I thought Kaiser docs were paid to not be very productive. Wasn't someone on here posting that they couldn't do procedures faster than every 30 minutes do to Kaiser rules. Sounded like a VA gig

I think certain specialites/departments are utilized to a greater degree. Probably regional variation as well. Medicaid expansion increased their volume.

this suit reveals that Kaiser really seems to pressure physicians for efficiency and also seems very inflexible...of course it is just one side of the story

I'm sure if every large corporate entity was examined, there would be similar findings. Particularly large ortho based corps..ie ortho Carolina, Rothman institute, etc etc
