This is just one more reason the for-profit health insurance system must go. We need single payer and we need it yesterday.

Insurers only have to "rein in costs" in order to maintain (or grow) their profit margins. Insurers have been decreasing payments to providers while increasing charges to those they insure for a long time. Obamacare is only the tip of the iceberg of making medical care accessible and affordable[INVALID]insurance industry reform and regulation is also critical.

Looks like some high quality physicians will draw the higher income patients. Ones that can afford out of network fees. That would be different
