    Hi everyone, I d really appreciate if someone knowledgable in this issue can answer my question. I would like to find out what kind of options do board eligible doctors (those who finish residency and have licence) who don't intend to take board certification exam have of working as a physician. I understand that u can work up to 5 years post residency anywhere until u pass ur boards. If u choose not to take board certifcation, can u still make a decent living as a physician (most likely working for others I guess). If u have any examples of such people please share. Also what insurance companies in tri-state area would reimburse a board eligible doctor who is not board certified. ( I understand that some like medicaid and some HMOs won't, but which do?) If u are familiar with issue I d love to hear ur input. Thanx a lot.
