    !!!!!!!!!!COTA Homecare Pay- PLEASE ADVISE!!!!!!!!!

    Hi all,

    I'm a COTA/L and will be beginning a contract homecare position in MA. Im the first COTA this agency has hired (they are primarily a nursing agency). My previous homecare position was salaried, with benefits, and mileage reimbursement. This agency is offering me a per-visit rate of $32-37 (depending on the payer), but no mileage reimbursement, and also the benefits are through Commonwealth Connect, the MA program for individuals whose employers do not offer private insurance- its pricey). Just wondering how this number looks to those more familiar with contract homecare experience... I have 3 years US COTA experience, and 1.5 yrs experience working international nonprofit, and am bilingual Eng/Spa. Any input welcome and greatly appreciated!

    I'd say that sounds pretty good.  I get 65 a visit as an OTR, also no benefits included.  I do get mileage though.  So if you're making half of the OTR visit, I'd think that was pretty good.  I think the PTA I work with gets like 30-33 a visit??  Hope this helps.
