I'd counsel any MCO or physician group facing this issue to step out of the way instantly.

Saving the network from "leakage" isn't worth the unpleasantness of participating in a sexual boundary suit.

Suppose our small-town doctor becomes smitten with a local beau or belle.

Managed care may compound the difficulty, when a limited panel of physicians presents a patient with an "ineligible" doctor as the only covered choice.

You, who are medical directors out there, please consider how you would react to a request for an out-of-network referral based on "personal reasons." The geographic reality doesn't create the ethical bind, but a contractual restriction.

According to the American Psychiatric Association: "Sexual activity with a current or former patient is unethical....

A therapist who gratifies his or her own needs by exploiting a patient's vulnerability destroys the trust essential to treatment." The APA seems to imply that all sexual relationships are inherently exploitative. From the administrative justice standpoint, a "no overlap" rule is simple to administer and superficially unassailable. As a credentials reviewer, I've seen this clause invoked far more often by scorned lovers than by innocent parties.
