Specialists not accepting insurance?

Hi all! (I am new to this, this is my 2nd thread in this forum) In my experience with private specialists in NJ(specifically with my sister who has various developmental disabilities, I have found that 2 of her docs(Pediatric Neurologist and DB Pediatrician) both have fee-for-service practices and do not participate in any insurance plans. I was wondering if this was a commonality/new trend in private practice in terms of these 2 specialties(in which appointments can take over an hour), and how this model is viewed (positively/negatively) in the medical community? Thanks!
