Salaries rose more for primary care physicians than specialists

Median compensation for primary care physicians was $241,273, a 3.56 increase since 2013, while median compensation for specialists was $411,852, a 2.39 increase since last year, according to a study by the Englewood, Colo.-based Medical Group Management Association.

The 2015 Provider Compensation Survey Report compared compensation data from almost 70,000 providers.

"As medicine migrates toward a value-based paradigm, we've begun to see movement away from pure productivity-based compensation models. We hope to see physicians' salaries remain healthy throughout this transition," said Halee Fischer-Wright, MD, president and CEO of MGMA.
