They pay 6 cents per line. I am training there in QA, but there are a lot of administrative details...
Ascend Healthcare?
Anyone care to share your experience with this company?
Ascend Healthcare info and suggestions

Any info out there on Ascend Healthcare? Any suggestions on a great company to work for when one is just looking for part-time IC status employment?

Company is not Ascend, but Ascend is
famous for not paying on time. 
Stay far away.
I believe that was Ascend who had that ad going. nm
Yea but Jay is really bad about this.  He's got a bad reputation.  I feel for your friend.
Was your friend an IC or employee? If IC, wage an hour won't help.
Does anyone working for Ascend have any info on them?  Thanks a lot.
I would appreciate information about Ascend.  Thank you.
Has Ascend management improved?
I worked for them several years ago.  The problem I had with them was bounced and late paychecks.  Last I heard, this was still a recurring issue with them.  Unless something has changed as of recent, it is a foreign-owned company as well.
Ascend anyone?
ANY information would be great before I apply. I saw some bad posts a while back, but has this cleared up or are they still foreign-owned and bouncing checks?
So Ascend paids on time now?
Any new information on Ascend?  Are they still having the same problems I've seen in the archives regarding pay issues?  Thinking about applying.  TIA.
I just accepted an offer with Ascend today!!! Do they pay or not???
I worked for them through last year as MT/Editor. Made $0.10 for STAT and $0.06 for editing. Pay on time, enough work but some tough accounts. I left because of family problems. No major problems.
Anyone here work for Ascend?
I know they outsource, have done a search and read the info there, but what's the scoop NOW? Thanks!
Ascend info

I need to the real specifics on this company before I accept their offer.  The pay they are stating is within reason.  Does their accounts consist of ESL doctors?  Does any of their paychecks bounce?  Please help, thanks.  Good bless the hurricane victims.

Can't swear but think she is with Ascend.
How 'bout Ascend?
What about Ascend?  I'm looking for a QA position.  How is the pay and how are the benefits?  I work for MQ now -- help me!!
Ascend feedback
Does anyone work for Ascend?  Love it?  Dislike it?
Ascend Company
Has anyone worked for the Ascend Company or know anything about them?
Ascend Payment
I am working for Ascend now for three uears. They have a policy of each 15 day pay period paid 15 days after the period is closed. If the disbursement date is on week end it will get delayed. I never had an issue and I average about $0.12 per line.

There are folks who do not complete their paperwork or do not submit their production data on time do get their pay delayed.

Ascend also gave me a loan last year and subtracted agreed upon installment from my earned wages.

I like working for them. Plenty of work, good pay.
Like Ascend. There is an off-shore
connection and the owner is ESL. 
Does anyone know how it is to work for Ascend?
They offered me a job.  Does anyone know anything about them?
SPI Healthcare Doc
I work there now and am very happy. Make a list of questions you have and when the supervisor calls you, make sure you ask them. That way you won't be misinformed by what you read on this board.
Welcome to Healthcare
Healthcare is a 24/7 industry. If you want to work Monday-Friday perhaps you should change jobs.
Any updated info on Ascend?
I know they have a good pay rate, but have they started paying their employees?
it's ascend -- DON'T DO IT. you'll hate it.
What happened to Ascend post?
I was watching a post from last week about Ascend, but now it's gone.......
Ascend is not the company being discussed
Any current ASCEND employees?
I would like to hear from any current Ascend employee.  How is the work and are they truly paying on time?  Do they have direct deposit?  Thanks!
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!

I heard they only hire ICs for MTs right now but will get employee and benefit package in near future. Payday is 15th and last day of the month. Scheduling is pretty flexible. Everyone I know there is pretty happy. Depends on which account you are assigned to about the extra phone line being needed. Some accts only require 1. Ask the recruiter any questions you might have for further info. Don't rely on this board for everything.
Meridian Healthcare
Need info on SPI Healthcare please.
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 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.

Presbyterian Healthcare?

My job is obviously losing the Presbyterian Healthcare System account.  This account is affiliated with Novant Health and is located in Charlotte,North Carolina.  Can anyone tell me who picked up this account and where to apply for a job.


Thank you

Healthcare and recession
we have an aging population, I know I'm one of them. Many actually have health benefits and will have Medicare. Healthcare is pretty recessionproof. Some of your slowdown may be due to the economy, but there is undoubtedly some change in management reason also. If people wait to see the doctor, they will not necessarily get better. Clinic work, however, I think will stay busier than acute care until this medical neglect lands people in the hospital.

meridian healthcare?

any opinions on meridian?


My understanding is that Ascend is making efforts
to pay those who have not received a check as yet.  If you have questions, please feel free to email me as I have been working with the owner regarding non payment issues.  Thanks, Administrator.
Has Ascend paying on time improved?
I see Ascend is needed radiology Transcriptionist and I just want to know if things are changed since the archives I have read.
Ascend - Forwarn - Do Not Work for this Company

I have worked for several medical transcription companies over the years and have found Ascend Healthcare to be the worst company, by far, to work for.

A very-very negative atmosphere . .

No direct deposit available. .

Constant idol threats . .

Holds checks for 2 weeks after each pay period ends.

A lot of heavy ESL . . and very hard dictators.

Management - Backstabbers

Penalties are sometimes assessed for errors; docking $ money from paycheck

The list goes on and on . . . .

Meridian Healthcare Solutions
Anyone here work for Meridian Healthcare Solutions. I'm checking them out (thinking of leaving MQ - gasp!) Any info good or bad would be appreciated. I am looking for PT work. Thanks.
Meridian HealthCare Solutions
If this is the service out of Indianapolis, they are excellent to work for. Many great accounts, work is overflowing, no hassles, no fuss, great pay, direct deposit, great training and hourly pay while training.
Try Virtua Healthcare. They have a few hospitals -
Marlton and Voorhees, and I'm not sure if there is another one. I know that Diskriter is currently doing their account, but the hospital is also looking to hire transcriptionists.
Anyone work for Alliance Healthcare? sm

I saw a job opening for radiology with this company and interested in finding out if anyone out there works for them, what you think, what program they use.


Meridian Healthcare Solutions sm


Are there any MTs/QA with information about Meridian Healthcare Solutions?  I could not find a website for them and searched the archives and found just a little info.  Interested in the salaried QA position they are hiring for at this time.  Any information would be greatly appreciated, even just a website.  Thanks!
