  • For the Plan Year 2023, wRVUs will be tabulated based on Post Date.

At the conclusion of 2nd quarter, providers will have the option to elect a partial payout of 50% of production compensation earned in excess of draw, or have payment deferred until the end of the year. The 4th quarter payout will be the remaining balance (2023 production compensation earnings less draw, and less any 2nd quarter payout).

  • Any year-end negative balances and repayment options will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
