Docs worried sick over ObamaCare
The New York Post ^ | October 18, 2013 | Carl Campanile

New York doctors are feeling queasy about ObamaCare — and many won’t participate in the new national insurance program because they fear they’ll go broke, The Post has learned.

“ObamaCare is going to send me more patients to see and then cut the payments to provide the care — that’s what’s going to happen,” predicted Donald Moore, a primary-care doctor in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. “I will not accept it.”

Moore claims that President Obama made a big mistake by requiring uninsured residents to obtain medical coverage from for-profit insurers through the ObamaCare health exchanges instead of through public health programs like Medicaid.

Under tremendous pressure to keep costs down and profits up, Moore said he’s concerned that commercial insurers will pay doctors less for patient visits and services than either Medicaid or Medicare.

Many doctors, he argues, won’t be able to cover their costs with such skimpy fees.

Moore scoffed, “Who’s going to sustain the losses? The insurance companies? It’s basically going to be a race to the bottom.”(continued)

"It’s basically going to be a race to the bottom.”"

The Death Panels should be able to fix that.

You will no longer attract the brightest minds to the profession anymore, either. I certainly don’t want the 115 IQ types diagnosing me.

Careful with that, Doc. The Marxist-in-Chief might decide that all doctors should just work directly for the government.

And I’m sure this Obamacare plan has rates doctors and hospitals must follow.

My sister graduated Pre med from Stanford with honors and went into another field. She is brilliant and caring but was unwilling to enter slavery.

Those who think that signing up for ObammyCare is tough, wait until they try to make an appointment to see a doctor when the SEIU thugs decide to go on strike. The Feds and their union zombies are running your healthcare now. Good luck!

As if docs aren’t already going through hell with liability insurance now they got to deal with this BS. They got John Edwards on one side and communism on the other. I was talking to a obstetrician last year, $300,000 a year liability insurance he was paying. Is that freakin’ nuts or what?

Thanks Susan Collins for getting Obamacare out of committee.

Thanks "Chief" Justice Roberts for pulling something out of your @ss and turning this unconstitutional POS into a "tax."

Thanks Republican establishment for ganging up Cruz and Lee and not fighting to defund Obamacare.

Thanks 52% of dumbass, LIV voters who took the time away from playing Halo and munching on Cheetos to vote for this fraud again in 2012.

The buffoons in Congress get to keep their “Cadillac of healthcare plans”. The unwashed masses get ObamaCare. The Edsel of health insurance plans.

Heh, you think that there will be Doctors? Who are you kidding, who would want to be a Doctor and who would want to even continue in medicine under these conditions.. We are doomed to third world medicine in 10 years! Count on it!

Heaven can not even help this catastrophe! Don’t forget to thank the Democrats for this...

Every doctor should say FUBO. I’ll treat the immediate ones but that the last ones. Then let’s see what Bath House Barry does.

What’s going to happen is what just happened to my wife’s doctor. She just resigned from her medical group, is opening a private practice, and isn’t taking insurance.
