Show: Injured On The Job

Episode: IOTJ010 - California Doctors Speak Out About Senate Bill 899. An Insight To The Kaiser HMO.

Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

SB899 has made it nearly impossible for physicians to properly treat their patients. Instead of trying to apply ACOEM guidelines to workers injuries, the state is trying to apply workers injuries to the ACOEM guidelines. It just plain doesn't work! Physicians are leaving the state or are refusing to treat occupationally injured workers. We speak with our guest Dr. Vatche Cabayan, a Pinole orthopedic surgeon about the difficulties that physicians face post SB899.

Dina Padilla, Kaiser injured worker activist also joins us in this riveting discussion.

Our "Off The Top Of My Head" editorial: The governor vetoes SB1023; a simple bill about Law & Order!

Dr. Charles Phillips, our nationally known Kaiserologist, clues us in as to how the Kaiser Permanante Medical Group really works; non-profit or for profit?
