I am going to make one, and only one, attempt at this. If I mis-state it in my attempts at clarity, Tax or pg1067 are welcome to correct me.
YES. Once they are entered as evidence in some form of litigation, a doctor's gross income and billing records AT THAT TIME become public record.
UNTIL they are entered as evidence in some form of litigation, they are not. Not only are they not inherently public record, but privacy laws (see earlier reference to HIPAA) do not allow the billing records, at least, to be released to anyone without the patient's express written permission UNLESS they are determined to be evidence in some form of litigation and are entered into the court records as such.
Who would be so stupid to think that only an admission could prove something. Or that a person can be forced to admit something. The majority of convictions and verdicts do not include an admission of fault, rather a connecting of dots.
I'm not sure if you're aware of this but judges can't force you to say anything. You may pay a price for it but no one can force you. If you were whipped with a rubber hose then perhaps you could get an admission but I don't think that would be very valuable. I'm sure that if I whipped you with a rubber hose I could make you say that you're a troll with a jaundiced viewpoint and understand that experience doesn't equal expertise but such an admission would, likewise, be useless despite what we all know.
