Episode 5: Espresso Shot #1: The Perpetual Upward Shift of the Median

 

Justin Chamblee and Jon Morris join Mark to discuss the recent release of the 2018 MGMA provider compensation market data and Coker’s observations of market data trends. Coker has been observing the data for the past five-to-ten years, noticing the increases that have been occurring.

Episode Synopsis

Justin and Jon discuss the reasons behind the continual upward shift of the market median despite an industry-wide decline in reimbursement. On May 16, 2018, MGMA released their annual Provider Compensation and Productivity Survey Report and Coker noticed (again) an upward trend in the reported total cash compensation to wRVU ratio.

Justin, Jon and Mark provide insight as to the cause of the continual increases year after year and what these increases mean for the future.
