Court backs WI docs in pay dispute



Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group in Racine, WI violated physicians? contracts in 2008 by retroactively changing doctors? pay halfway through the year, according to a decision filed this month in Racine County Circuit Court. The decision came almost two years after former Wheaton Franciscan-All Saints spine surgeon Branko Prpa, MD, filed a civil suit against All Saints? medical group for the 2008 pay change. Wheaton?s doctors including Prpa began 2008 working under a compensation model where they were paid based mostly on their specialty and prior year net service charges. But Wheaton switched in July 2008 to a compensation model that assigns a dollar amount to every type of office visit or procedure.
