Independent Physicians Switch To New Practice Models

By: Fred Segal

According to a recent article in the Kaiser Health News, physicians who are currently practicing independently are looking to innovative practice models in order to either maintain or increase their income. The article specifically discusses physicians switching to a “subscription based model.” A subscription based model is one in which patients pay an annual fee and the physician limits the number of his or her patients.   In addition, the article states that “a new report projects the number of physicians who practice independently — rather than become employed by medical groups or health systems — will fall to 36% by 2013, from 57% in 2000.”
