As of August 1965, 54.4 per cent of the 31,551 California physicians in active practice indicated that they receive all of their income from fees-for-service, with another 7.9 per cent receiving at least some of their income in this manner. A total of 8,025 M.D.'s, or 25.4 per cent, are on full-time salaries with no other source of professional income, and the remaining 12.2 per cent are members of group practices, whether on an income sharing or a salaried basis. Almost two-thirds of California physicians (66.6 per cent) consider themselves to be primarily self-employed
