HAGERSTOWN -- Dr. Dan McDougal had a strategy for dealing with insurance companies that put doctors through a game of "Mother May I" to get procedures approved. When a company said it wouldn't pay for a CT scan or an MRI unless its staff authorized it first, McDougal, medical director for Antietam Health Services, would call the insurance company's medical director, who usually was in another state, and ask for the spelling of his name and his Maryland medical license number. When the medical director said he didn't have a Maryland license, McDougal threatened to call the state board of licensure and stressed the serious consequences of practicing medicine without a license.
