While I’ve had a good impression of Dr. Robert Markison’s experience as a hand surgeon, at least through two visits to his office, I’m sorry to say my overall impression has been reduced to poor.
Dr. Markison is listed as a provider for Anthem Blue Cross, which is the whole reason I chose that of the two plans offered through MediCal (I’m currently unemployed and was forced in MediCal by Covered California).
However, what his office refused to admit even after much go around (claiming against all statements and evidence to the contrary that Anthem did not have them on their provider list), is that Dr. Markison won’t accept the lower Anthem MediCal reimbursement rate.
Hard not to feel like that’s a bit greedy. It’s certainly dishonest.
