You know how the Mainstream Media keep going on and on with the constant reminders that “coverage doesn’t equal care?”
I’m kidding, of course — you have to go to bloggers like yours truly for anything which might remind people of how much ♡bamaCare!!! sucks, and so here’s another one:
If you’re a newly enrolled Medicaid patient, finding a doctor is increasingly challenging. A new study examining government data which catalogues how many health care providers accept Medicaid patients, shows that access to providers is a real problem.
HealthPocket found that in 2015 only 34% of the healthcare providers examined were listed as accepting Medicaid insurance. This represents a 21% decrease from the listings of Medicaid acceptance found in the 2013 data for the same categories of healthcare providers.
This news comes as we also learn that Medicaid and CHIP now cover a whopping 1-5 Americans. Because of Medicaid expansion under ObamaCare, millions previously ineligible due to lack of disability or higher income levels have been added to the welfare rolls.
Keep in mind that the majority of the newly “insured” are actually on the expanded Medicaid dole, meaning that ♡bamaCare!!! screwed up the entire private insurance system mostly for the sake of an expensive and wasteful welfare program which two-thirds of doctors won’t even accept as payment.
It’s fair to say that the only accurate word in “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” is “Act.”
