A recent report published by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) finds interventional cardiologists receive on average $450 more per day for on-call services than their invasive-cardiologist counterparts, a cohort which includes electrophysiologists.
Comparing invasive cardiologists to noninvasive cardiologists, compensation was largely equivalent, with a median compensation of $650 for on-call services. However, within the invasive cardiologist cohort, there was significant variability in compensation favoring interventional specialists.
On-call compensation better for interventional cardiologists
