    Docs Resisting ObamaCare

    This could end up making medical care for everyone a total nightmare thanks to Obamacare. Think about it... What is going to happen if half the doctors in the US suddenly vanish?

    New York doctors are treating ObamaCare like the plague, a new survey reveals.

    A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.

    Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers.

    Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.

    Are they moving out of the United States? Changing careers? There's no danger of that . . . they'll accept Obamacare or starve.

    Anyone who becomes a doctor isn't stupid. I'm sure they took into consideration all factors before making such a decision, factors that I don't have the first clue about.

    Is the New York State Medical Society a "Murdoch rag" too Pete? Because they are the ones who conducted the survey.

    Obamacare is about insurers, its not about doctors. Doctors don't control who the insurance companies are. Does the self proclaimed media critic get it yet?

    Actually, no. When they are forced to provide coverage for less than cost they are more likely to starve participating.

    There is a reason why all doctors that accept medicare have a cut off where they stop taking new patients. The reason is that Medicare patients lose them money after the point where their losses make no difference on their tax return. After that point Medicare's abysmal pay out rates start actually eating into their operational budget.

    The same will likely be true for these new price fixing plans in the ACA.
