We're back about -- coming to bring -- doctor Martin.
He's well and he's been with this group.
Before we always love having her.
-- selling some of these innovations are not new to you you've been doing a number of years in your practice not taking insurance but.
I want to specifically address when obamacare requires people have insurance but what they do they work directly with you or doctor not a maker doctor champion.
Are they gonna have to have double coverage in a situation like that -- -- still gonna have to satisfy the government to.
That's an excellent question governor and the answer is no.
Doctors such as doctor -- a maker and doctor championed by the way I wanna congratulate them and their patients for this wonderful opportunity that -- if it's a sit down.
No we have a section in the Omnicare thirteen no one that the but it isn't a law.
That patients will be able to apply what they pay for us to the actuarial.
Their premium so that will actually be deducted.
Now we have to wait for the government to come up with the regulations and you know that obamacare is a little bit behind the eight ball here.
So we're waiting for that to be put in the regulations but.
It will be there it is in the -- yes there it is.
I want to ask you to view a -- -- let me start with you on this one.
The privacy issue why is it that you would be able to keep our records secret but obamacare wouldn't.
Because we don't bill insurance.
We don't send in those horrific codes that really are about building codes they're not about what's clinically going on with the patient.
There about a coding system.
They actually violate privacy.
Give you an example.
The patient came to the office and had a question about how that could prevent hypertension.
Something that -- -- their family I would be able to discuss it with about well.
There it's already paid for in their retainer -- be able to follow up with them in a month to see if they understood what I said if they had any other questions.
As opposed to a Doctor Who works in the system who have to build up -- to get paid.
That code would be hypertension and that patient would be plagued with that diagnosis for the rest of their life.
I would -- the patients in this country and every American that the IRS the NSA.
Horrific what -- done to violate our privacy.
But the HHS.
The Health and Human Services Department.
Even worse they have access to every record in this country.
Every medical record governor and every time we contribute to that.
There -- third this isn't that called the meaningful use this is this computerized system.
We're doctors put in boxes they they actually checkoff boxes yes I did this -- they did that big of a bonus.
They violate their patients' privacy to get a bonus.
Well I'm Laura Brown's -- doctor champion said I could not do that I will not do that my patients' records never leave my office.
We've only got a couple of minutes -- got to be very quick here with both doctor champion and doctor not a maker doctor chanting.
Are your patients protected in the manner in which you.
Provide medicine so that they don't have to give up a lot of things whether it's -- Social Security number are details about their health care and their medical conditions.
Well they are now originally I -- tried to cooperate with the electronic medical record.
Program that was part of the stimulus package.
It was an absolute nightmare I was working for the computer not for the patient and when I did this at the beginning of the year I scrap that everything is back to paper charts I no longer ask for anyone's also -- number I don't want that.
If someone was gonna get my -- record they have to break into my office to do it at this point.
And -- on the maker is it.
-- -- -- Longer periods of time and you know not I'm not asking you reveal anything about personal income but you're making house calls I never heard -- that since watching Marcus Welby on TV.
So are you able -- they can weigh as much money as you would have if you were in the government kind of controlled health care system.
Well -- a -- my lifestyle and and -- is actually better I can provide better patient care but.
Without the administrative costs and overhead.
It's amazing we actually statistically looked at -- 22% on average of a physicians' time is administrative overhead mostly insurance.
If you take that point 2% out times all the physicians in the country you've added a 165000.
To the workforce but we consider ourselves Marcus -- with an iPhone.
We do enjoy those house calls can.
Bring back the high touch feel medicine and I couldn't agree more with.
The -- going -- that.
It is your your privacy is very much.
Did not secure.
-- is actually a huge barrier that the health.
Insurance portability and accountability act has no use whatsoever in this day and age when it was written The Spice Girls were at the top of the charts.
It needs to be over.
-- well I want to thank quality it has been -- -- fascinating and informative conversation to find out.
That it doesn't have to be all one size fits all let obamacare do it.
Doctor champion -- on the maker doctors -- all of you thank you very very much.
A lot of I hope -- -- from Washington.
Hope they understand that they are better ways to give health care to American citizens in this incredible big government solution called Obama care.
Somebody will pay attention.
