New AMA Principles for Physician Employment

The AMA recently adopted some new principles for employment of physicians, which in light of the recent consolidations, mergers and purchases of physician practices, should be read carefully by both physicians and their advisors.  The following should be of interest to most physicians who normally leave the billing and review of billings to their staff, a billing company or their employer: 

"Employed physicians have a responsibility to assure that bills issued for services they provide are accurate and should therefore retain the right to review billing claims as may be necessary to verify that such bills are correct. Employers should indemnify and defend, and save harmless, employed physicians with respect to any violation of law or regulation or breach of contract in connection with the employer’s billing for physician services, which violation is not the fault of the employee."

To read the four (4) pages of the AMA Principles, see the following:
