    Hi,

    A quick note about insurance and the interaction required by doctors
    The article stated that private practice doctors needed to deal with insurance
    and that Doctors in hospitals do not ( they have people hired to do that )

    My understanding (Wife is a doctor) is that even in a hospital setting ( she works for a university hospital ) the doctor is constantly fighting with insurance and their Dr. representatives to justify treatments as necessary.

    I want to note that my above point is mentioned later in the article.

    The line i was concerned about was ” by working for a hospital, doctors don’t need to worry about the business of running a medical practice or dealing with the administration behind insurance companies.”

    Charles,, I can’t find the thread to our back-and-forth messages re the Doctors story. I have questions about the handling of links and need to discuss certain changes that were made to my story. Please tell me how to locate our messages.
