A Happy Hospitalist: You Are Living In The Medicare Tomato
You want to know what the process is like for a physician to make a living as a physician.
Look only toward the Medicare Tomato. Imagine for the moment that you have been taken out of reality and into the alternate bizarro world of the Medicare Tomato. In this analogy, the Medicare Tomato represents a day in the life of a practicing physician.
An easy to understand (and mouthwatering) analogy of how we’ve gotten into the Medicare payment morass, and where it’s quite possibly headed. We’re much nearer then end than the beginning.
