I'd be checking up on those docs and asking why they are able to treat patients at such low rates. Is that the only place those docs could get a job?

Doesn't work like that.

Lots of solo docs out there, working for themselves, contracting with insurers because they (the docs) are fearful of not having any patients.

So those docs don't want to contract for low rates, but they're fearful to NOT contract.

And they don't want to relocate somewhere else because they need to be near family, certain schools for the kids, etc.
