    what they don't like?  Doctors have power to unite and fix a lot of the problems they face.  They could make demands to the insurance companies and carry out actions that would force those changes.  I have always wondered why they don't.

      Really. Like what? Whats their leverage? A lot of health providers' gripes are about regs related to Medicare. What are they supposed to do to hold the govt's feet to the fire? Set up a tent city in Central Park? Go on strike?

        without doctors.  What if they all refuse to pay or deal with insurance companies?  There has to be something they can do.
