Malpractice InsuranceHayes 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.
Tax SupportAll 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.
Interstate Medical Licensure CompactThe Interstate Medical Licensure Compact offers qualified physicians an expedited route to obtain licensure in participating states across the U.S.
