Putting doctors back in charge of health care [Commentary]
It's a fairly simple concept: When ill, you seek effective treatment from your doctor. Despite efforts by some Maryland health insurers to insert themselves into the middle of the physician-patient relationship, lawmakers are poised to make this simple idea — that doctors are the correct people to decide treatment for their patients — a reality for Maryland patients. Important patient protection legislation is working its way through the Maryland General Assembly after clearing key hurdles in both chambers and should soon end up on the governor's desk.
