    In what states in Northeast do doctors make more money? I always thought NY was more, especially for specialists?

    What about semi-urban place like new hampshire or maine?

    Hey is there any website which could help me to compare, which states have more medicaid and which less, and similar statistics?

    Also what is good about FFS?? I would rather overcharge the health insurance company, i wouldnt feel it right to charge my neighbor anything at all.

    And what do you think of the prospect of a group of doctors making their own private practice in a city, where managed care is well established? Must they built a new hospital or what? i.e. Boston or the nearby suburbs?

    Thank you.

    "Hail the confederacy" is obscene.

    If you're going into rads, even a terrible deal is still better than at least 98% of the US population. It saddens me that this is so important to so many rad applicants.

    Hey,
    Im neither a Southerner nor a radiology applicant. Just a curious student.

    I've been reading a similar thread and noticed that all the specialties are being threatened by managed care.

    So Boston is taken over by managed care, while places like Wyoming will stay American for a long time(hopefully). In NYC, people who make a lot of money have either very exclusive customers or the doctors just solicit car accident victims and workers compensation folks.

    Im interested in what the future and the present will be for NH/Maine and Alaska!
    Is Maine already taken over by managed care? And why are there so few jobs in Alaska?

    Thank you.

    what you fail to realize is that the article is from the year 2000. The economy has tanked since then.

    The northeast is one of the worst places to practice in terms of salary. I don't know why, but the northeast is the most liberal area of the country as well as the west coast,which incidentally has the LOWEST salary range. These two areas of the country are also the most expensive to live. The northeast has obscene porperty taxes, Long Island the highest in the country.

    Boston is not in Massachusettes, it is in Taxachusettes. Yet there are so many filthy rich I bankers, lawyers, businessmen in the northeast, tons on millionaires in Silicon Valley.

    Maybe physicians are not valued as much in these parts of the countries as say, accountants, lawyers, you know, the people who really make a difference.

    So, let me say, HAIL THE CONFEDERACY, the home of the highest salaries, lowest managed care, and most laid back lifestyle.
