Did I ever tell you how much I hate United Healthcare? Look at this trash announcement above. This is for doctors who still want to play with them. I do not.
Each doctor can register and see how they were “designated”. How creepy is that? And who the f&ck are they to judge anyone? Why do insurance companies think they control the patients and the doctors and can do whatever they want? It disgusts me. Sorry, I digressed there. Moving on.
Let’s see how you can be designated:
- Premium Care Physician – You meet their quality criteria and cost efficiency criteria. The first is unproven and the second is you save them money probably at the expense of the patient.
- Quality Care Physician – You meet their quality standards but you don’t make them enough money.
- Does Not Meet Premium Quality Criteria – You suck to them.
- Not Evaluated for Premium Care – You are dead to them.
These judgmental bastards are treating doctors like something you see in the supermarket:
This is a joke and needs to be stopped. It is their rules on quality and cost efficiency and that is how they decided to pay you or tell patients about you. They DO NOT need proof for any of this because they believe they are in control. It’s their money, right? NO! It’s the patients’ money and here is the problem. No one asked insurance companies to be the stewards of patients’ health. Doctors have also had this role!
We let them take it.
It is time we take it back!
