So- I did it- and so must we all. Opt out of all 3rd party and work only with and for our patients. It is not easy, But it works !!!!!!! I am sooo happy in my practice now. I am working with like minded colleagues to create an “alternate universe” in which we can practice outside the chokehold of government. My fight now focuses on preserving our right to even do this.
We must be the paradigm shift and mount an ever vigilant defense and innovative Goliath offense. We must focus our efforts here. One thing we must do is fight against the insurer offering only restricted HMO plans that have 0 out of network coverage. We must fight against the usurious drug prices which make it impossible for patients to get what they need. And so much more. So like many of you I do not do MU EHR or even ICD 10- because I work solely for my patients. They thank me, they pray all physicians will follow suit, and ask me to refer them to other physicians and specialists who have gone direct care as well.
This is the only way we will makes change.
