starting next week; another in 2 more weeks; another in early October; and another in November. This is just a normal end of summer / holiday slowdown. I'm sure other posters on this board are also out of work due to the same circumstances.

OMG, get a grip. Just talked to ofc. It is NOT a large acct first of all
and secondly it's not even a hospital. For those of you who must know, initials are TO and it's in Texas. It is apparently going to an offshore service to save a buck or two. Do you really want to deal with a practice that would do that? Further, they have already replaced it with not one but two new accts that I can choose from, so there is no need to get bent out of shape like this. Please.
I lost an acct with MQ, called the hospital and they told me who had the acct. I chose not to go wi
Older posts about them have the MTs bouncing from acct to acct and not being able to make
Give it a whirl. I WAS on that same acct, same pay. Asked and got put on an acct just as bad, so I
How was your acct at Amphion? I have a HORRIBLE acct...

I am new to Amphion and have this account that has a lot of account specifics, no automatic ADT (which means I have to search for the names, etc) which is not a problem for me, but there is one dictator who is ALWAYS awful, and I have been getting him back to back to back my first week with Amphion.  Did you find that you basically only had 1 or 2 dictators while there or did you have more?  Of course, I would not mind doing him occasionally but can't do this all day.  I will never be able to make any money, especially at the line rate that I am being paid.  I have 2 children of my own and 3 of my sister's children in my care.  I cannot afford to do this everyday and don't know what to do.  I work as an IC for another company making 9 cents a line, which is much more than Amphion, but really wanted employee status so was willing to make a little less, but I am afraid it is not going to work.  I do not want to have to find yet another company and start all over with them to only find out that they suck too.  Any suggestions?

VA acct w/ops 9. NM
It is probably true because it is a radiology account.

which acct
which account are you currently working on, or you would say is a bad one. Thanks
What acct
What acct do you work on? If you are on BeyondTxt T mode there is no work. I don't know how you girls who need benefits are paying for them.
Thanks for replying. The problem is I did have my own account and they decided not to pay me for over a month and because I said something about not being paid they took offense. SO what can you do. Its a win-lose situation. Now I just have to hope that the check clears!
KS Onc acct
If you are working on the KS onc acct please email me.
FN New acct
Are we talking about the new acct with the 1 million lines?.  What a joke.  I'm lucky to do 500 lines a day and that is only by working on 3 different accts.  And I found out the new acct will be going to VR, which I don't do.  I'm a transcriptionist, not an editor.
KS acct

Do you know which acct you would be working on?

If it were your acct, you would already know.
They don't keep it a secret. One of mine, large hospital on the East Coast, is leaving today. I've known for at least a month. They chose not to renew their contract with us. It happens.
.06 OB acct
I felt the same way, ladies. In fact, I recently went from a .0725 (knocked down from 0.825) GROSS LINE ACCT to a .06 transcription rate acct with HORRIFIC docs - worst I've had since starting ne.arly 23 years ago. I was offered VR (with even worse docs, so basically re-typing it ALL) for .02 cpl.

I guess you can understand why I'm on the job hunt
Is this a rad acct and do they have openings? (nm)
I loved that acct too....
Typical M-Q then one day it just vanished.
my acct has about 80-90% ESLs
my back up account is worse. 
That seems like it could be true, my acct is So Cal
and most of the patients are not Caucasian or are ethnic (is that PC?), as well as the dictators.
Same here, about 40-50 regular drs on my acct, with
probably 10 of them being so awful, I can hardly attempt them. I'm happy to say that some I hated at first are now ones I enjoy, so hopefully I will keep finding that to be the case. Others though, UGH!
No, DRC is not really "atrocious acct" but... sm
It is NOT easy stuff... My experience has been lots of cutting-edge oncology in all specialties. If you don't know your stuff you'll be researching more than typing. Very few ESLs and, yes, the platform is Word-based, and, no, no need to be a computer wiz--tech support is great at DRC and so is QA support.
Your radiology acct
Are you working certain hours/days/evenings and are you working weekends?  What is holiday pay per report?
Your radiology acct
Do you have a lot of ESL docs?
TT onco acct

Can't you get a backup account?  That's what I did.  They are not all slow at the same time, usually.  I get better count on onco acct than on my other.

Well I was doing VR for an acct at 1.80 report. sm
They cut pay to 3.5 to 5.5 cents per line under the manager I was under. I know a lot of people left. Just curious as to if any are here on this board.
Ortho acct
i have been offered ortho, which i have a great deal of experience. How much would you say per hour you make at 7.5 WI spaces. I really have a lot of quesstions and if possible would like to e-mail you direct. Also can the ShortHand program be used
I know which acct you are talking about but (sm)
trust me (or not) there are TONS of work on others, one I know FOR SURE.  Have you asked for a backup??
what acct?...email me....nm
I always get a mix, no matter which acct I am on.
Just how EZ is it to get off of the DI entry acct

Anyone starting new with KS on hem/onc acct? nm
That really depends on your acct, even now. nm
Did you think to ask about acct specifics?
What you think might look better and what the client requires are two different things.  Often when a client receives expansions that they specifically ask NOT to be done, they go back to the client and yell and in some instances ask for a credit.  The transcription company isn't going to take the chance if the specifics are that rigid.  As for the name of the facility - I'd think you could just ask?
Depends on your acct - sm
I have 12-hr window to get in 8 hour shift but I know others on accounts that require stricter schedules. Flex hours are pretty much okay here.
TT will be hiring for new acct soon
I would ask; after all, if they know it is hard to keep someone on the acct sm
it is reasonable to pay someone a little more to do so. Just schedule some time to talk frankly with your boss and say, Look I know you have a hard time, blah blah. All they can say is no.
Yes, someone is either confused abt the acct - b/c that sm
is like a radiology pay rate - or they are confusing with a different company they talked to!
OP says *had an acct* not an employee SM
so what would the labor board or an attorney be able to do?  Nothing.
In other words, LP will bid the acct low SM

and if they do manage to get the account, YOU WILL TAKE A PAY CUT FOR THAT ACCOUNT AND SHE WARNED YOU IT WAS COMING.


How do you tell if acct u do is overflow? nm
Webmedx: How can you tell if acct
main acct is usually enough in my experience, but have others...
Most of the people that I have seen asked off of an acct were not on QA
as they had been taken off a long time ago. QA can only catch what goes through it. Several of the MTs that are on our account do multitudes of work and when you look at what has been sent without blanks, sometimes it is sickening. QA can only correct what is sent to them. Some companies are too fast to take someone off of QA and then those folks speed on through without caring what they send to the hospital. Several have gotten caught at that game and those are the ones who have been asked to be taken off the account. If those had gone through QA it never would have happened. I know our QA staff has requested certain MTs (whose work we have seen in the database) be put back on 100% QA and if the co won't do it, we can't do it. That's how that happens.
You don't want the ESL acct I was on with them. Whoo doggy! Bad...nm
Better companies out there. Lot of acct jumping. Low pay. nm

Not necessarily true; my acct is less than 50% ESL SM
The higher paying accts are higher percentage ESL but there are many other accounts which are nowhere near as high as your 80%. There are at least 20 different accounts there (maybe more?) and not all of them are high ESL. (BTW, been with them for 6 years now so don't suggest that I'm a newbie and they will bait and switch me to another account later.)
acct supervisor/managers
do you have one or multiple accounts to manage ?? at our company each acct manager has about 2-3 accounts to keep track of, just curious how others do it, i.e. one acct per manager or several per manager
It probably is a slow patch on your acct, but (sm)
ask for a backup anyway.  I haven't run out.
I'm on an ExText acct with MW. Love it! nm
Not on cardiology acct, but do work for SGS.
Can I help?
P.S. Forgot to mention, my reg acct (sm)
has 4 or 5 hospitals within the same hospital system.  Same doctors, same format, same everything. It's just whatever comes up w/o me actually having to change anything.
