They are an essential part of the practice as a doctor simply doesn't have the time to manage such things on their own.
Cash-only practices generally charge much less simply because the patient no longer has to share the burden of paying for the billing staff.

Ever read "Atlas Shrugged"? This is exactly what the people who made the economy go did...they vanished. All because of an over-bearing government that was up in their business.
Yes they are. As I pointed out, these new plans all have their own billing regulations and caps on fees for service.It's not like they're dealing with a new insurance company with new regulations.
The Greene County Republican Committee in Virginia got the nation’s attention with a column calling for an “armed revolution” if President Barack Obama is re-elected in November.
I personally know two college graduates in the past year who opted not to go to medical school to pursue a career as a doctor specifically because of Obamacare. That's anecdotal, sure, but that's just in little old The Man's world. I'm sure plenty of others know of and have seen the same thing.
