ETH-003: Physicians Providing Insurers with Misleading Information

Physicians Providing Insurers with Misleading Information: The Wisconsin Medical Society opposes physicians providing health insurers with misleading information, even if the physician’s intentions are to support the patient. The Society will advocate for policies and laws that enable physicians to provide the care that is medically necessary for their patients, and when there is a conflict, the Society will act as a resource for physicians who need information on how to aggressively and ethically advocate for their patients.
