    I need to know what the reimbursment is for podiatrists vs. RNFA's vs. PA's as surgical first assistants.
    Im in Northern California.
    Does anyone have any idea where I can get this information?

    Thank you

    Podiatrists should be 100% of fee schedule, and PA's should be anywhere from 85%-92% of the allowable for most payers - it'll vary, so you'll have to check each of them to find out for sure. RNFA's may not be payable at all - once again, check with each payer, because it will vary.
