A job for doctors, not insurance companies - Times Union

The New York State Medical Society is pressing for passage of a bill that would permit physicians to negotiate collectively for higher fees. Paul Hamlin's editorial in the Albany TimesUnion argues that the legislation is necessary to "enhance the ability of our patients to obtain the care they need and . . . help counter the insurers' complete dominance of physicians and patients." The specific legislation cited is S.3186A (Hannon, R-Nassau) and A.2474A (Canestrari, D-Cohoes).
