6.1 FINANCING PHYSICIAN SERVICES: REVENUES

Whereas most of the labor force is employed and paid a salary by a large organization many physicians are independent entrepreneurs or partners running what are in effect small busi-nesses.’

The income of physicians in solo or group private practices mostly comes from fee-for-service payments a specified amount paid for each visit or procedure although an increasing amount is coming from complex negotiated third-party contracts.

In the 1930s physicians were essentially free to charge whatever they decided was appropriate but they often collected much less than what they charged. Today 89 percent of physician revenues come from third-party payments3 and most fees are subject to some form of external review’or control (see box “Types of Physician Payment”).
