"Those are few and will continue to be fewer as time goes on."<quoted text>The only Doctors that refuse Medicare patients are the ones that are self employed. Those are few and will continue to be fewer as time goes on. Most Doctors are now employees of a group practice or hospital. That is the future. Depends on the state of where a Doctor has a practice and the reason for the visit but the average Medicare reimbursement is $50.00. A Doctor seeing 6 per hour would make $300.00/hr or $2400.00 /per day. I really don't know what the problem is. Most people would be fine making $300.00/hr.
That is what socialism creates, less freedom to be yourself and more "conform" to others or else!
All equally miserably!
It is easier for the government to control groups of people like herds than controlling individual free thinking people.
