Base salaries paid by HMOs to family physicians and internists

The two basic primary care specialties are fairly evenly matched when it comes to base salaries paid by HMOs, according to an annual salary survey. When the figures are broken down by profit status, plan model, enrollment size and geographical regions, there are interesting variations, but no clear winner overall.

Note: These figures are medians among a number of HMOs. Each HMO's salary figure, however, is the mean salary for the specialty in question.
