Did not sign for Ipay
I did not want to join Ipay..however, I should still get a check if Im owed one, right?
Can you use a plus sign for hyper and minus sign for hypo?
Did anyone get a paystatement e-mail from ADP for a paycheck that we will be receiving sometime in the next few days? It is for a weird amount, under $75. I called payroll and they told me that I will be getting a letter explaining this check. Were very secretive.  DOES ANYONE know ANYTHING???
IPAY statement/check
What office do you work for? Are you an employee or IC? I'm just asking cuz I'm wondering if I might get a check! Don't know what it's for, but I would take it!
If you look in IPAY at the paystub and check it looks different than the other ones. I also talked t
It is in my IPAY, too, but check your bank, there is no deposit made.
I already said that I talked to payroll and asked why this was in IPAY,
They said that we will be receiving a check in the mail with a letter explaining it. They would not go into detail. I don't know how much more clear I need to make this for you.
It's already been deposited in my IPay account. How can it be a live check?
Letter should be sent ahead of the 09/02/2005 ipay statement so
that we would not be held in suspension until our letter/check arrives via mail. NOT GOT MINE EITHER, but shows up on ipay.
I live in PA. I dont have Ipay. I got the actual check in the mail not on direct deposit. It said
they miscalculated the lines and sorry for the inconvenience. I have been on DQS for 2 years and now they send a check for miscalculating the lines.
Anytime.:-) nm
You're welcome - Anytime!
Anytime you want to work on it
Let me know.  I will be more than happy to lend my marketing experience and anything else that needs to be done.
It happens with all groups, everywhere, anytime…
this post was like if you let your children go to daycare, see what happens. The world has become so evil that it just does not apply to if you have your children in day care. Remember about the mother in Texas, stay at home, who drowned her 5 children at 1 time. Beautiful children and yet a mother no less. You cannot just say not on my watch. That is what I was speaking about. I think lots of people have their heads in the sand thinking just home front is safe and secure.
I think anytime you get a raise you should
thank your lucky stars. I have been doing this for over 20 years and I cannot even remember a raise, probably in the 80s or early 90s? I think most places, the companies here, are not giving raises these days. I make less than the 80s and 90s now. Others will make more but they are probably the ones who have their own accounts.
Here's you a link on it. Won't be anytime soon.
That is true, when you sign up you sign up from the
day your former insurance terminated. Then it is on a month to month basis.
Anytime Felicia, I enjoy
telling people where to put things.
READ ingredients!! Anytime you see
(meat) *byproducts* you are getting *and paying for* mystery meat that *you would not choose to feed to your beloved animal* if you could see what it was. It's not far-fetched at all to call it "road-kill!"

Good rule of thumb: Most of the mega-corporations out there making dog/cat food and spending BIG BUCKs for advertisement of how great their product is - are usually the ones most guilty of scamming you by adding unhealthy ingredients.

It's not that difficult to find quality food for your best friends -

Anytime someone makes a suggestion for an -sm
actual action to be taken, all the naysayers on this board try to blast them out of the water with their *flame*-throwers. "What goes around", et al.
I love my ESL docs and would see one anytime sm
over an English as first language doc. All they care about is money, not patient care. I think the ESLs actually CARE about their patients.
Anytime a company does not honor its own paydates,
I would never give a 2nd chance to miss it.

If you have anything in writing or email, I would take that to an attorney. They owe you money. You were given a paydate and they failed to pay. I would also take to the attorney a list of dates/times you tried to contact management, who you were trying to contact, at what number/address, and the response you received.

Not honoring paydates is a zero tolerance issue in my book.

I would make sure at the very least to contact the Better Business Bureau and file a complaint.

Good luck.
anytime a doctor's wife is involved in the
practice, it's always something...susan
did you try to do a system restore? anytime i find myself sm
in a situation like yours, i always try system restore to an earlier date to fix the screw up i did. no need to uninstall programs that way either. so much easier. i agree with the other poster, sometimes i get so furious with IT that i hang up on them and fix it myself!! if working on the computer is your income, you owe it to yourself to learn how they work so you can fix minor problems or be best friends with an IT or repair person you can call 24/7 without a huge price.
You are far from stup Kathy. Think it through or contact me anytime.
Anytime! Hope it gets worked out. Good luck! nm

People always seem to have to find fault in everything anytime there is a change. No, we are not

We have implemented links to various keywords and it will be growing over time.  At present, we have about a dozen keywords that you can link to when there is a reference made in a post by a poster.  We felt that visitors would WELCOME information that they may be seeking.

Regarding Medquist, it's no secret that the company outsources offshore.  That has been made public my MedQuist for some time now. 



If you spent anytime here at all, y'all know how I feel about offshoring. :0) SM

What most don't realize is while there are laws protecting your medical data in the United States, these laws are unenforceable overseas.  So basically, a patient's supposedly "protected health information" isn't really protected at all once it electronically crosses the borders out of the U.S.  I think it is important that all patients be aware of this fact and have a say whether or not they want someone in India having access to their medical data!

I've been talking to a newspaper reporter in my area who is interested in running a story on this subject especially because I have firsthand knowledge of a local hospital who is outsourcing all of its transcription to a MTSO that offshores to India.  I'm very excited because I've been pushing for public awareness of this subject for a while and I feel like I'm finally on the threshhold of effecting real change in my little part of the industry.

Anyway, change has to start with us, the MTs.  We are MTs and we are patients.  We have valuable knowledge as MTs about what happens to our protected health information and we should pass that knowledge on to those patients who don't have the benefit of being employed in the healthcare industry and are unaware of what happens to all that electronic information that makes up their medical record.  I've told my whole family to ask "who does your transcription" at the doctor's office, the hospital, etc.  When the doctor's office or the hospital hands you a HIPAA disclosure, that's your opening to ask questions about who all sees your medical record, who does the transcription, and is your medical information protected even if it is sent to India to be typed.

Okay, that was my soapbox speech for the day. 

Anytime I've tested, it's always been the same test on mttest.com, or careerstep. See if you c

She has no sign that says that but obviously you do.
She has worked in nothing but the best behavior. She kept her chin up and kept morale up while she was working way too many hours with way too little time off.

I dont know where you come off saying that other than thinking that you must have that sign on YOUR back. Don't transfer your stuff to someone else. Have a nice night.
Well it's just the way I am. I sign my name to almost SM

everything I post. I'll admit I've gone anonymous a few times, but it is rare. I'm just not going to do it. I stand behind anything I say - if it's wrong, then I made a mistake, I wasn't trying to hornswoggle anybody.

It is easy to see the culprit behind these MTs who can't make any money. You hear people talking about "platforms" and searching for demographics, etc. That's the problem.

I work for somebody for whom I am a source of income, not a cost center. The faster I am, the more we both make.

I do use my Expanders - a lot - and I've used the same shortcuts for years. But the main thing is that I work in Word without worrying about how some unit secretary is going to pull up the report I just typed. The company I work for isn't there to make sure the consultant on 4E can see the work quickly without shuffling papers. They're there to produce a fast and accurate medical record - period.

That other stuff is for the hospital to worry with, and the hospital I work for has some kind of system where my Word documents go in their system in batches. I wouldn't pretend to know what that is, LOL, but I'm not crippling along on a program that was designed for everybody but ME, and that's what happens at these big companies. They have to have a selling point, and that seems to be it.

"Here, let us do your transcription. Here's how it works. The MT types your report, it goes into the chart electronically. And the stuff is all there for the data miners, too, so everybody can like us!" This was true for Dictaphone, Lanier, everybody. They all had to have an angle for everybody in the hospital and the MT was left sucking hind teat, as we say out in the country.

Been there and done that and would only go back if I had absolutely no other choice. As much as I love this profession, I couldn't figure out why people gripe about not making money so much - and then I went to work for a national and found out real quick.  

My sign is Leo...nm

Before you sign

I don't know what they are charging you but I talked to several before I went with Trinity Debt Management whose name was given to me by my church and they were the cheapest.  But I still ended up filing a Chapter 13 because of a divorce that cost me so much I could not pay the bills.  But I did start with them and they were very nice.  It cost $50 to start the program but their monthly maintenace fees were way cheaper than the other major ones I talked with.  Some wanted as much as $100 to $150 per month to manage my account that was a payment to a bill.  But I chose the Chapter 13 repayment program and pay $300 a month for three years to the courts and they pay it out and the balances are then wiped clear.  I only had to pay partial attorney fees, mainly filing fees, the rest was put into the monthly fee.  I still feel bad but at least am paying something.  But there is nothing you can do when you go from two paychecks to one and doesn't feel the bills are his responsibility.  Good luck.  Just thought I would mention them.


she did sign for 3 yrs but if we all....nm

No, and don't ever sign...
Any type of contract or agreement that has that clause in it! Be aware!
They probably won't sign

They will probably hee and haw and not sign a contract or they put in whereas for "cause they can terminate the service immediately" or with 15 to 30 days notice they can terminate the service without cause.  So with or without a contract they will terminate her services when they find someone else if that is what they are doing.   Who knows I could be wrong and will probably get my goose cooked for working now for 15 years without contracts and have to eat my words.   Time will tell. 


I would sign....but
I won't spend $2 to do it!! Rip....
Where do I sign up?
 I would sure like to meet you in person...I've been an MT for 42 years (started at age 17 when transcription was still lumped in under "Medical Secretary."  I have worked in all venues of transcription...clinic, MTSO and legal...but never found the time to actually get all the credentialing an MT needs in the current environment.  After "proving" myself, I was promoted to supervisory level and my greatest pleasure was "helping" other MTs as I had been helped in my early years.  If you ever implement your "program", let me know because I'll sign up anytime/anywhere!!   
You don't want to sign it off any other way or ...
...you will not get credit for your lines. Use the unknown patient MRN, type it and sign if off. Follow your company/client's specifications on how to accomplish that.
I do want to sign it off
because it is a personal letter and he does not want it on the hospital system.  I would be typing it in Word and be paid separately. He has quite a few of these he wants done.  The point is he doesn't want the lines in the system.    Thank you.
Then don't sign it
Don't agree to it and don't sign it and if you do, then don't whine about it.
That would be the first sign of
epicondylitis (better known as tennis elbow). This is
very common in repetitive movement in the hand/wrist, which of course all MT's apply themselves to day after day. I experienced that for the first time in my MT life 1-1/2 years ago, very painful. After viewing articles via Internet, this totally alleviated the problem as follows. One hour before starting work, take 600 mg ibuprofen, buy a tennis elbow brace or 2, I just had it in the left hand, you wear it approximately 1/2 inch "below" the epicondyle everyday constantly that you work...within at least 4 weeks, you will find that you no longer have the pain, thus can now stop the ibuprofen, but continually wear the tennis elbow brace while working to avoid recurrence of the problem.

Have you ever seen this dictated as part of HEENT exam on history and physical exam.

please sign this petition...

I received this from my sister, please pass it on. It is very important. It may not be LEGAL, but it is important... just click on the link, then click on the sign petition...let's make our voices heard on this issue...please also pass it on...

Mastectomy Bill in Congress:
It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important...please take
the time and do it really quick!

Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all

Please send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever
a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those
times. If you are receiving this it's because I think you will take the
30 seconds to go and vote on this issue and send it on to others you know
who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which
will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital
stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the
"drive-through mastectomy" where women are forced to go home hours after
surgery against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia
and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a
petition drive to show your support. Last year over half the House
signed on.

PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You
need not give more than your name and zip code number.

I would not sign it, seems like they have something to hide
to sign it. Obviously they are trying to protect themselves from a MQ type of situation. Makes you wonder though?
No, I didn't sign up,
Not many. We're too far away. I tried to sign up to take in
a child who hadn't found his or her parents, but most of them have extended families and I'd have to be registered as a foster parent.
What a deal! Where do I sign up????

There's a sign o' the times, eh?
