Healthcare is no longer the personal affair it was even only ten years ago. Today, with the pervasiveness of managed care companies and other insurers, your doctor, the one person who should know your healthcare needs the best, is often beholden to your HMO or PPO. While doctors have access to more medical devices, diagnostic tests and drugs than ever before, the insurance companies have been, and will continue to be, motivated not by your best interest but rather their own bottom line. Because of the increased pressure placed on doctors by insurers to operate highly efficient offices, personal time spent with your doctor has likely declined over the past several years. The result? More misdiagnoses and medical malpractice.
In fact, statistics on medical malpractice reveal that for every medical error reported, over 50 go unreported. Don’t pay for your healthcare provider’s negligence.
