As the number of independent doctors shrinks, unfavorable market dynamics grow. This results in patients having fewer choices, poorer outcomes and higher health-care costs.  Your support helps us all reach the following goals.

  • Stop consolidation of hospitals and medical practices.
  • Educate patients and the community about how consolidations raise costs, reduce quality, decrease access, eliminate jobs, and result in unnecessary tests and procedures.
  • Increase transparency, so consumers can know prices before they have procedures and choose the most affordable options.
  • Inform lawmakers about why independent doctors are critical to health-care quality, cost and the economy.
  • Work with insurance companies to bring payments to hospital-employed doctors in line with payments to independent doctors.
  • Stop hospitals from the common practice of diverting patients from independent doctors to employed ones.
  • Establish one voice that will represent the interests of independent doctors to legislative and regulatory agencies.
  • Help doctors stay independent.

If hospital facilities charged the same as independent doctors for the same services for 66 groups of services, taxpayers would save $900 million a year in Medicare costs. - MedPAC
