REPORT: 3/4 OF REID PHYSICIANS TAKE PAYMENT FROM PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES

(Richmond, IN)--A new report from ProPublica shows that almost ¾ of physicians in the Reid Health system take direct payments from pharmaceutical companies.  And, while that may sound out of the ordinary, it’s right on the national average.  Almost seven percent of Reid physicians accept at least $5000 each year.  72% of local physicians accept at least some money.
