If you have other illnesses, possibility of getting turned down exists. Say kidney transplant. You have to be in basically good shape except for the kidney problem or else you might not be put on the waiting list.

but it is a free country. People ask questions all the time that
are best answered by a representative of the company in question.
I am actually having lapband surgery on
But, I am doing this through my husband's insurance. $100.00 copay is the cost to me. I wish you the best of luck because once you find an insurance that covers it, be sure to jump through all of their qualifying hoops or all will be lost.
I had abdominal surgery as well.
I was told there might be a problem, but only had problems with my umbilical stump which had to be closed because of closure and skin issues. Got infected. I had my legs done years ago and they are the bane of my existence as the technical aspects of the surgery have changed so much over the years. Nurses saved me from lousy physicians by taking me aside and telling me to not use so and so!! Thank God for networking. All in all am very happy I did all of it. I am sure I would be dead now had I not.
A local surgery center
I was referred to them through someone else. They have had trouble keeping a transcriptionist. Now I know why.
I think Usher's wife had surgery, let me think
some other country besides here, right and there are lots of people who have money who go out of the country to have surgery because the price elsewhere is so much lower than here. I have had loads of elective (plastic surgery) done and if I could afford the weeks to spend to recuperate there, I would have gone somewhere except here in order to get the work done, much less costly.
If it's the one that advertised here in Dec. w/the surgery acct., she's not hiring right now.
Anybody work on the outpatient surgery center at e-MTS?
Interested in knowing what the account's like, i.e. platform, dictators, productivity, et cet. Tx.
I do hospital work, do heart surgery, etc.
but donít do the caths and glad of it. They have others specifically for that. I do all other reports including ops, discharges, consults and the histories and such.
Don't know scheduling, but she emailed me saying they hire only FT and have no surgery accts. at
Anyone know what co is running the ad for the several hospitals & surgery centers on the job board?
Did anyone start with VitalType doing plastic surgery files?
Thanks, I am talking about CABGs and general heart surgery, which all of my
Does anyone know if Wedmedx insurance covers bariatric surgery? nm
Must be another country, I have not
heard of anything at all like this and I try to catch all news, not just local.
What area of the country are you in?
They are outsoucing to Trinidad and Guyana, with others coming very quickly.
moving to the country
I'm moving to the country and will not have broadband or DSL available for who knows how long. I have not been in this situation before and would like to know if any of you know of any companies that do not require either of these - I will have access to dial-up and possibly some sort of high-speed that is brought in by a radio receiver on the top of my house. It's a good move - just maybe not a good move for an MT - any help with companies that do not require high-speed with cable or dsl would be appreciated.
and what country are you writing from?
There are plenty of MTs in this country
who WANT to work - and guess what? The work is not as plentiful as it was because of people like you who choose to support the economy of a foreign country rather than your own country. So, when all the US jobs are gone as you stated, it will be YOU who helped it happen, not us.
I understand what you mean, Country Mt,
and I'm sorry that we can't all agree to disagree instead of acting like dogs attacking each other.
It's absolutely ridiculous that grown women feel it necessary to act the way some folks on here do.
Just know you're not alone in your opinion.
Country MT, you need to move - to
You are absolutely right. Also he is from a country
My fault for staying for so long. I also stayed in a relationship which he said was situational stress, and when I got out he thought I should have stayed. I guess that was my fault too... I am going to a woman soon, but I already changed my job to a good one which I know will take care of me. So, I guess I solved problems without a shrink... how to wean off the nerve pills... or not! LOL.
how do you get calls from "all over the country" sm
if you don't advertise or anything? Wow, you must be out of this world!
Work is going to India or some other country. nm
depends on part of country - I will take pay cut. sm
I'm an MT x10 years, great for growing family. Now that kids are in school going back for BSN (R.N. plus bachelors combined). Husband thinks I'm crazy. I make $55,000+ as an MT because of production + incentive. I transcribe 300+ lph and have an excellent line rate with a national.
I'm in the midwest, so as a BSN who does not get paid more than RNs here, I will take a huge pay cut, to the order of about $15,000 a year less. Why am I doing it, because I want to be a nurse practitioner or a P.A. eventually and want to love what I do - that will be more money in the long run too with the higher degree. I like being an MT, but working from home has turned me into a fat, lazy person who does nothing but type because it's easy money for me since I know the lingo and am well educated, plus I can type fast.
If you want to be a nurse, as another poster said - don't do it for the money, do it because you feel in your heart it is what you are meant to do because it is a very, very demanding job that requires a great deal of knowledge and skill.
Are all of their accounts out of CA or spread across the country? TIA (NM)
Does Transcend outsource out of country?
I was told when I was hired that their editing is for VR. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
I know for a fact they offshore, what country I don't know.
In an interview a team leader let slip that they offshored and that is was the good stuff that was offshored.
Try a board in a third-world country
because it sounds like that is who is left working for them.
And the jobs will then be shifted to another country.
It will always be about the almighty dollar and companies will always be able to find someone in the world who will outbid American MTs.
Our whole COUNTRY is full of complete
Not my responsibility to develop their country
It stands to reason if they built their own hospitals, which they could easily staff with all the Indian ESL dictators we currently struggle with (while we hand them the moneymaking easy ones on a silver platter), they then could do their own transcription for their own healthcare providers. Why the heck won't big business invest in building them some of their own hospitals? Because this is about profit, NOT altrusim for our fellow man!
Maybe you're going to retire in a couple of years, so you don't really care about the future of this industry. But if not, when you lose your current job to outsourcing, will you still deny there's a problem? Or will you take another job for less pay, again and again, until the industry completely leaves this country - then will you realize there's a problem? When you are forced out of this industry, and find the competition for other types of work is harder than it used to be, will you see a problem then?
Its not just this industry being outsourced. I grew up in Michigan! Its turning into a ghost state due to loss of jobs to outsourcing. That's an example of an entire state being affected, and its only one of many in the rust belt. But I guess you don't know anybody there, so you'd rather sympathize with someone halfway across the world. It is not ok to undevelop our country in order to develop others. Maybe when our homeless shelters overflow and our streets are full of beggars, and every undeveloped company has cable TV and McDonalds on every corner, we'll quit being in denial at what we are allowing to happen under our very noses. But by then it'll be too late for us to reverse this trend of trying to raise the rest of the world's standards at the expense of our own.
It's a free country. My son is currently fighing to
keep it that way.
At least Ireland is a country we could consider moving to.
Sorry, but not according to one of the largest financial insitutions in this country.
They totally disagree with what you say. I have talked to them in depth
I wish the majority of sheeple in this country would wake up and
see the reality, but they won't until it's too late.
Which nationals do not send work out of the country?
Which nationals do not send work out of the country? I need to find another job.
The wealthy elite are running this country.
And they would prefer that your money be in THEIR pocket. They will share as much as they have to and no more.
Gorgeous horse country right outside of Philly!
Google areas near New Bolton Medical Center in Pennsy. If country is up your alley, there are lots of great towns. If you like cities, then Philly is for you! Go EAGLES!!
Doesn't matter what their country of origin is, - sm
if they are now Americans and working in the U.S. If that is the case, they ARE American transcribers! But even though our compnies that hire them are paying U.S. taxes (though probably less than they should, becuse of loopholes), are offshore employees paying U.S. Social Security and other taxes out of their wages? NO. So it undermines our economy in that way, as well.
Keystrokes is and will not send work out of the country. sm
The owners feel strongly about that.
No I didnt see that, is there anything this country values anymore SM
and is willing to pay other than tech stuff? I know my son went to college for graphic design and he doesnt make much.
Reading about how other country handled this, hmmmm
just on Entertainment Tonight they were telling about some pretty raunchy things, for example saying body found in net hose and other items that maybe should be left alone. It is not just other country giving out information, better look at our country also. Some of the weekly tabloids get things like this and run with it.
offshore (out of country) to India ... not outsource.
Sorry, but I used to work at one of the largest financial institutions in this country.
Thank you very much. Unless you have proof in your hand that the deposit was supposed to go in on a certain date, DO NOT go writing checks and spending money without that proof because stuff happens.
Unfortunately, the country seems headed toward rich, or poor, period.
sort of like, anyone not rich has to conform to the mentality that ...we are only working for the good of everyone else.
MT is not the only profession. it seems to be eroding through our entire society like wild fire. you best not have a good opinion of your self or worth, because you will be whipped back into believing you are only lucky to have a job.
heartless. whoever is in charge of this country or in the trend is heartless. any companies that were good, and there were a few, are claiming they now need to compete with lower wages and better technology, all of which we have to suck up, not the owners.
mostly I hear women with that mentality, that martyr-type attitude. we shoud just work like dogs, expect nothing but our sweat-shop pay, keep our mouths shut, and just be glad for any scraps a company wants to throw at you.
these companies love these women...and if it was not so sad, it would almost be funny to watch some of these women now, who are not even making what they made five years ago but are losing work, benefits, and pay. maybe they are happy because, hey, after all, we probably do not even deserve that, right?
None of the ones on the Job Seekers board send work outside the country. They
would not be allowed to advertise if they did.
Ditto that. If my info. leaves the country, I leave the doc. - nm
It depends on what part of the country you live; here in the Northeast sm
it is $18-$23 per hour.
I love the part where he says we have inadequate staffing in this country!
That makes me so mad - how many of us are sitting here waiting on work every day and he says we have inadequate staffing? That is BU!!$HIT!
Country clubs (SF Bay Area) are great but their dues are pricey
You may want to experience life outside of Northern California, in other states of the United States, and find out that you were brainwashed and deluding yourself into living in, as one of the TV news station there actually used to say The greatest place on earth. Everyone I know who has left has a higher standard of living. In particular, one who can't come to terms with leaving is only working part-time because she can't find full-time work. And let's not forget the people in Silicon Valley who work full time but still live in their cars.
