Obamas former health policy advisers worry that other top health economists, those in hot demand in academia and in the industry, wont be interested in a federal job where the compensation is low, the political controversy high and the ultimate payoff unclear.
The same can be said for doctors in the near future. Who will be want to be a doctor in the future where the pay will be low and the criticism high. With no way to pay off your student loans.
With this advisory panel whose main function is deciding how to reduce cost to the health care system having the ultimate power over a doctors income I dont see many intelligent people wanting to be a doctor.
The “best and brightest” will practice off shore.
I expect to see clinics set up in the Caribbean to cater to high end US patients who have the resources to go beyond Obamacare.
