ill You Drop Insurers
That Pay Poorly?
Most practice
management experts
advise doctors to
review their
payments by insurers
on a yearly basis and
be ready to drop
those who are paying
the worst or creating
the most denials and
problems.In 2012,
10% of pathologists
were planning to take
this advice, or
perhaps they do it
already. But 21%
were planning to
keep all insurers
because they felt that
even poor payers
represent revenue.
Another 17% felt that
dropping insurers
that pay poorly was
inappropriate
behavior.Previous11/

You Had to Do It All
Over Again, Would
You...Although the
changing healthcare
environment appears
to have affected
pathologists less so
than other doctors,
the number of
pathologists who
would choose
medicine again as a
career has declined
nevertheless. Only
44% would do so in
2012 vs 51% in
2011.However,
among pathologists
who said that they
would opt in again,
49% would choose
the same specialty in
2012, a slight
increase from 2011's
47%.On the other
hand, there were
ripples of discontent
about practice
setting. In 2012, only
20% of pathologists
said that they would
choose the same
practice setting,
compared with 23%
in 2011.Do Men or
Women Earn More?
There's still a large
pay gap between full-
time male and female
physicians,
regardless of
specialty. Overall,
male physicians earn
30% more than their
female counterparts.
In pathology,
however, that gap is
9%, less than in many
other specialties.One
contributing factor
involves women's
choice of specialties.
There are fewer
women in some of
the higher-paying
specialties, which
skews the overall
percentages. For
example, 38% of
pathologist survey
respondents were
women, whereas in
some of the lower-
paying specialties,
such as pediatrics,
53% of respondents
were women; for
family medicine, it
was 36%.Pathologist
Compensation
Report: 2013

Pathologist
Compensation in
2012Physicians have
done well in 2012,
and pathologists are
in the middle of the
ranks. Pathologists
were the 16th
highest-ranked
specialty, with a
mean income of
$247,000. Topping
the list were
orthopedists,
cardiologists,
radiologists,
gastroenterologists,
and
urologists.Historicall
y, pathologists have
ranked high among
the specialties in
Medscape's surveys,
although there has
been a slight decline.
In our 2012 report,
pathologists ranked
15th highest.About
12% of pathologists
earn $400,000 or
more; about 9% earn
$100,000 or less.For
employed physicians,
compensation
includes salary,
bonus, and profit-
sharing
contributions. For
partners,
compensation
includes earnings
after tax-deductible
business expenses
but before income
tax. Compensation
excludes non-
patient-related
activities (eg, expert
witness fees,
speaking
engagements, and
product sales).
Compensation in this
chart includes only
that for physicians
working full-
time.Note: Totals in
slideshow may not
add up to 100% due
to rounding. "Not
applicable" (N/A)
responses were not
included in the charts
and graphs.

Pathologist
Compensation in
2012 vs
2011Compared with
Medscape's 2012
Compensation
Report, there has
been some
movement in
earnings for
pathologists. In 2012,
52% of respondents
said that their
compensation
remained the same
from the previous
year, compared with
45% in
2011.However, other
measures were
nearly the same. In
2012, 30% of
pathologists said that
they earned more
than they earned in
2011, and 19%
earned less. In 2011
compared with 2010,
33% saw earnings
increases and 22%
experienced income
declines.

Pathologist
Compensation by
Geographical
RegionPathologist
compensation varies
significantly by
region. Doctors in the
Northwest, with the
highest
compensation, earn
considerably more
than their colleagues
in the South Central
region, with the
lowest
compensation.In
2011, the spread was
not as wide.
Pathologists earned
the most in the Great
Lakes region and the
least in the
Southwest.

Pathologist
Compensation by
SettingIn Medscape's
2012 Compensation
Report, pathologists
in multispecialty
group practices are
the top earners by
practice setting, with
a mean income of
$324,000. This is a
good deal higher than
last year's figure,
when pathologists in
multispecialty groups
ranked second,
behind those in
single-specialty
groups. Pathologists
in single-specialty
groups, who are also
among the highest
earners, saw an
income decline from
the prior
year.Employed
physicians earned
more than those in
solo practice,
although partners
beat them all.
Pathologists working
in hospitals earned a
mean of $254,000 in
2012. Those working
in healthcare
organizations earned
somewhat less in
2012 than in 2011.
Pathologists in
academia were at the
bottom of the pack in
2012 although they
saw a large increase
from 2011.

 lf Pathologists Feel
Fairly Compensated?
More pathologists
feel fairly
compensated than
not (64% vs 36%),
nearly identical to
2011, when the
number who felt fairly
compensated was
62%, despite the fact
that pathologists are
in the middle of the
pack in physician
earnings
overall.Compared
with all physicians,
pathologists feel
more fairly
compensated:
Among all
physicians, only 48%
of doctors are
satisfied with their
pay.

Pathologist
Participation in
Various Payment
ModelsClearly there
are changes in the
way doctors are
earning
money.Slightly more
pathologists have
opted for concierge
medical practices in
2012 than in 2011
(1% vs < 1%). The
number of
pathologists who are
in cash-only
practices remained
unchanged (2%).

will You Stop Taking
Medicare or Medicaid
Patients?Many
doctors, worried
about potential low
levels of Medicare
reimbursement, are
making the decision
to stop taking those
patients.This
question was less
relevant to
pathologists than to
numerous other
specialties. Many
pathologists are
salaried and are not
as concerned about
insurance issues.
However, those who
are part of a group
may note whether or
not the group will
continue to take
Medicare or Medicaid
patients.
