Fight Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Keep Dr. McGee in New Jersey!

Dear Patients, Colleagues, and Friends,

I am writing to let you know that I may be forced to close my Medical Practice in the next few weeks.

In the past 25 years, I have seen many changes to the practice of Medicine. Some have been improvements, but the majority have been intrusions into the Doctor-Patient relationship by the government (federal and local), insurance companies, mail order pharmacies, HMO’S: which have all set up rules and regulations that strong arm physicians to practice with restrictions/road blocks on how a patient should be treated.

My practice is currently under attack by Horizon Blue Cross of New Jersey.

I am at the point where I must seriously consider moving out of New Jersey.

Blue Cross has refused to fulfill its responsibility to you (it’s insured) by NOT paying claims that I have submitted to them on your behalf.

In the past six months, Blue Cross has failed to play 90% of the claims submitted on your behalf. Since Blue Cross accounts for over 85% of my practice income, I have already had to close offices and lay off many employees.

I have been engaged in a legal battle with Blue Cross for the past 18 months over this very issue. Horizon wants to practice Medicine without a license and have effectively intruded into my practice and patient care.

Believe me, they have their Bottom Lines, not the patient’s best interest when coming up with these rules and regulation.

A small business, like my Medical Practice, cannot survive without income and after six months, I must seriously consider closing my office in New Jersey. 

I have a crucial hearing in my case against Blue Cross, which will determine whether I can continue to practice Medicine in New Jersey, a week from this Friday on November 20th..

I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT BY JOINING ME AT HUDSON COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT AT 9AM ON NEWARK AVENUE IN JERSEY CITY ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20th TO RENOUNCE THE OUTLANDISH BEHAVIOR OF THIS MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR GOLIATH.

 This will be a peaceful gathering to make a statement that this intrusive behavior can’t be tolerated in the Doctor/Patient relationship.

 Please join me at this peaceful protest on November 20th at 9:00 AM

If you cannot join me, please show your support by signing this petition

I will arrange transportation to the protest for you, if needed.

I need your support to allow me the privilege of continuing to be your Doctor.

Sincerely, 

John R. McGee, M.D.
