Most physicians feel they are being over regulated. There are far too many government programs telling them how to provide patient care, and when the government isn’t interfering with their practice, the administrator of some HMO is on the physician’s back. All of this, of course, under the guise of keeping health care costs under control. I know this because, as Chief Public Health Officer, I wrote and enforced those regulations for over 22 years. In addition, I administered a Medicaid program and was the ever-diligent administrator of an HMO.
