I have never heard of the concept and would need more details but the idea behind it sounds dicey to me. Even if you succeed in whittling down your fees to levels comparable to what commercial carriers pay the exposure remains way higher than most mere mortals can handle out of savings. The only scenario I can imagine where it makes some vague sense is to discount the patient amount in a high deductible plan.
Let us know if you find something more about this. Sounds odd.
