My cat gets better medical care than what UR/IMR is providing workers' right now.

Treating physicians in California know they're held to practice standards and can be sued for malpractice. Utilization Review (UR) physicians know they're not held to these practice standards and cannot be sued for malpractice. The solution is to create equity in practice so that both treating physicians and UR physicians are licensed in the states in which they practice and also have malpractice insurance in those states. The standard should be duty of care starting with repeal of SB 863.-- Robert L. Weinmann, MD, Editor, The Weinmann Report (www.politicsofhealthcare.com)
