One of my hand surgeon's was speaking to another physician and was told that he was performing minor surgeries in the clinic and getting paid more than if he performed them at the hospital or at a surgical center. Does anyone know if this is true? Can you get paid more for performing the surgeries in the clinic rather than at an ASC or hospital?
Physician services in a facility typically pays less because the overhead is not the physicians. If done in an office there is no facility claim so the RVU is higher.
