Minnesota Medicine, Vol. 5 : January, 1922 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Minnesota Medicine, Vol. 5: January, 1922 The chief advantages claimed for compulsory health insurance are that it provides medical care for those who would otherwise be obliged to do without, while at the same time relieving them from the stigma of dependence upon charity; that it promotes thrift since the bene ficiary must meet this charge regardless of other obligations. As members of the medical profession we are of course interested in knowing What the ef feets might be upon the medical men who are drafted, for _that is what it amounts to, to do this class of work. In Great Britain, before the act: became operative, a so-called doctors' strike occurred, the men declaring they would never accept service under the panel. But when it became evident that some would accept service, large numbers hastened to sign up. Fearing that they would otherwise lose much of the work they already had, since many, or, in some cases, most of their patients, would come under the provisions of the compulsory insur ance act. Some of these men were already do ing contract work for the voluntary insurance societies, of which there were many, and in some cases doing it for less per head per annum than the government offered under the insur ance act.
