Hayes Locums coordinates comprehensive A-rated medical malpractice insurance at no charge for each locum tenens physician and advanced practitioner who serve at our clients’ facilities.If the state requires enrollment in the state patient compensation funds, we will assist you through the enrollment process.
All locum tenens providers work as independent contractors. We cannot provide tax advice, but do encourage our physicians and advanced practitioners to contact their tax advisor about taking advantage of certain tax benefits allowed.You will be responsible for filing any state, federal, Medicare, or Social Security taxes.For this purpose, you will be issued an IRS1099- MISC form, in place of an IRS W2 form.
Locum tenens is a Latin phrase that means, "holding one's place.” In a healthcare or hospital setting, locum tenens positions fill both short and long-term gaps in coverage. The most common uses for locum tenens are to cover conferences, vacations, illness, or filling an ongoing vacancy.
As a locum tenens provider, you accept positions based on an agreed upon timeframe, schedule, and rate. Hayes Healthcare pays on a bi-weekly basis. Federal income tax withholding and reporting are up to the individual. Ask your tax advisor about the many benefits of working as an independent contractor.
