Sometimes those premiums can be pricey in private practice.  Not what the OP asked, but just adding by 2 cents.

Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
How soon can one get health benefits with them?
I am looking for a company that has dental coverage without the $1000 annual limit in payouts.
Does DSG have affordable health benefits? SM
Any idea on the cost of this?  Thanks, :-)
PA health insurance benefits
I can't speak for all employers. I was manager of the transcription department for a large cardiology practice. Our health insurance premium was totally paid for (employee only). The company paid half of the premium for family coverage. Yes, those were the good old days! Now, as an employee with a national, I am looking at $400 per month for individual health insurance coverage with my current company.
health benefits specifically

Looking for a company (as an employee, F/T) that offers affordable family plan health benefits for less than the $1022 per month I am paying now!

I absolutely love the company I work for, but their benefits are outrageous (small business) and me understanding their plight is not putting food on my table.  I have a special needs daughter, so I need actual insurance, NOT a discount plan.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

what company offers the best health benefits?

What company offers the best health benefits?

As far as:

waiting period before they start (I'm looking for 90 days or less),

how much they cost for yourself and dependents (I have myself +1 - spouse - can pay maybe $300/month out of paycheck at most),

PEC lookback period (preexisting condition - example - look back 3 months is better than 1 year),

pharmacy cost (I need a flat rate copay, not a percentage, with no yearly cap, and brand names and generics)


Anyone who has been happy or unhappy with their insurance through their work-at-home MT company, please share your experience and opinions. Thanks

Are there any companies out there that offer benefits to PT employees, such as health insurance?
I know it's a rarity but I know hospitals do.
Are there any companies who offer health benefits to part time employees?
Need insurance.
MDI-ers: Is Instant Text compatible with MDI's platform? Do they offer health benefits? nm
Can a Diskriter MT tell me when health benefits begin (90 days, 1st full month)?
Great pay, great benefits for 11+ years..sm
I've just started with this great company (eMTS).  I have 11+ years of experience and I was started at .10 per line as a regular employee, not IC, with a huge sign-on bonus, full benefits, very nice people, and a good account.  So far, this is the best experience I've had in my years as a transcriptionist.  Unfortunately, I don't believe they're hiring more right now, but you could always check in with them, they're online at eMTS.com.  The management seems to really care and they work with you.
No more great benefits. Only if you are
Yes, they have sick pay and PTO, great benefits...sm
I've worked for TH for a long time, have taken sick time, and have never been fired for it.  Ridiculous.
Benefits don't sound that great to me.

They may be better than some, but certainly not great. 

Great benefits don't help if the work isn't there.
It's been a while and maybe they've gotten better. The recruiter at the time was less than above-board with me. Try to find current employees to talk to.
They are able to offer great benefits...
because they do more than just transcription. And, for clarification, my posts are referring to the supervisor to whom the MTs report directly. Ms. Nasty-for-no-reason-at-all.
Webmedx is great for me; good benefits, sm
PTO, reasonable insurance cost. Plenty of work, decent platform (although we had some trouble last week but that's rare). I realize one company can't be right for everyone, but Webmedx has been great for me. 8 years and counting.
I bet the benefits aren't so great anymore.
Everywhere business are taking a hit and passing it on to their employees. Good insurance now at a company is one where you aren't spending more than $300 a month and you have just co-pays or a very small deductible.

Wages are frozen, people being fired for budget costs, everyone's doing two or more jobs and getting paid for one.

It would probably be a big blow to go back for a lot of people. The work place isn't the way it used to be anymore. Sad.
They had great benefits and little work. I lasted three
Great benefits, plenty of work, pay on time
Depending on experience, slightly above-average pay. I used to be with a company where I would have given my right arm for those few simple things. As for the posts below regarding line count, IF this (or any other concern) was affecting my work, there's a new invention called a telephone that comes in handy when wanting to address concerns (and their phone number is on their website).
Seem to have great benefits, which start after a month of employment. sm

Pay is so-so, level III 8 cpl, level IV 8.5 cpl, level V (high ESL) 9 cpl.  Everyone seems very friendly and helpful. 

Good luck! 

Transhealth is very organized, great benefits..horrible platform
Maybe it was just me but i never made it through training. It certainly could have been a lot easier than having to open up 3-4 programs to get going. I found it to be time-consuming and in a production-based atmosphere, this did not cut it. On the other hand, maybe others think the program is wonderful, but I sure did not. I have used Dictaphone EXText and that is way easier.
TransHealth has great benefits, PTO, paid holidays for fulltimers. nm
Hourly pay, great benefits, schedule depends upon which accounts...sm
you are QAing.  Solid company.  Good luck!
Great office staff, okay pay, no benefits, horrible ESL all accounts...NM
My hubs retired as a fire captain. Great benefits, thank God! nm
Gotta agree -- YOG was the best! Great pay, good benefits. I quit sm
the moment I heard she had sold to MQ .. ugh. 
Great company -- good benefits, average pay, easy-to-achieve sm

incentive tier, ExText platform, pay by direct deposit every 2 weeks, always on time.  The people in management seem to genuinely care about the employees, which is a nice plus.  I have been there since October and am very happy.  Of course, one man's paradise is another man's hell it seems at times, but it is a good fit for me.


Good luck! 

Good company, great people, good benefits.
Affordable insurance. Good luck!
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
You might want to fix that.

You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

That is my last word to you!

I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
Oracle is great. Bayscribe is wonderful great line counts.
The trainer at OTI will always answer any questions about the platform and if you have any problems they have already worked them out, so just ask. Good luck!
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Loved Alltype! Great management and great accounts.
wah  -  i miss it there!
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
Axolotl has AWESOME, AFFORDABLE insurance.  Family plan medical and dental costs a little over $300.00 MONTHLY.  They also pay for family plan vision in its entirety.  STD, LTD, 401K with match and flex spending account, great PTO and HOLIDAY pay.  OH and paid downtime in the case you run out of work, which doesn't happen often!!! 
You are right about the health
insurance, it is not very good.
get health ins
You can join your local chamber of commerce and get a group rate or check what your state has for the uninsured.
Great company, great boss....

I use to work there.  The dictators on my account were really good.  They use Emdat/Inscribe.  Pay on 1st and 15th by direct deposit.

That''s great and I've heard they pay great as well.
I just have heard a lot of adjectives for a few accounts - zinger, killer, impossible, etc., and I sure know I couldn't hack it there. But I'm sure they know what they are getting into when they sign up.
Entente Health?
Has anyone heard of Entente Health? 
Does anyone have any information on HIP (Health
Information Partners)?  Consistent work?  Good platform?  Anything else?  Thanks in advance!!
Do you know how much your health insurance is? sm
I applied today and took the online test.  I am confident I did well.  I am sure, though, there are a lot of others doing the same.  I was just wondering how much health insurance cost monthly.  Do you get paid by the line or by the hour?  Are they pretty fair? 
Health Insurance
I'm also looking to Webmedx.  I was wondering if you, or someone else out there, might have an idea what the cost of health insurance for family would be.  Thank you!
TT health insurance

Are any of you taking out the insurance. I just started in October with the big hire, and should be eligible February 1, 2007, right? Anybody know.

I have also been curious about the PTO time accrued.

Does anyone know the new Health Ins rates?

Trying to decide

Hi, does anyone have any experience with this company out of Maryland?  I just tested with them.
