In my recent healthcare newsletter (archives and subscription info can be found at my website at www.rtacpa.com under the resources tab), I wrote an article on Silent PPOs. In the February 17th issue of Medical Economics (www.memag.com), the Web Poll asked this question:
Have you been a victim of Silent PPOs?
The following were the responses:
5% No, I check my contracts carefully
36% Yes, but I can’t stop it
25% Yes, and I protest when I am
34% I have no idea-I’m going to check now
"I HAVE NO IDEA"? What is that all about???? Now you see why I stay so busy as a healthcare consultant!!!
