Yeah but do you really think he is getting vet pay? I don't think so. Even if he is, he probably has a low guarantee so he's not very expensive.
I think what Jane said is right. They want to make sure they keep him around because he is talented rather then lose him and have to hire someone else or hire a inexperienced actor. I think this is very much like the contract players that came on under Hogan.
I don't think this is a long-term thing and I've heard from a few people over the years (don't ask who because it's people off the boards who I have to sort of protect LOL) that it's much easier and more preferred, particularly now, to put someone on contract. It protects the show from losing the actor and it's cheaper then recurring in that you don't have to pay them everytime they appear.
I think it's unfair to lump this in with the cast cuts. The guy won't last long. Nothing the show has done so far suggests him becoming a permanent player beyond the Nicole story. I think you can make the case that Dr. Taylor may but not Dr. Baker.
