I bet there was a plan to screw onc guys
I took an insurance class in college. The point of an insurance company is to collect as many premiums as possible and payout as few claims as possible. That is all they exist to do. Medicare and Medicaid are insurance companies too.
I bet there was a clandestine plan to screw the onc guys in stages.
Its just like this pay for performance garbage. They say they will pay docs extra to meet certain criteria. Well after we all run around jumping through hoops for them to toss us a couple of peanuts they will yank the rug out from under us. Once we are all doing this pay for performance thing they will cease paying for it. Then it will turn into a big game of gotcha. Oh you didn't document the patient's temperature at the right time, so now we aren't going to pay for the whole visit.
Guys it is a conspiracy and doctors need to wake up.
