Embarking on a career as a travel therapist offers the thrill of new experiences and the allure of competitive compensation. The earnings of travel therapists can vary based on several factors, including specialty and location. In addition to base pay, travel clinicians typically receive housing stipends, health insurance, and retirement plans.
FlexCare's 'High-Pay, Hassle-Free' philosophy is based on our belief that healthcare professionals deserve our maximum compensation without the need to negotiate; clinicians can rest assured that they are offered our highest available pay package up front for every assignment. Our commitment to transparency also guarantees that all pay packages are thoroughly reviewed with travelers before they apply for jobs to ensure they are equipped to make informed decisions that best support their travel career goals.
Additionally, we pay our recruiters a fixed amount for successfully placing qualified clinicians, so when facilities increase their bill rates, clinicians get paid more, not the recruiters. This ensures our recruiters' only motivation is matching clinicians with their perfect assignments.
