Terminating insurance contracts

We are in the process of returning to the old days of medicine and terminating our insurance contracts.  Blue Cross is done effective September 1 and Blue Shield will be ending in March of next year.  Medi-Care will be terminated at the end of this year.  Why are we doing this?  Because they are placing onerous rules on how I practice and if i don’t’ comply, they keep chipping away at the already poor reimbursement.  I will miss the breast reconstructions and coming through with the answers for horrendous wounds but I won’t miss dealing with the insurance companies the jumping through the hoops they require of its contracted providers.  We will have a cash fee should you wish to still have us involved in your care.
