42% Ophthalmologists Will Drop Poor Insurers
Medscape Ophthalmologist Compensation Report: 2013, 42 percent of ophthalmologist respondents said they would drop the worst-paying insurers or those who created the most denials — or that they already do.
However, around 22 percent said they needed all payers and 12 percent said dropping those insurers was inappropriate behavior. When asked about Medicare and Medicaid patients specifically, 61 percent said they would continue taking new and current Medicare and Medicaid patients. Only 9 percent planned to stop taking Medicare/Medicaid patients and 30 percent didn't know yet.
