In the 21 June 2022 article for the Medical Republic, Margaret Faux discusses how doctors are vulnerable to misinterpretation of the Medicare billing system, and incorrect advice from the DOH doesn’t help to clarify Medicare’s complex system of laws.

And many doctors unfortunately still believe that DOH advice is reliable, or is at least the closest thing we have to a central source of truth.” Dr. Margaret Faux
