What is a "closed" practice? Can I still see my doctor if his or her practice has been closed?
This is status designation which applies only to HMO subscribers. It indicates that a physician's HMO practice has temporarily reached its maximum number of subscribers. The physician continues treating all of his or her existing patients, however additional HMO subscribers are not accepted until the practice is classified as "open" again.
