If you like your doctor...

Remember this:

Ah, good times, good times.

Reason I ask is this:

"The number of physicians who say they’re accepting health insurance plans offered on Obamacare’s federal and state marketplaces has plummeted nearly 20 percentage points"

Now, we've blogged on this for a long, long time, but as we head into Open Enrollment v4.0, it's not enough to make sure your plan is affordable, but that it's actually useable. That is, all those "freebies" (colonoscopies, mammograms, routine physicals)? Well, they're not going to be free if your doc doesn't take your plan. And good luck finding a new provider:

"[O]nly about 57 percent of doctors said they'll be taking new patients insured by the plans next year"

That's less than two-thirds, and may be even worse in some areas.
