In general, salaries within managed care organizations are increasing to keep pace with market demands. Warren Surveys' Spring 2000 Salary Survey concludes that the rise in salaries indicates that health plans are "keeping compensation at market levels, and understand that in a tight labor market a highly trained employee with managed care experience is a valuable resource."

One-year increases were almost universal; only 18 of 259 positions studied showed a decrease in salary — and the majority of those salary decreases were less than 3 percent. Most primary care disciplines, however, saw virtually no movement in pay, while changes in specialist pay varied widely.

The five-year trend shows moderate pay increases, with management staff garnering greater salary hikes (exclusive of other compensation) than allied health professionals and practicing physicians.
