Working FAQs

Unlike traditional locums tenens agencies, you control how much or how little you’d like our recruiters involved in your placement. If you are the type of person who would like to browse jobs and update your profile at 2 am, more power to you! If you’d rather be guided through the process by a recruiter, we’re ready for that, too.

Our secret sauce is in our proprietary matching engine. It takes into consideration all your preferences you’ve shared with us, including your rate requirements, where you’d like to work, your credentials, and more, compares them with open job opportunities, and then notifies you if a match is available. That means no more searching through pages of open jobs for the right fit, and no more recruiter phone calls when the job doesn’t work for you. We are more interested in providing you quality matches than bombarding you with a high number of matches.

For providers, Lucidity is 100% free.

We treat your data as we like ours to be treated. Every precaution is made to secure your documents and data using industry-standard encryption and password protection.

We never share your contact information or credentialing information with a medical practice until you consent to be submitted (or marketed to) a specific facility. Even within our organization, your personal info is only available to those required to find you a great job; in fact, our technology makes it possible to be submitted for jobs without engaging with a recruiter at all!

Nope. Malpractice coverenge will either be provided by Lucidity directly or by the medical practice where you are going to work.
As we get to know you and you fill out your profile, we’re already thinking ahead to this phase. As much as possible, we won’t make you answer the same questions more than once. There will always be practice-specific paperwork, but we aim to make it all as painless as possible. There is no fee for physicians in the credentialing process, of course.
For some jobs, your travel may be included in the compensation package. If not, it’s typically negotiable. Whether you request travel reimbursement is your preference entirely, and we handle any reimbursement requests as quickly as possible once you submit them.
We will pay you every week via direct deposit based on your timesheets. As a bonus, if you work as scheduled, you don’t even need to submit a timesheet– the app will submit on your behalf, and then your pay will be on its way.
Sure! We have partnerships with medical licensure companies who can help you obtain or renew state medical licenses, DEAs, or CSRs at a discounted price for Lucidity providers.
Because of our great relationships with our hiring partners, we often get permanent job placement opportunities in addition to locums tenens. When you sign up, we’ll ask whether you’d be interested in locums tenens only, permanent placement only, or both, which will define which jobs you are alerted about.
Yes! While currently the majority of our jobs are for MDs and DOs, our network of NPs, CRNAs, and PAs is expanding rapidly. You should expect to see more jobs for advanced practitioners on Lucidity soon.
Lucidity does not currently hire healthcare professionals outside of MD, DO, PA, or NP. However, we are part of Health Carousel, who has been staffing healthcare professionals for over 15 years. If you’d like us to connect you to any of our sister companies in the Health Carousel Travel Network, just shoot us a message here.
While you don’t need to add your phone number to your profile in order to receive job matches, it increases the probability of you being placed at a job you like. Our providers with a phone number receive text messages when a job match becomes available for them, allowing them to kickstart the process ASAP. Don’t worry– we only text or call when we have a hot job for you.
Because our parent company, Health Carousel, is the umbrella brand for multiple healthcare staffing agencies, this gives you access to an even larger network of jobs. We share open jobs amongst the brands, giving you more options.
Absolutely! Fill out our contact form and we will get in touch with you soon.

Hiring FAQs

You are welcomed to post as many jobs as you’d like for free.

It’s free to set up accounts with Lucidity. Your organization can add as many as you want. Our goal is to make you more efficient, and if that means adding your entire HR department for your hospital, go for it!

It’s free to set up an account with Lucidity. As an employer, we want to get you access to post jobs to our provider network as soon as possible. You won’t pay a dime until you find the right candidate for the job. 

No problem. We are happy to post your jobs for you.
Just a couple minutes. We’ll have your job opportunity on the platform for physicians to view ASAP, and shortly after, we’ll notify those who are a match for the requirements in your job posting.

While not every provider in the Health Carousel Locum Network has opted in to browse jobs via the Lucidity platform, we do share your jobs with candidates throughout HCLN if they match the criteria you define.

We recruit providers through various channels including search engines, social media, job boards, and physician networks. Because Lucidity is a digital-first platform, we tend to attract a different type of provider searching for a self-serve option with fewer phone calls required to find jobs. This means your jobs are getting in front of a unique audience of providers not found in other locum tenens company databases.

We are locum tenens and direct hire friendly! While Lucidity is currently only supporting physicians, advanced practice providers, and licensed counselors, our parent company Health Carousel is one of the leading staffing companies for nurses. We would be more than happy to design a solution that allows you to hire both physicians and nurses with us.

The main difference for you is that by leveraging technology, we are able to charge a fraction of the cost for placements than a traditional agency might. We also engage our providers differently, which means we often attract a different type of physician or advanced practitioner than a tradiional locum agency. 

We built a proprietary matching engine and notification system that automatically notifies providers that match to your job the moment it is entered into the system. Most of our providers opt to be notified via text message, but they also have the option to be notified via email or notifications inside the app. This basically fast-tracks your recruiting process, getting your job in front of the right providers as quickly as possible.

Yes, our platform allows providers and employers to propose rates and settle on one everyone is satisfied with. If you prefer to work through an account manager, we always have that option, too. 

Once a provider expresses interest in one of your jobs and you agree they are a good match, you’ll have the opportunity to work via an account manager/recruiter and set up time to speak with the provider to vet and hire.

Feel free to use your own malpractice policy if that is preferred. We also maintain a highly-rated policy for providers to use if you’d prefer; time limits are always sufficient to cover a provider for your particular state or your facility’s requirements.

Part of the appeal of Lucidity for providers is that they are in the driver’s seat. We make it easy for them to log in at any time and update information, and prompt them to do so when any info is unknown or outdated. We collect dozens of attributes on each candidate, starting with their work experience and extending all the way into their preferences for their next job like rate, start date, telemedicine interest, direct hire vs. locum preferences, and willingness to travel.

Since the provider’s key information and documentation is typically already uploaded to our system, all we need to do is verify them for authenticity, legibility, and expiriation. If you need specific documents completed to fulfill your credentailing requirements, just let us know and we can add them to our providers’ checklist.
Travel reimbursement is up to you and is typically decided on during negotiations. If agreed upon with the provider, we will handle the reimbursement process.
Absolutely! Call, email, or text us any time and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Contact Us.
