Abstract
OBJECTIVES: To measure Korean physicians' job satisfaction and to examine the relationship between trust in Health Insurance Review Agency (HIRA) and job satisfaction. METHODS: Stratified sampling was used. The sample was representative of Korean office-based physicians; 1593 office-based physicians in Korea were surveyed by mail over a 4-week period using a self-administered questionnaire. Multivariate analysis using logistic regression was performed to investigate predictors of physicians' job satisfaction and to examine whether trust in HIRA was related to job satisfaction. RESULTS: Overall, the job satisfaction of physicians was very low. The payment denial rate was not related to job satisfaction. Physicians who trusted HIRA were more likely to be satisfied with their job. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians who trusted in the HIRA were more likely to report satisfaction. These results emphasize that trust in the HIRA is key to physicians' job satisfaction.
