Medicare is a government-run health care program. And the Washington Post reported this weekend that doctors from coast to coast are opting out and refusing to participate in the program.
“Top-ranked primary-care doctor Linda Yau is one of three physicians with a District of Columbia internists group who recently announced they no longer will be accepting Medicare patients,” according to the Post. “It’s not easy,” Yau is quoted as saying. “But you realize you either do this or you don’t stay in business.”
Folks, this is what awaits ALL of us, not just the elderly, unless ObamaCare is repealed before it takes firm root.
Meanwhile, a new aspect of ObamaCare kicks in on January 1, when insurance companies will be required to spend between 80-85 percent of insurance premiums on health care benefits, with only 15-20 percent going to overhead, administration and marketing. Causing Nevada News & Views reader Gerald Sills to write, “When I thought about this, I began to wonder if anyone has thought about applying the same idea to government.”
They have now Mr. Sills. Thanks.
