Believe me, doctors know to the dollar how much they can milk the insurance companies. Biggest scam going on in the country today in my opinion.
just me - i think it's a pretty much evenly divided two-way street.
the doctors know what they can get by with, and the insurance
companies know how long they can put off paying legitimate
charges from an honest doctor. as time goes by, it gets worse
and worse and the merry-go-round spins faster. and the lawyers
hop on about mid way. the poor patient is the one that gets spun
off and flung to the ground.
i say that because i've seen the way automotive insurers finegle
with repairmen when it comes to major mechanical work and body
work. they want to use the absolute cheapest cheap ***t that can
be used, and try to cut labor to the bone. i know many many excellent
mechanics and paint and body men who have gotten into other
fields or retired early. one of my good friends and one of the best
body and paint men i know finally closed up his shop and does
building and contracting work now with about 1/2 the hassle of
dealing with details like he had to when he ran his body shop.
my old doctor closed up shop after obama care came into being.
he said if he wanted to not get paid while still dishing out money
for employees and overhead, he'd just stay at home everyday
and sit watch t.v. in his drawers.
