SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have searched through the threads on this and am still unclear. When people talk about wRVU compensation models, they quote $50 to over $80/RVU as a range. Below copied from a post by Pinch and Burn: "50--avg 60-good 70+ --above avg 80-- definitely a gem." However, the CMS rate per RVU is only $34.04. I am confused as to where this extra money is materializing when setting salary. Is that the difference in commercial vs CMS reimbursement rates? If so, it seems extremely high. I am guessing is it due to my lack of understanding of RVU vs wRVU reimbursements.
