Physicians are confronted with the possibility of drastic changes in methods of medical practice if Congress enacts certain legislation that to some is a measure for health insurance and to others represents an attempt to socialize medicine. Such legislation has been proposed because a sizable segment of the population of this country cannot enjoy the full benefits of medical care of the high caliber available today in only the relatively few teaching centers. The reasons usually given for the maldistribution of medical care are those related to social and economic factors. The cures proposed are likewise chiefly social and economic.
