MedPage TodayNation’s Largest Staffing Firm Will Pay $15 Million to Emergency Physicians

A class action lawsuit against TeamHealth has concluded with a $15 million award settlement to be shared by some 3,000 emergency physicians in almost every US state. The doctors named in the court case alleged that TeamHealth, one of the nation’s largest medical staffing companies with 15,000 physicians, and its subsidiary Paragon Contracting Services, LLC, were in breach of their contracts and secretly cheated doctors out of a portion of the bonuses they were promised. The physicians claimed that their contracts required TeamHealth to pay them a bonus when they supervised care provided by a physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or other advanced practice provider (APP), but that did not happen.
