SPECIALIST PHYSICIANS AND EMERGENCY CARE

Hosted by
You're in the emergency room, you have insurance and a specialist still refuses to see you. What will you do? Reports suggest that more and more specialist physicians aren't coming into the emergency room when called, saying insurance companies are paying too little, too late. Hospitals say their hands are tied. Are we asking too much of emergency services? Who is accountable for guaranteeing quality of care?
