Texas Hopeful, 2 years out of school, Chance me
Hi guys, Thank you in advance for any advice! I am a Texas resident, attended college from 2012-2016 and graduated with a humanities major and Biology minor. I grew up very poor, and attended college after getting a full scholarship. While I was in undergrad I was still very limited and had to take care of my mother (uninsured but had medical conditions) which plays a big part in my motivations to become a physician. After graduating college I worked for a year as an instructor at a school,... Texas Hopeful, 2 years out of school, Chance me (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Potential job offer - opinions from others
I'm an IMG who worked in socialized medicine country for many years before moving to the US 10 years ago. Finished my US residency less than 2 years ago so I ask the following since I'm not used to negotiating salary/benefits etc. I have been in contact with one of the large hospital systems in my area which is opening several clinics to serve the underserved in the community. I was told that since this position will be serving the poor (uninsured), I would be compensated at MGMA 50th... Potential job offer - opinions from others (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Health insurance
I am currently uninsured. I know we need insurance for medical school, but open enrollment ends December 15th. Am I supposed to be enrolling from now, or does starting school count as a "qualifying life event" which would allow me to enroll outside of the normal window? I'm super confused about this (Source: Student Doctor Network)

How bad am I being taken advantage of
Hello all, recent new grad working as a 1099. Due to family issues and wife preference I am in a high cost of living area. The group I work for says it's democratic and everyone is paid equally. My hourly is 160/hr. And I'm seeing like 3/hr albeit a lot are nonsense pts and acuity is lower. I don't know how badly I am being taken advantage of. The patient population is very poor, literally the 80% medi-cal and or no insurance. This is the reason I am given why our reimbursement rate is...

Would you still want to become a physician if the government passed "Medicare for all?"
Roughly 37% of the country is on some type of government health insurance plan (Medicare/Medicaid/CHIP/VA/etc). Medicaid pays for about 40% of all births. The rest are either uninsured, on Obamacare or have insurance through employment. Do you think it would be with it to go through medical school & residency if we were under a Medicare for all system?

why would anyone with a brain go into Primary Care?
So, i have been contemplating Family practice or primary care for a while, but after shadowing a solo DO today, at her family practice. I don't see how it;s a viable choice, i mean we went over the financial side of the equation, she stated having trouble making ends meet. Thus will be switching to a direct primary care model, under-which no insurance company will be involved!! At the end of the day, i couldn't help it but connect the dot between dying podiatry practice and family care. I... why would anyone with a brain go into Primary Care?

Repealing obamacare bad for hospital employed physicians?
http://www.investors.com/news/trump...es-into-cardiac-arrest-drug-wholesalers-rise/ I was reading this article and it seems like hospitals are gonna lose a ton of money if people lose their health insurance via ACA. For the first time, uninsured rate dropped under 10% and repealing it seems disastrous for hospitals, which will decrease hospital incomes, reflecting hospital employed physician salaries. Thoughts?

Research studies and medical care
I worked at a research center over a summer helping with recruiting patients and coordination. Many of the patients we had recruited were uninsured or under insured and had difficulty accessing healthcare for their conditions. While we made sure that those patients qualified and benefited from the medication in the studies, I would like to mention in my app about how I was glad I was able to get these people some healthcare and medication.
