Cost of healthcare: The doctor is (not) in

This year keep more of your money. We know that doctors are only receiving 10% of healthcare dollars and you deserve more. With Patient Payment Solutions you will be able to gain a larger percentage then just the ten percent.  Cal Thomas from The Register Herald gives us a good insight on the shift with his article Cost of healthcare: The doctor is (not) in

 

 

A report from the Association of American Medical Colleges that “projected a shortage of 42,600 to 121,300 physicians by 2030, up from its 2017 projected shortage of 40,800 to 104,900 doctors.”

Only part of it has to do with the high cost of medical school and lengthy residencies. degrees, but quit medicine for reasons he explained to me in an email.

“The explanation for the exodus is very simple: Over the 40 years I had my medical office, that which is described as ‘the Practice of Medicine’ underwent a profound and ‘fundamental change’: In 1974, ‘Medicine’ was a transaction between patients (who needed diagnosis, treatment, and/or prevention) and physicians (who belonged to an exclusive class of professionals who worked under the demanding – and almost religious – mores of the Hippocratic Oath). and in dealing with the poor, ‘fees’ could be embarrassingly small.

“In 2018, ‘Medicine’ is a nationwide system of financial obfuscation, in which the ruling denizens are huge corporate entities that control scores of hospitals, or health insurance for millions of ‘subscribers,’ or pharmaceutical benefits, or psychiatric benefits, or physical therapy, or a hundred other niche ‘benefits’ for millions of people, who are paying exorbitant ‘premiums’ to support thousands of ‘vendors’, and have no idea what they are paying for.
