Government Health Care Being Dropped

August 4, 2009

In a study of 15 metro areas it was found only it was found 55.4% of physicians are currently accepting medicaid patients.

Medicaid is taxpayer funded, government administered and resembles the public option

Physicians are being reimbursed below their costs. If the recipients could get private insurance there would be no problem with dropping patients.

Yes, if recipients could get premium assitance the issue would go away.

Why are we attempting to offer a public option when this program is being dumped by Doctors and is not viable?
