Find out how your compensation compares with other allergists

The College is thrilled to partner with the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) to collect allergy-specific compensation and production data for the seventh consecutive year! Complete our 2023 survey and find out how your compensation compared to other allergists during 2022. Our new data automation process means you don’t have to enter data manually!

The survey deadline has been extended to February 17.

Want more reasons to participate?

  • You’ll get free access to the results, with breakouts for academic and non-academic allergists! Find out how other allergists are compensated and get valuable allergy RVU data. The more data you provide, the more data you’ll have access to!
  • It’s the most accurate allergy compensation data available! Last year we collected data from a record 624 allergists.
  • Survey participation no longer requires manual data entry! With the new data automation process, simply upload your system reports in any Excel file format.
  • It’s confidential! All data is completely confidential; only a handful of MGMA data analysts will see it. No College staff or members have access. In addition, all reported data must meet minimum threshold requirements, so your practice’s data will never be the sole benchmark.
  • Answers to your survey questions are only a phone call away. MGMA provides one-on-one help – just call 877-275-6462, ext. 1895, or email survey@mgma.com.

Before you start

  • Ask your practice manager to complete the survey. Survey responses must be based on actual data, not estimates.
  • To prevent duplicate data being submitted, survey data should be submitted on behalf of your entire practice or organization – not just one provider.
  • Review the survey questions before you start. You’ll likely need your payroll, billing and accounts receivable reports.
    • Important: you only need to provide data for the required questions (those with an asterisk *).
    • The survey includes an OPTION to collect staff compensation data. You can skip that (even though it looks like it’s required.) Or, if you want free access to national staff compensation data, you can provide that information.
    • The survey lists RVU data as required. However, if you don’t capture RVU data, MGMA will make an exception. You can still complete the survey without RVU data!
  • Learn about the new automated survey process. These resources can help.

Steps for survey completion

  1. Go to the Survey landing page: data.mgma.com | Participate in a Survey.
  2. Login or create an account for free. You will be prompted to verify your contact information and accept the survey legal agreement.
  3. Complete the Practice Profile first. View the Practice Profile Survey Guide if you have questions.
  4. Select the Compensation and Production survey. Please report data for each physician, NP and PA in your practice.
  5. View MGMA’s Data Automation User Guide for instructions to upload your survey data.
    • Export your system reports to Excel. You’ll likely need:
      1. Payroll system reports (such as ADP, Kronos, Lawson, Paychex, PayCom, Quickbooks, Paylocity)
      2. Billing and accounts receivable reports
    • In Excel, insert a row above your report headers and map them to MGMA’s list of required headers. DO include a unique identifier (NPI, employee ID, etc.) for each physician, advanced practice provider and management/staff personnel (if you choose to report this info).
    • Drag-and-drop or upload your file(s) to the new survey platform.
    • Some good news: mapping is a one-time activity. Next year, the system will “remember” how you mapped the data and will do it automatically! Also, MGMA is happy to help you with mapping or anything else related to the survey. Just call them at 877-275-6462, ext. 1895 or email survey@mgma.org.
