Docs Just Say No to Obamacare

If you like your doc, they may not like you. 
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.
And you thought the new rates + higher deductibles were your only problem.
Nearly eight in 10 — 77 percent — said they had not been given a fee schedule to show much they’ll get paid if they sign up.
Go ahead and treat the patient, doc. Trust us. You will eventually get paid.
“Any doctor who accepts the exchange is just a bad businessman/woman. Pays terrible,” argued one doctor.
Remember "If you like your plan you can keep it"?
Too bad that was a lie.
