You know by now that YOU are the reason I am here. Your health is my only goal. I work for YOU only.
The insurance industry was originally designed to spread risk and lower cost. It now does neither. As to spreading risk, many of the companies are increasing co-pays and deductibles to be sure you pay the premium AND the cost of care. This practice is a form of fraud.
The health insurance industry is corrupt to the core. It is fundamentally dishonest and adversarial to patients and providers. Some companies are hiring third parties to retroactively deny approved services going back two years, and billing the providers whatever was paid, and splitting what is paid with the parent company. There is significant pressure on providers to lower the standard of care, thus increasing risk to you, so that their liability is less and yours is more.
While I have always enjoyed caring for trauma victims, and I still do, there are certain casualty insurance companies (car insurance) that are known for not paying their bills and will to go to extraordinary lengths to be sure that your claims will never be paid. They will leave you, the patient, holding the bag every time. If you are in an accident, let us know about insurance arrangements. They do not affect your care, but there are certain insurance companies with whom we just cannot work because we know ahead of time how they will treat you and us.
Again, let me stress: I work for YOU. You deserve better care than your insurance plan will allow. I will not lower the standard of care I give you.
We have completely withdrawn from this fundamentally corrupt system. The result for you will be more efficient care without interference from insurance companies. Another advantage for you will be greatly increased privacy, as insurance companies sell your private information for side profit. You may now rest assured that NO information about you will ever leave these walls without your signed authorization.
Please know that I made this decision with the quality of your care in mind. This will in no way lower the quality of care you receive under this roof. On the contrary, I made this decision to preserve it.
Thank you for your understanding. I will gladly answer any questions you may have.
