As we are all being told by OneCare about how wonderful value-based care is, why do I as a consumer/patient feel like it is just another trick or scam to keep us dependent on very expensive administrative oversight that is not needed?
Medical providers need to have the independence to make their own decisions about how to treat a patient. Yes, I fill in surveys saying how wonderful my personal provider is, but never get a chance to say how horrible the system is!
