OMG - Some of these last few replys - I can't wait to hear from you in a few months - exp the person who wrote a book. This company could not tell you what the left hand is doing with the right hand. Corporate has no clue what is going on in the field and they hire idiots to manage now. So many good reps (YES, they did make and exceed quota) have left to get away from the bullshit. They don't care, as long as they get a warm body in that can sing the amedisys praise and make them more money to put in thier already busting pockets...its all about the money. Trust me people - all you do is spend time saying I'm sorry to doctors instead of selling. To me, that is not a rewarding position.

Banghead Re: Amedisys

I just googled "amedisys sucks" to see what popped and I found this message board. This company is a nightmare and they treat their employees like dirt. I was fired after working a little over a year. I was fired for 1 missed visit that the pt complained about. It was my fault, I simply forgot since they were not on my schedule... oh and the fact that I am 8 months pregnant makes me forget things too! I had never been written up or anything and I was fired 3 wks before my due date. Sounds fishy? Yeah it is. They never asked me when I was going on maternity leave or how long I was going to be off. They never gave me my FMLA paperwork evern though I asked for it. I was fired for no good reason, but as I live in VA, a no fault state there is little I can do. HR/people development did nothing, NOTHING to help me even though I had called weeks before this happened b/c I knew something was up. The DOO was out to get me. She succeeded.

Forget Amedisys, go apply to Gentiva. They are ethical and are the leader in homecare nation wide. They pay well, and operate ethically. 400 branches in 39 states. 4 weeks PTO to start.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA this is not correct!!! You must be their PR person. This is far from the truth; I know people that have ran far from this company and have turned down the position.

I got let go from the hospice side of Amedisys for not reaching my quota. I had a territory that led me about 65 miles from my office and we didn't have any contracts to service patients in any of the nursing homes in my territories. Corporate had no sense of urgency to supply the sales reps with the contracts they needed to bring in business. the company is starting to be run by a bunch of former pharma reps.

I recently got a call from an attorney firm that is looking into kick backs that Amedisys is giving to physicians through their electronic referral source software. CMS is also onto them and is also taking a look at their new physical therapy program they just rolled out. If CMS is onto them, i would stay away if I could. They pay well, but it is truly a numbers game and they will can you in a heartbeat if you're not reaching 100% of your goal or higher.

Can you explain more of what you have stated in your post? How are they gibing kick backs??? What does this software program do that would benefit a doc? What does CMS stand for and what is wrong with the PT program? Wanting to make the right decision about possibly accepting a position with them.

The software program allows doctors to write/review/and sign off on orders electronically rather than using fax machines. It also tracks the amount of time that the doctors are spending on each patient's case and also spits out all the information at the end of the month that the phsyician needs in order to get reimbursed. This is am Amedisys program that no other competitor has. It is internet based, so technically it is not considered software perse. The physicians need to sign up for this program. The problem is that physicians end up only sending referrals to Amedisys after signing up for this program and don't send any business to the other players in the market. This, of course, is what Amedisys wants. The "kickback" is that Amedisys is helping the physician office gather the information necessary for billing purposes. This results in increased revenue for the physician and cuts down on the amount of work that the business office for that particular practice has to do. CMS is the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services and is part of the federal government. They are the regulatory agency and they are noticing that Ameidsys is billing for services at a far higher clip than any competitor, and you really can't "out medicare" the next guy.

The PT services are starting to get noticed too. They have a new program called Balanced For Life that is vestibular balance program. The problem here is that CMS is starting to notice a huge amount of people being billed for these services. That is, they are questioning whether people truly need to be in this program. PTs, PTAs, and nurses apparently are being told to "look out" for people who "need" this program so that they can get on it. They are apparently also getting nurses to do stuff that is typically done by therapists and vice versa. By doing that, they can bill for 2 different types of service but only have to pay 1 person.

Again, I worked on the hospice side of things, which doesn't use this computer program yet and doesn't offer PT services. I'm only stating what a law office called to interview me about. My major caution about accepting a job is that they will work you to death. If you tell them that you only want to see, say, 30 people a week, they may say that's fine and hire you. however, don't be shocked if after a couple months, they start giving you a hard time and are asking you to see significantly more patients.

base pay is around $50,000 annually on average. Some get more/less based on experience. Compensation is based upon meeting quarterly bonuses and can get you upwards of an extra $20,000/year depending on how you do.

So is this position calling on referral sources, or patients? Or both? In terms of patients, the ones already in NHs or assisted living? Or do you meet with their families? Any *true* information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have a question: Are you sure no other competitor has a program like this? How can the program only route patients to Amedisys? Is it because the program is user friendly and more convenient for the doc to just get on that program and send to Amedisys or does the program automatically route patients their way?

I am not defending this program, just asking; but it seems that helping the docs with the correct billing codes would not be in any violations, and not sure how that is considered a kickback?

Any feedback?

I would think it creates unfair competition, monopolizing the referrals by "bribing" the physicians by making their work easier with billing! Pharma sure would not get away with that!

Is it hard to meet quota, do they make it realistic? Do they just fire you if you don't or do they try to help you and see what the problem might be? Why did they go to GPS, did they have problems with reps not working? I can see it from a business standpoint but for an employee I think it is a little unsettling! I guess if you think about it though if you are in an office it is like GPS being in a cubicle all day! However, I thought one of the perks of being a sales rep was autonomy and flexibility! Bet they lost some reps over it! Have only been here a week so don't know much yet!

I'm sorry to hear about your recent departure from AMEDISYS but I think you need to check your facts on CMS guidelines and Mercury Doc! Oh and not to mention, the patient is not billed unless they have a "deductible" to meet and the only time they should have a deductable under part A is if they have a medicare plan, like Aetna MC. Good luck in your endevours and I wouldn't burn too many bridges if I were you!

If you would read the post correctly it states that Medicare is noticing too many patients being billed for this, which means Amedisys is billing Patient's medicare, not the patient!!!

If you read that post more carefully, you'll realize that those facts about Medicare and Mercury Doc are correct. That post isn't saying that patients are being billed. Rather, their insurance, in this case Medicare, is being billed. CMS is noticing too many claims for services that are not being billed at such a high rate from other home health companies around the country.

I had to leave Amedisys b/c my husband is in the miltary and we moved, but we were highly encouraged to use Balanced for Life much more frequently than normal, and I know the AEs really pushed Mercury Doc and had competitions within the company to see who could sign up more doctors during a given period of time.

This program is unique only to Amedisys. I don't know of any other company who has anything like it. There certainly aren't any companie who have something like it in the area I live. Yes, if a doctor uses Mercury Doc, the referral only goes to Amedisys. If a doctor wants to send a patient to another company, which they are permitted to do, they would have to fax it to them like everyone else. By signing on with Mercury Doc, doctors aren't signing an agreement stating that they will only send referrals to Amedisys. However, other companies are complaining that this is happening anyway as a by product. It makes sense; doctos like to use companies that make their jobs easier.

That post is correct. CMS is simply noticing that they are getting billed for services at a much higher rate than other companies. I'm a COTA and I left Amedisys to go work for a hospital and I got a call from a law firm about this same exact thing. I don't know much about the ins and outs of Mercury Doc other than they are electronic orders between Amedisys and doctors, but I was asked about Balanced for Life.

Why would a lawyer be investingating and not CMS themselves? CMS is not shy about fining companies or taking away their license. How did you like Amedisys?

Look at the reduction in Falls among your BFL patients! You will see an overall of around 90% reduction in falls from cert to d.c. Studies show that typical gait and strength strength training does not prevent falls. There is a science to BFL and this program actually saves CMS money overall with the reduction in fall related ER visits and hospitalizations. If you went to BFL training you'd understand.

Why are you attacking that person? They simply said they got a call from a lawyer, too. Did not say that they disagreed with BFL just that they also got a call from a lawyer.

Unfortunately, our government, including CMS, don't often look at the long term benefits. I'm sure that BFL will save CMS money in the long term, but right now, they I think they are seeing an influx in diagnosis codes for certain programs that are much higher than the national average. That raises concerns when this is not the case with other companies across the country. Just because they are looking into something, doesn't mean that something bad will happen. It's not necessarily a bad thing that CMS is looking into it, they could find nothing wrong and praise Amedisys.

Also, govt agencies often contract out to attorneys or other private companies to do work for them that they either can't do efficiently themselves or just don't want to. I have a masters in government and non-profit management and we're taught to employ this practice as a cost saving practice (private industry can always do things cheaper than government can). If, and it's a big if, CMS decides to investigate this, they would only look at active and closed records and would interview current employees during an audit. More than likely, they would only interview the DOO and/or therapy directors and not the actual PTs, OTs, COTAs, or PTAs. They would not have access to former employees whereas an attorney could interview and depose former employees.

I went to BFL training and like the program. I never said I disagreed with it. I only reported what the message that the attorney was indicating that CMS is theorizing. I liked BFL and think that other companies will soon be adopting something similar. I've heard rumors that Heartland Home Health is going to develop a similar program.

If so please share!
i'm not sure what that position is. They have "Sales Performance Coaches" which are basically corporate level AEs who help out the AEs who are in the field daily. They may have simply changed their title. Not sure though.

You probably didn't get the job because the dm was freaked out when you bit them on the ass.

They don't care, as long as they get a warm body in that can sing the amedisys praise and make them more money to put in thier already busting pockets...its all about the money. Trust me people - all you do is spend time saying I'm sorry to doctors instead of selling. To me, that is not a rewarding position.
We are a group from western NY and could not agree with you more. To a T.

And we in Western NY are experiencing the same thing. Every step is monitored and they know where we go at every moment. We see it an an invasion of our privacy and the ultimate insult. We are adults and understand our responsibilities, but we are micro-managed to the end. Every single AM in this area has talked of quitting and one has so far.

This was a top notch, best job ever. Now...just waiting on verification on another opportunity then I am gone. Thank God!
I also agree with this. Mr. Borne is a very kind man and I had the pleasure of meeting him in April at the last BFL presentation but I too, wonder if he knows what is going on around the country. The April meeting was uplifting, but the bubble burst once I returned home. I am not new to home care or to nursing, but money does seem to be the bottom line, not quality patient care. I no longer wish to be a part of this fiasco and received notification today of a new opportunity. I will miss my co-workers, but not the upper management.

Let's just say that there are too many chiefs and not enough indians.

You don't know bad until you work for Chris Hambrick and Teresa Ledgerwood! One day, they will get what is coming to them.

Wow people.. You need to get a new job.. I have worked for Amedisys for three years and I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT. Maybe you should spend this energy on working with your managers to make a change, or get out and see how great the next HH company is.

You must live in Patti's underpants. You've posted the SAME thing in three different threads. What happens if Patti is eliminated?

OH, c'mon Jenice! Can't you be a little more discrete about your usual outspoken opinions about pharma folks?

Jester Re: Amedisys

Now that I am away from Amedisys (for over a month now) and see how it looks from the outside, I see how much worse they look than I thought! Amedisys made a laughing stock out of Staffbuilders and frankly, I am embarrassed for them. That's so sad.
