The study should also assess the validity of MPNs, criteria for admission to MPNs, and reasons for removing physicians from MPN panels. The data should include not only defense rationale for removal but also the provider's perspective.

Initial treatment isn't an issue. There's sufficient number of mills like US Healthworks. However, there isn't enough specialties available and quality of care is suffering because of no continuity of care and patients get sent to random doctors without any communication between PTP and consultants. Also, when the patient has been treating on a lien for 2 years and, then, the carrier is yanking from PTP. Also, doctor's medical judgement is impaired, when adjuster is pressuring certain pathway of medical care. MPN provides only one service, carrier control of medical care.
