    Laurie,

    The therapist from my primary agency are all contracts with some sub contracting to assistants.  The rate was recently increased to $55 a visit with mileage ( we are somewhat a  rural community), this is with using the laptop which most agree has increased the time of the documentation by 15-20 minutes per visit.  On average I could drive 65-90 miles a day( we work in territories).  Some of the other agencies in the area are salaried, I don't know what that range is.  I do believe they seeing 5-6 visits a day but they are all on paper, do not pay mileage and the SN does ALL the admissions and HHA supervisions.   I look forward to reading other replies.   Charlotte

    Our agency sees Medicare traditional(not broken down to A/B), Medicare HMO's, private insurance companies if the are contracted to us as a preferred provider. Homecare gets reimbursed differently than out pt , SNF , acute. We get paid one lump sum and many factors influence this per Medicare regs. That amount is to cover not only PT but all rehab RN and HHA.

    I think the rate depends on experience , area and whatever the company you work for is willing to pay.I have been a PT for 20 years (last 5 years only home care) and work in the Detroit-area.I work for 4 different companies and they pay $60 , $65 and $70 per visit( I am self employed(pay my own tax , no benefits)).

    Hope this helps , good luck.

    As a PT, I also have gotten $70/visit and 90 for Oasis evals in addition to mileage.   But, this varies wildly, even within the same city.   It pays to ask around if you are in a fairly large metropolitan area.

    I'm a PTA in California and am currently being paid 43$ per visit.  I'm not sure if this is a competitive rate or not.  Does anyone have any imput that might help me negotiate my rate.  I'm contract and not receiving mileage as I only see pts within a 20 mile radius of my home.  No benefits.

    I work in  Pittsburgh, PA and I receive on average $50 per visit.  I'm wondering what would be considered "premium rate", though.  Anyone have any input?
