Senate’s plan to salary physicians… Thanks to @DrWes


There it is… in the mark up document above… page 24

– Insert a new bullet as follows: ―3. Promote care coordination between health care providers that transition health care providers away from fee-for-service based reimbursement and toward salary-based payments

Although it’s in black and white… the *true colors* of the health care reform package effort are coming through loud and clear.

Physicians account for less than (I believe) 10% of the overall health care cost burden, yet are always in the cross-hairs. Should be an interesting week.
