In a shocking (to the economically illiterate, Democrats, and other fools) development, there exists a relationship between price and supply:
As physician reimbursement rates continue to plummet, many doctors around the country are no longer taking Obamacare patients.
In a new report at NPR, one Connecticut doctor explains that Obamacare plans, many of which use private insurance plans, are paying lower fees to doctors than Medicaid, a sum close to $80.00.
“I cannot accept a plan [in which] potentially commercial-type reimbursement rates were now going to be reimbursed at Medicare rates… You have to maintain a certain mix in private practice between the low reimbursers and the high reimbursers to be able to keep the lights on,” Dr. Doug Gerard told NPR.
In another shocking development, it turns that “coverage” and “care” are not the same things.
I’m doing my best to muster sympathy for ♡bamaCare!!! supporters being hoisted by their own petards, but my best, like their coverage, is coming up short.
