All Doctors To Be Landlords

For the family docs “buying” into the Medical Home Model let me just warn you that the neighborhood is getting crowded.   According to the American Medical News, “a handful of non-primary care groups have qualified within the general program, but an expansion would allow more doctors to participate.”  So there you go.  You thought they were going to single us primary care doctors out to reward us but now there are others who want to join the party.  Do you think you may want to fight and stake your claim here or be the wussies you have always been?  I already know the answer.

    Absolutely right. Wussie FPs let private sector big insurance run the show, and now they are paying big time. Agree that they will continue to be wussies.
