Doctors-Insurers Confrontation Heats Up

The Dallas Morning News ran a long but interesting story about the increasing frictions between doctors and health insurance companies regarding reimbursement for medical bills. The gist of the story is that insurance companies are denying so many claims that doctors’ incomes are dropping even though the doctors are seeing more patients.

This reminds me of the medical malpractice tort reform debate in Texas a few years ago. Trial lawyers all agreed there was a medical malpractice insurance crisis, but we had no success convincing either doctors or consumers that the problem was with the insurance companies, and not with the malpractice laws. I think now doctors have finally come to realize that insurance companies, whether health insurance or malpractice insurance, are concerned only with own bottom lines.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
