4 out of 5 CA Voters Demand Health Insurer "Code of Conduct"
Date:7/2/2009

ility to challenge decisions of insurance companies and increased price transparency (86% more likely to support).
  • 88% of those polled are more likely to support a code of conduct if it would put a set of guiding principles in place by which insurance companies could be held accountable for their actions.
  • 84% percent are more likely to support a code of conduct if it would require insurance companies to disclose incentives to doctors. Almost all voters (92%) believe that patients have the right to know if their doctor is getting financial incentives, and 73% believe health insurance companies should not be allowed to offer incentives to doctors based on treatment factors.

  • The survey was conducted by EMC Research of Oakland, CA from May 7-14, 2009 and has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent. (Please see survey memo attached)

    The AMA code currently being drafted will set forth clear and concise principles addressing both medical policies and payment issues, as well as create a mechanism to monitor compliance by managed care companies.

    A Code of Conduct would ensure patients are always put before profits. It would create clinical autonomy, allowing physicians to make decisions based on patient needs without artificial barriers; transparency; the disclosing of information regarding health plan benefits and policies that will help facilitate patient decisions; corporate integrity and patient safety and wellness.
