Podcast 185: A Spirited Discussion on Medicare’s ‘Doc Fix’ Fix for Reimbursement

(2 votes, average: 3.00 out of 5)

A group of physicians, economists, and medical students gathered on Medstro to talk about Medicare’s solution to the decades-old “doc fix” problem — it’s how you get paid for caring for Medicare patients.

The chat was occasioned by an essay in the New England Journal of Medicine by Meredith Rosenthal, an economist and a close observer of Medicare policy and reimbursement in general. She joins the discussion and helps sort things out. You’ll want to listen, but we warn you: it’s contentious!
