ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report on the decline of the physicians' practice income in the U.S. in 2008. Reported by the Center for Studying Health System Change, the decline may stop physicians from accepting Medicaid patients. The study's authors said that physicians may cease giving charity care once they do not own their practice or further larger studies anymore. The data used in the study were based from physician surveys held between 1996 and 2005.
