I support this resolution for many reasons. Some insurance plans choose to limit their participating doctors and they try to reimburse non-participant with lower reimbursement- hospital employed physicians get special treatment from the emergency department staff by calling them instead of the on-call physician when it is most convenient to them. Bad cases, uninsureds, late night, etc. are given to the on-call doctor. Therefore, non-participating physicians should be reimbursed at a higher rate based on community’s fair prices.
