Doctors Begin To Refuse Obamacare Patients

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

From the "quelle surprise" files, I guess.
A doctor of my acquaintance says he'll practically have to work 'round the clock at his office to see enough patients to be where he was financially in the pre-Obamacare days - and he says patient care will suffer as he can't give them the time they need.

Physicians would be wise to stop taking ALL insurance plans.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

One of mine did just that.  He charges $40 for a 15 minute visit which is pretty much all that 90% of his patients, myself included, need.  I only seem him every six months.  We just go over the blood test results (I have to take cholesterol medication thanks to inheriting naturally high cholesterol) and the usual medical checks that doctors do.  Other patients who have much more extensive problems he sees for a longer period of time and more often.  They can also pay a monthly/yearly fee which allows unlimited office visits so for some that is actually cheaper.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

Article title:
[[ Doctors Begin To Refuse Obamacare Patients ]]

This won't do -- at least in the blue states.

Watch them pass state-level legislation banning discrimination by doctors against ObamaCare patients.

Or -- watch them pass legislation that makes a physician's license (or, his/her right to retain such license) dependent on the requirement that the doctor accept ObamaCare patients.

Absolutely, positively coming...

They can't prevent them from retiring though.  Especially to Costa Rica.

"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)
