Abstract

Part 1 of this series focused on factors influencing payment for patient care services and Part 2 described compensation plans for neurologists in private practice and in academic medicine. In Part 3, we review how hospital salary support and appointments to Veterans Administration hospitals contribute to the salary structure of neurologists. We also discuss neurohospitalist care and ways neurologists can potentially increase compensation from on-call pay, telemedicine, and the use of new transitional care and complex chronic care codes. We conclude with an emphasis on the important role of neurologists as team players in a health care system that will rely on efficient coordination of care among many health care workers.
