I don't think that by refusing to provide a service like free telemedicine as opposed to a patient presenting for care is going to have the dire consecuences you propose.
But I also think that people have to have personal responsibility for their healthcare. They need "skin in the game"
Certainly making efforts to change behavior, alter diets, avoid risky behaviors like drinking to excess, use of illegal drugs for mind altering, If these are not done, why does anyone have moral obligation to help out when bad things happen as a result of the patient's poor choices and behaviors? Especially when so muc is spent and invested on making people aware of the consecuences of bad behaviors, and offer programs to help correct them, etc>Doing the right thing, also applies to the individual too. SO is it a bad thing for an orthopedist to out a femur fracture up in traction inlieu of going to the operating room for a medullary rod for thos epatients who can't pay for the surgery? Outcome is the same.just it takes longer for the fracture to heal in traction then it does with a rod. What about CABG? SHould we be paying for CABG for smokers? What about type II diabetics who are not compliant? Yep, I am a strong believer in personal repsonsibility. I am also in favor of providing care for the needy but believe that the more fortunate can get different, not necessarily better care. For me it's like owning a car. Some people can afford a Lambourghini, others only a HUgo. If the taxpayers are paying for the car, then the recipient should get a Hugo. Marty

And if denial of that service leads to death? bodily harm? or permanent disability? Part of what defines us as a profession is that we have a duty to act, not for money, but because it's the moral and ethical thing to do. I will leave this profession if that mindset prevails....sorry!

ANdrew, If a service is not covered then we shouldn't provide it. I would not complain that "you can bill all you want, it's still not going to get paid". So if the law prevents a physician form billing for a service tha tis not covered, ie most government programs , then those patients just don't get offered the service. THose who decide to pay and are allowed to , would then abe able to get a service, otherwise denied to others. That is life..
