Compensating medical assistants for higher-level work

Share this:


This HealthAffairs article discusses how  medical assistants should be compensated for  the more advanced  (and just more) work  that they’re doing these days.

It refers to studies of 15 primary-care and multi-specialty centers that “improved their operational and/or patient-care outcomes by investing in”  additional medical-assistant training.

“These advanced MAs added significant value to care teams and, through career ladders, bonus pay, and other methods, received higher compensation in return. In some cases, these improvements were quite dramatic.”
