John Adler: Why are all doctors paid the same for a given Relative Value Units?

Quoting John Adler, CEO and the Founder of ZAP Surgical on Twitter:

“Doctors make a lot more money than nearly all other professions. How is that a surprise? But with such a broad range of physician abilities, why are all doctors paid the same for a given (Relative Value Units) RVU? Nowhere else in our society is that true. I don’t have an answer, but it reenforces the commonsense observation that all of physician compensation is far removed from market forces which might lower and raise salaries. Speaking for myself, I would be quite willing to pay 2, 3, 10X more than the prevailing reimbursement for many critical physician services to access a better doctor, and so would the authors of the WP article if they were being honest!”
