Physicians Comparability Allowance

Subscribe to Processing Tips

Physicians’ comparability allowance is entered using the Allowance payroll document to reflect a 1-year agreement amount or a 2-year agreement amount. After the document applies, the information displays as Allowance Type 510 on IRIS Program IR109, Allowances/COLA/Post Differential. The instructions below provide guidelines for both types of agreements.

One Year Agreement

When the physicians’ comparability allowance is for a 1-year agreement amount, the amount entered in the allowance rate field and the amount entered in the allowance total field must be the same amount.

Two Year Agreement

When the physicians’ comparability allowance is for a 2-year agreement amount, the amount entered in the allowance rate field reflects the annual amount and the amount entered in the allowance total field reflects the 2-year agreement amount.
