Physicians Thrive Reviews

Justin Nabity and his team are excellent resources for innumerable facets of financial planning with their superb knowledge, honest and straightforward advice combined with an astounding breadth of resources to help you along your journey. .

- Margarita Krasnova

I was very impressed by the level of services this company provides. I think every physician should consider legal and professional advise when being hired at the new position. While working with this company I realized how many mistakes I could’ve made if not being aware of very small but extremely important details of the contract.

- Jake Schlemmer

Physicians Thrive is an excellent organization that has provided prompt, outstanding service to me on multiple contracts. I remain thoroughly impressed with the quality of service I received and plan to use them any time I have a new contract in the foreseeable future.

They accommodated to my schedule, were very familiar with the review of a contract of a J1 waiver physician. They reviewed the contract thoroughly, took the time to explain me everything, answered all my questions and helped me negotiate important changes to the contract. I highly recommend them.

Parts of a contract to consider before exiting

Repayment of Bonuses

Before you sign a contract, it is necessary for physicians to minimize the amount they may be required to repay for bonuses.

In the case of exiting a contract, be aware of the requirements to repay sign-on bonuses, residency stipends, relocation reimbursements, or student loan assistance.  There are often constraints built into the contract in order to incentivize the physician to remain at the same practice for a number of months or years.

Additionally, know when you typically receive salary and RVU or productivity bonuses so that you don’t miss out on receiving this compensation which you have earned before you exit.

Tail Insurance

Tail insurance is a must-have item before you exit your agreement, whether you have it paid through your employer or as an individual policy. Because it is a large expense, many physicians prefer to negotiate it in their employment contract before starting in a new position. As you prepare to leave your job, knowing what that coverage includes after termination is important not only to protect you from any liabilities from your current job but also if you need to secure coverage before starting your next position.

Non-Compete or Restrictive Covenant

During your initial contract negotiation, minimize the distance and time of any non-compete restraints included in the contract. Otherwise, as you exit be aware of any restrictions your current employer may have included within the same city, for an amount of time, or even for practicing in your sub-specialty. Legal action can be taken if you do not follow these guidelines.

The Right to Terminate

The Right to Terminate is a clause that provides guidelines on how to exit the contract. This includes how much time you need to give notice to your employer about your exit along with instructions on how to submit your termination.

Intellectual Property

All physicians, and especially those who are also involved in research, should be aware of any clauses regarding intellectual property rights so that their work, such as inventions, techniques, or research, are considered the property of themselves and not their employer after termination. This part of the contract can be negotiated before signing. If you are not sure what your contract says, it’s important to find out before exiting because these clauses can carry significant restrictions.
