N.C. Physicians Fight For-Profit Takeovers

A group of North Carolina physicians last month formed an organization they say will fight to reclaim control of care delivery from for-profit managed care companies.

The group's news conference announcing formation of the North Carolina Ad Hoc Committee to Defend Health Care was timed to coincide with the Journal of the American Medical Association's publication of a call to action by Massachusetts physicians who have formed a similar group.

The North Carolina group, which says it is acting in the interests of patients and health care professionals, calls on the state to place a moratorium on for-profit takeovers of hospitals, insurance plans, HMOs, physician practices and other health care entities.
