Thank you to the community at large, who support
the vision of IPALC and the leaders who devote their time, talent
and treasure to keep goals in focus. Without the patients of
Lee County, the Physicians of Lee County wouldn't matter!
here to find an independent doctor in Lee County.
I wish to
extend a safe and fun summer to our readers. We recently reviewed
our website activity and I am very pleased to learn that folks are
finding us at an ever rising rate. We have recently engaged more of
the private physician management staff with a request that they
keep all of us more informed with relevant blog postings or other
updates regarding our member's activity and services.
this past week has not shone a very bright light on the health care
scene. Specifically, I read that the insurance companies are now
grousing about their profit caps and also requesting very large
premium hikes in some markets- especially the Medicaid eligible
groups. Medicaid enrollment is up dramatically resulting from the
large PPCAC/Obamacare Medicaid expansion. Also, a very good editorial piece by Charles Krauthhammer accurately
reflects the physician mood resulting from all the bureaucratic interference
presently occurring in an unabashed fashion in your doctor's
office. This affects you the patient as access shrivels up from
doctors leaving private practice. If you care about access and
quality I recommend you speak up in defense of less documentation
regulation on your doctors. It is slowing down care and it isn't
clear at all that quality is improving.
One of the
reasons I agreed to preside over IPALC was to try to facilitate a better and more transparent health care
market in Lee County. I encourage patients who are looking at their
physician options request fee information for services. Do you know
that many outpatient visits with Lee Memorial Hospital doctors include
additional facility fees after the physician fee? Your independent
doctors don't have those fees attached to their visits. In general
it is more cost effective so see an IPALC doctor.
