Review Date: October 27, 2008

This is an excellent book edited by Dr. David E. Marcinko; MBA, CMP(tm) to assist health care administrators, physicians and their advisors with the complex issues of insurance and risk management. It is a multi authored book that contains detail information and comprehensive views on a broad range of strategies.

The fifteen chapters cover a broad range of topics, from insuring physicians, their property and practice to covering such complex topics as medical records and health care compliance. Furthermore,
the book addresses other important issues like sexual harassment, workplace violence and risk management in the modern medical practice.

This book is well written and precise. In addition to addressing the topics mentioned above, various authors enlighten us abut medical malpractice and tort reforms issues and promotes the so-called "Capitation Liability Theory." The innovative CLT approach suggests that fixed rate reimbursement systems reduce the incidence of malpractice liability.

Assisting medical professionals in these tumultuous times, advisors need to sharpen their skills on the unique items affecting physician clients. The book is comprehensive and informative and an excellent source of information that provided me a better understanding and perspective on insurance and risk management - not only from the perspective
of a Certified Financial Planner®, but also how it correlates to most physician's unique situations.

Format: Paperback
Physicians are all too familiar with the risks and liabilities inherent in the clinical practice of medicine. An exploding scientific literature, increasing sub-specialization, and a public awareness of "quality healthcare" have challenged conventional practice. Some of our colleagues have a very personal understanding of issues like illness, divorce and disability that accompany these professional challenges. Physician executives perceive even greater threats arising not only from the innumerable personal and professional issues of a singular practice, but also the complexities associated with operating a healthcare organization including personnel agreements, conflict mediation, and asset protection.

Understanding the risks associated with these very divergent areas and providing useful information to protect the physician from liability are the primary aims of Dr. David Marcinko's latest book, Insurance and Risk Management Strategies For Physicians and Advisors.

This book is an excellent primer for physicians of all levels and interests providing important personal and professional advice. It is "must reading" for all medical students who need a fundamental understanding of the current healthcare environment and is equally important to the established physician executive looking for a reference on topics like capitation or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

The book begins with a discussion of personal issues for the physician including life, homeowner's and disability insurance as well as the financial and professional risks associated with divorce. Next the physician's practice is considered with clear and concise coverage of issues ranging from documentation to business operations.

Insurance is an important part of all our lives. This is especially true for physicians. I currently have no fewer than 10 separate insurance policies associated with my plastic surgery practice. I understand very little about the policies other than that somebody at some point told me I needed each and every one of them, and each made sense when I bought it. Am I over-insured and thus wasting money? Am I under-insured and thus at risk for a liability disaster? I never really had the means of answering these questions, until now.

Risk Management and Insurance Planning for Physicians and Advisors is an essential textbook because it explains both to physicians and insurance professionals the background, theory, and practicalities of medical risk management and insurance planning. The insurance haze is lifted by-dual degreed editor, and Certified Medical Planner© Dr. David Edward Marcinko, and his team of contributing authors.

Doctors, like most people, tend to experience losses more intensely than gains, and evaluate risks in isolation. So it's no surprise that goaded physicians might prefer vehicles like the guaranteed minimum death benefit of variable annuities, or the assurance that comes with disability or long term care insurance, or traditional cash value life insurance policies, despite their decidedly higher costs and commissions. Similarly, physicians may enter denial mode and eschew the potential business impact of HIPAA and Balanced Budget Act risks; self referral risks; OSHA, DEA, EPA, OCR, P&C or managed care risks; managed care contract capitulation risks; employee, expert witness, peer review and on-call risks; and even educational debt load risks, among so many others.
