Description

New York Magazine looks at the lowering of doctors' income in recent years. The story reveals that, mainly because of the managed-care scheme, physicians can no more charge as much as they want. The article points out that increasing paperwork, emphasize on teamwork, more informed patients and meager co-pays are additional factors contributing to the erosion of doctors' independence and power. "There has been a vast, largely unnoticed change in the organization of the medical labor force .... from now on, doctors will be employees like everyone else," reports the magazine.
