To the Editor.—The study reported by Dr Borowsky and colleagues1 provides a timely and valuable window into the dynamics of physician-plan relationships. The dramatic difference between the plan ratings by staff model–employed physicians and those by network model–contracted physicians deserves more than the authors' brief comment on the "possibility that physicians employed by a staff model HMO may be inclined to rate it highly as compared with network model plans."
