Your ObamaCare Fail of the Day

January 31st, 2014 - 10:47 am

Bruce Japsen:

Patients are waiting an average of 18 days to schedule an appointment for a doctor, according to a study of appointments for commonly used specialty physicians in 15 major U.S. cities.

The survey by physician staffing and consulting firm Merritt Hawkins comes as a doctor shortage looms as more patients seek medical care under the Affordable Care Act. The health law is bringing millions more Americans health benefits and therefore the ability to pay for a visit to the doctor’s office.

The longest wait to see a doctor was in Boston where the average wait was 45.5 days to schedule an appointment with a family physician, dermatologist, cardiologist, orthopedic surgeon or obstetrician/gynecologist.

I’ll just note that Massachusetts is home to RomneyCare, which served as the model for ♡bamaCare!!!.

When Obama talks about equality, he means the equality to wait for a doctor. In San Francisco, if you pay a membership fee, you don't have to wait.

Re: ♡bamaCare!!!.

Careful there - as Terry Pratchet reminds us, five exclamation points is the sure sign of a disordered mind.
