'severe cuts in reimbursement under Obamacare'<quoted text>
Physicians are already dropping Medicare patients. This is the problem according to Adam Frederic Dorin, M.D., MBA:
Many physicians, feeling isolated and in fear of losing their practices due to severe cuts in reimbursement under Obamacare, are looking for remedies under the law to simply not participate, disenroll, or limit their involvement with the Medicare program. Many would like to continue to see patients by making private arrangements and/or by simply giving free care, but on their terms without unwieldy and unnecessary government regulations imposed by such participation.
Where are the millions going to go if more physicians do the same?
Will the government now mandate physicians take these patients or work for free - which has been reported as a distinct possibility?
That sounds like cutting spending to me, don't you want to cut spending big gov't Carol?
Wife goes to doctor for a visit, procedure, whatever, doctor fee $1,500, Insurance co. pays $800 which the doctor gladly accepts as payment in full.
You tell me the difference?
