Now they've gone too far!

Insurance companies control much of what we do in medical practice; where we send patients for labs; pre-certs for radiology tests; referrals for visits. Crazy. But this takes the cake.

One major carrier just sent me a letter that dictates how my semen analysis patients can procure their specimens.
  • PPO patients can use DVDs
  • POS patients can only get magazines
  • HMO patients get National Geographic
  • Out-of-network patients can use an escort
This has just gone too far. We must make a stand!!
Have a nice April 1st.
