for the other companies.
Has anyone worked for Meridian and did you like the company?
I currently work there and would recommend them. They offer great flexibility in scheduling. However, there is not a lot of communication between staff and MTs. They don't really provide any training, so if you are a new grad, I'd look elsewhere. QA staff are very nice.

Does anyone know anything about this company, good and bad?

I worked there and they put me on 2 accounts immediately, not good accounts and the QA was terrible.  Also they didnt pay me for my last check.  Not good company at all...
I have worked for them for about 6 months now and I love them. Great people to work with. QA staff really nice and helpful. Good pay and direct deposit always in on time. Great accounts also. Flexible shifts, just meet line counts. I think you would like it there.
Does anyone know if Meridian is still around? 
Meridian does VR.
It says on their home page that VR is part of their core strengths.
After having tested and interviewed, told I would start ASAP, two months later they finally got me started. They call you if you are two minutes late logging in, they take their time answering any questions. The sound quality on the account I was on was horrible, the dictators are horrible and the QA was never the same twice. I'd stay away if I were you.
Yes Its the same Meridian
It is the Meridian Healthcare in Indianapolis area. Yes, it WAS a fairly local acocunt. Yes, it is now gone. Yes, the boss was a real witch to me when I had been a great employee with great QA scores for over 3 years.

I was wondering if anyone can give me current information about Meridian out of Indy.  I am not finding very much current infomation and was curious to know how they are to work for, platform, what Expander program can be used, etc.  Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Meridian Healthcare

Meridian Healthcare used to be PTS. I worked for PTS, and we ran out of work a lot. There was very poor communication when I was there.  When work was low, manager wouldn't respond to emails or voice mail.

Hope that helps!

Any recent info on this company, good and bad, would appreciate hearing.  Thanks
What program is Meridian on?
I heard they use the old Medrite.  Is that true? 
Meridian Healthcare
stay away from meridian if you can
the work isn't reliable enough. sure we all run out of work, but on top of unsteady work the company hasn't been very ethical in the past. if you have another option, take it. check archives
I didn't see anything about Meridian in the
What did they do that was not very ethical in the past?
Meridian Healthcare
I have been with Meridian for about 6 months now. The account I am on uses MedRite and is a pretty busy hospital account. My pay is good, always right,and always on time. The QA staff is great - I have learned a ton from them.

I have to submit a schedule every week with what I plan to work the following week, but it hasn't been a problem when I need to stray from that.

Overall, I am very happy. The platform is great. The account is fairly easily, though it has a few really tough ESLs, I am getting used to them. I have been able to create a ton of normals, so I am pretty fast. My account requires 12,000 lines a pay period to be eligible for PTO.

Good luck!
Meridian Transcription - sm

Has anyone ever worked for this company? If so, how are they to work for? High percentage of ESLs?  I understand they use Medrite as their platform. Is it MT friendly? Any info would be appreciated.




Anybody work for Meridian?
Can anybody tell me about Meridian in Indianapolis? - is it a good platform, can you produce well on it, how is technical support, is QA reasonable or do they always have all the right answers, communication among transcriptionists?  All info good and bad would be appreciated.
Any info on Meridian HCS, sm

Before I go further into the hiring process with this company...  anyone have any experience with them?  I asked for the web site address so I could check them out, but I was told that it was down for the next 2 weeks.  Also, they sent a packet that talked at great length about patient and MD demographics that I would be responsible for.  I have never worked for a national company and not sure if this sounds okay.  Thanks.

Meridian here too. :) Hi neighbor!
I love Meridian
I have been with Meridian almost 2 years (as an MT, not QA) and I love it. Lots of work, very flexible. Email me if you want more info.
Meridian Healthcare

Does anyone currently work for this company or have you worked for them recently?  How is the pay?  Is the work acute care only?  What type of platform do they use?  Is there a minimum line requirement?

Thanks for any info.
