What will the process be to approve FTEs (replacements, budgeted adds and unbudgeted adds)?

As of October 1st the following will be the process:

Replacement FTEs

Place the request in the ERF requisition tool – you must list the person that is being replaced and the reason. If the cost center is within budget and your staff evaluations are up-to-date, the request will be approved.

Budgeted Additional Mission Bay FTEs

If the practice is within budget, please provide the timing of these hires only – no further review or approval is needed.

Budgeted Additional FTEs

Same as replacement, but you must show that your practice work RVUs have started to increase. Also, you must present your request at the weekly staffing review meeting, which will be similar to ERF day but much quicker and less hassle.

The review group will be: Dave Morgan, a rotating ambulatory director, a rotating MSO and an HR representative.

Other than current budget status and wRVU growth, no additional information is needed.

After October 1st, contact Marci Peirce to present.

A dial-in will be provided so you can call in – you will not have to show up in-person!

Unbudgeted Additional Position

Same as budgeted, but you must show that your practice wRVUs have increased and are exceeding the budgeted wRVUs. To meet this requirement, you will need to present your actual wRVUs per FTE compared to MGMA 50th percentile benchmark and be prepared to answer the following questions:

  • Is your practice currently on budget?
  • Are your practice wRVUs consistently increasing from month- to- month?
  • Have new faculty been added to your practice?
  • How do your current staffing levels compare to MGMA benchmarks? Please note that we will be using 10,000 wRVUs per FTE; contact Felicia Fulgencio for the MGMA benchmarks.

If you have questions, please talk with your Director.
