Concierge Physicians Fight Back

In response to the recent attempt by the state of Maryland to regulate concierge physicians as a form of insurance, the Society for Innovative Medical Practice Design (SIMPD) -- the national organization that represents concierge doctors -- has started to fight back.

Dr. Steve Knope has the scoop.

Patients have the right to seek medical care and physicians have the right to offer it on terms they find mutually acceptable. Both sides win they this freedom of contract is respected and protected by the government. It's good to see physicians defending their rights and their patients' rights.
