ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study which found that most trends in how U.S. physicians organize and practice medicine are likely to lead to higher spending and declining access to care for lower-income people. The study says that some of these trends could lead to overuse of services or questionable quality of care, noting that more physician services are subject to self-referral incentives. The authors also point to the steady decline in the proportion of physicians willing to care for uninsured and Medicaid patients.
