“The 3Rs and Beyond – Physician Recruitment Incentive Insights”

PYA Principal Tynan Kugler recently authored an article published by the American Association of Provider Compensation Professionals (AAPCP). The article, “The 3Rs and Beyond–Physician Recruitment Incentive Insights,” considers current trends associated with recruitment or signing bonuses, relocation incentives, and retention bonuses when hiring physicians. Tynan notes that with staffing shortages in the medical field, hiring incentives are becoming necessary to fill critical roles, but still must remain compliant.

Article excerpt:

While hiring incentives have long been common practice and are often part of compensation packages hospitals and health systems offer physicians, the current and impending shortage of physicians, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the desire for work/life balance have elevated their impact. As in other industries experiencing similar challenges, recruitment incentives may provide opportunities to attract and retain physicians when it is otherwise difficult to do so. Revisiting an existing or developing a new incentive compensation philosophy that is creative yet compliant from a regulatory perspective could greatly contribute to the pursuit of an organization’s strategic and financial goals.
