re: US Healthcare Spending Dramatically Slows in Wake of ACA - YipSkiddlyDooo
On the subject of hospitals, get this: the outpatient surgical specialty clinics at my facility can charge a "facility" fee to post-op patients. Oh, you had surgery and are in the global period for the next 3 months? Doesn't matter, we get to charge you a fee to be seen in the clinic despite the fac...

[quote]EPIC domination of the market gives me hope...a little. [/quote] I like using EPIC, the problem I have with it is cost. Unless I can start billing patients for their share of my EMR costs, which given the fact that we are all forced to use one and any system that is worth a damn costs $$$,...

re: First Time Homebuyer purchasing a home without 20% down. - YipSkiddlyDooo
The monthly PMI payment is negotiable, though depending on the lender, your credit, income, etc they may not budge. After graduating residency I went with a lender that didn't have a physician loan program because the rate was better than what I could have got with a physician loan (would have o...

re: What's the end game for liberals in regard to their support of Islam? - YipSkiddlyDooo
So what about the majority of Muslims worldwide who believe Sharia law ought to be the law of the land, and actively persecute homosexuals? More U.S. Muslims than not believe homosexuality should be actively discouraged as well. How is this any different than the conservative Christian block that mo...

re: Medical Industry: Biggest Crooks Ever - YipSkiddlyDooo
Don't tell those folks that surgeons fees in many cases have actually gone down since 1985. You know any other profession that makes less for a job than they did 30 years ago? I only use 1985 as an example because I have a fee schedule from that particular year. While reimbursements certainly ar...

re: Medical Industry: Biggest Crooks Ever - YipSkiddlyDooo
Actually you can thank ED docs (who actually are crooks at academic centers), who are more and more frequently independent contractors and able to bill as out-of-network providers...despite the fact that the local hospital is considered in-network for your particular payer. As a specialist at an...
