HHS Puts Doctor Snoop Plan on the Back-Burner

On Monday we talked about the HHS plan to employ “mystery shoppers” to pose as patients looking for primary care doctors to help determine which doctors turn away patients with government health plans that pay lower reimbursement rates. Somehow this was supposed to help solve a doctor shortage, because in DC, every day is “opposite day.”

The plan has been put into hibernation. Why? Pretty much because too many people were paying attention:

The Obama administration will not move forward on a controversial proposal to have “secret shoppers” pose as patients to investigate how difficult it is for patients to receive primary care.

“On April 28th, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services submitted a notice to the Federal Register regarding a proposed study that would examine access to primary care,” an HHS spokesman said in a statement. “After reviewing feedback received during the public comment period, we have determined that now is not the time to move forward with this research project. Instead, we will pursue other initiatives that build on our efforts to increase access to health care providers nationwide.”

It’ll be back before long.

And the water keeps searching for the cracks…
