Those of us around for 2 or 3 decades inadvertently helped create this debacle by giving small discounts to insurance plans that turned into unsustainable reimbursements. It is young doctors who think private practice is impossible who need to be encouraged and supported in networks demonstrating that fee for service private practice can rise again and flourish. Physicians ultimately hold the best hands and our patients deserve the kind of care we were trained to give. Where there are big groups owned by hospitals, there should be many openings for practitioners who provide better service to blossom.
