Key Findings

Physician Support of Health Reform in General
•    62.7% of physicians feel that health reform is needed but should be implemented in a more targeted, gradual way, as opposed to the sweeping overhaul that is in legislation.
•    28.7% of physicians are in favor of a public option.
•    3.6% of physicians prefer the “status quo” and feel that the U.S. health care system is best “as is.

Health Reform and Primary Care Physicians
•    46.3% of primary care physicians (family medicine and internal medicine) feel that the passing of health reform will either force them out of medicine or make them want to leave medicine.

Health Reform, Public Option, and Practice Revenue/Physician Income
•    41% of physicians feel that income and practice revenue will “decline or worsen dramatically” with a public option.
•    30% feel income will “decline or worsen somewhat” with a public option.
•    9% feel income will “improve somewhat” with a public option, and 0.8% feel income will “improve dramatically” with a public option.
