In order to provide the best service possible, I don’t participate in insurance billing. Here’s why:
I remember billing insurance. It was a nightmare.
I was very unhappy because I wasn’t being paid for my work. I would turn in my claims and something was always wrong and I would always get denied.
Here is where it gets really interesting! Listen to my words very carefully and try to understand how my thoughts change when I write about this. I knew, at that time, that I couldn’t pay the rent in $4.00 co-pays per head.
Did you hear what I just said? Did you see what I just thought ? Did you understand it? I just dwindled you and your existence down from a specific and beautifully unique human being into a head coming through my door.
Under this system, you’re not a real person anymore, you’re an insurance card.
Since you are now an insurance card, I will eventually push you into treatments you don’t need because I’ll get paid. I’ll push you away from treatments you need because I won’t get paid.
I refuse to put myself inside this position. I’m the Doctor, not the insurance company!
