If you go to a specialist and are advised that the physician does not accept insurance beware. We have seen that some physicians, especially surgeons doing back surgery, who are not accepting insurance. We have discovered that some of the surgeons not accepting insurance have relationships with the manufacturers of the rods and devices that they want to implant. They receive stock incentives or money and do not disclose that information. We have also found that those not accepting insurance are more likely to do operations that are not necessary and not indicated.
If you see a surgeon who does not accept insurance, do the following:
- Get a second opinion.
- Check the physician’s credentials on your State’s web site.
- Check the AMA website to confirm the credentials.
- If the physician tells you that he/she has special expertise or knowledge do not take his/her word. Ask for copies of any articles on the surgery that have been published by that physician.
- If the physician tells you that he/she knows more than any other specialist in the field, consider walking out the door because no matter how specialized or how narrow the problem this is the United States and there will be at least 30 other physicians in the country with equal knowledge and skills.

EPISODES OF UNNECESSARY SURGERY CONTINUE
More and more patients are being victimized by unnecessary surgery. Once again the media is reporting physicians using patients to make money without any consideration for the patient.
As a patient you have to protect yourself.
Beware of the spine surgeons using unnecessary rods and screws. Ask the surgeon if he/she has any relationship to the company supplying the hardware.
Obtain second opinions.
