CDC: Insurance Affects New Patient Acceptance
Posted by Clark Venable on 3/15/2007
Percentage of Office-Based Primary-Care Physicians Who Did Not Accept New Patients, by Expected Payment Source --- National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, United States, 2003--2004
"Although 94.2% of primary-care physicians reported in 2003--2004 that they were accepting new patients, acceptance varied by the patient's expected payment source. Among the physicians, 43.0% did not accept new charity cases, 29.3% did not accept new Medicaid patients, and 20.3% did not accept new Medicare patients. Only 7.0% did not accept new patients who self-paid."
