When Will I Be Able To Do Locum Tenens?

It all depends on your comfort level and the client’s needs but we recommend having at least 2 years' full time expirence before trying locums. Even though you have just finished your anesthesia program and are ready to take on a variety of cases, locums must be comfortable to work in a variety of situations, including being solo.  Being a locum is more than just performing anesthesia, and gaining experience in a Permanent position is the best way to prepare for your future in locum tenens.

What Sets National Anesthesia Apart From Other Agencies?
line

Two words set us apart: RELATIONSHIPS and INTEGRITY. National Anesthesia truly believes in building relationships. We don't look at our providers as a commodity but rather as family --- we live life with you if you allow us to.

Integrity is the fabric of our existence; National Anesthesia will never lie, cheat or steal from you. If we say we have an opportunity for you, we do! The money we say we will pay you will be paid to you in a timely fashion. If we say we are going to do something for you, we do it! We do not participate in unethical business practices! We do not break our word! We expect the same from you.

What Income Can I Expect to Earn?
line

This will depend on many different variables, such as geographic location, whether or not you are a hospital employee (W-2) or an independent contractor (1099), the benefit package, etc.  We can help in the negotiation process with a new employer.

What is a Medicare Number For?
line

Now that you are an anesthesia provider, the Medicare cases you provide anesthesia for need to be billed.  Every provider will be required to have an NPI (National Provider Identifier) for Medicare billing purposes, so we recommend getting one right off the bat.  For more information regarding the NPI, please visit the “Helpful Links” section of our website.
