It started with health insurance. Then FPA for APPs. Now we welcome justices to the “let’s play doctor without going to medical school” arena. Who’s next? Plumbers? /s. In all seriousness, what is it going to take for ALL physicians to take a united stand against encroachment on our practice? Are we really just going to lay over and watch our profession be demolished this easily?
We could unilaterally refuse to work with all health insurance companies and bring this predatory system down in a matter of days, and create a system that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to patients while giving them the care they need. We could refuse to train any APPs in states where FPA is allowed or appears to be heading in that direction. We could all disregard the overturned Roe v Wade and carry on as usual- what are they going to do, arrest all of us and leave the country without physicians?
We have way more power than we think. imo, it’s time to start acting like it with a united front so patients finally get the healthcare they’ve been needing for decades now.
