How much income can a telehealth clinician expect to make?
→

Clinician pay varies in virtual care. There are many variables to consider, such as whether you’re considering working in virtual care full- or part-time.

Many telehealth clinicians are paid by the consultation rather than as a yearly salary. In some cases, telehealth providers are paid by the hour or by the number of emails or texts they send out to their patients or to other providers.

Variables that impact earning potential include your geographic location, number and location of state licenses, clinician type and specialization, and number of hours worked per day or week.
