Question: Why Don’t the Insurance Companies Send All Their Patients to DPC Doctors?

You would think that since DPC doctors do not send ONE bill to the insurance companies that Anthem, UnitedHealthcare, etc. would want all their patients to go to DPC doctors, right? They would also need less staff who spend time processing, and rejecting, bills from primary care doctors. It doesn’t make sense…..or does it? Could it be that these insurance companies:

  • Want full control of the patients, as far as referrals, labs and diagnostic tests?
  • Want all the data from the EMR and quality metrics so that they can sell it? DPC doctors refuse to give them patient information or do metrics, which is the way it should be.

What are your thoughts?
