Court backs WI docs in pay dispute

The Journal Times, April 11, 2011
Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group in Racine, WI violated physicians? contracts in 2008 by retroactively changing doctors? pay halfway through the year, according to a decision filed this month in Racine County Circuit Court. The decision came almost two years after former Wheaton Franciscan-All Saints spine surgeon Branko Prpa, MD, filed a civil suit against All Saints? medical group for the 2008 pay change. Wheaton?s doctors including Prpa began 2008 working under a compensation model where they were paid based mostly on their specialty and prior year net service charges. But Wheaton switched in July 2008 to a compensation model that assigns a dollar amount to every type of office visit or procedure.
