If a doctor won't take Medicare/Medicaid patients, I think they should be forced to reimburse the govt for all the subsidies they've accepted...training facilities/salaries for interns & residents, guaranteed low-interest loans for med school, etc.I shared the above suggestion on another board and one of the M.D.s who posts there responded:Sure, if they pay me back for all the free hours of care given while in medical school and residency.Medical students perform some important functions while learning and earn NO income. Its mostly scutt work, dressing changes, helping mobilize patients post-op, making sure tests/procedures have been done. Not even minimum wage.Residents often work 80-100 hours per week. Every week. With 2 weeks vacation. They are lucky if that comes out to minimum wage._________________Just to set the record straight. --fleg
