Hey Doc, accept Obamacare or else...


If you thought that some doctors and hospitals would not be accepting Obamacare Exchange insurance you are now being proven correct as the sign above clearly shows!

It also likely came as no great surprise to you that the Democrat mantra of 'If you like your doctor and health insurance you can keep it...Period' was nothing but propaganda-laden lies!

Lies told in the very way that Joseph Goebbels had suggested they be told when he said “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

The question now is will the Obama administration, in conjunction with state medical licensing agencies, try to put in rules that will mandate that doctors and hospitals accept health insurance from the Obamacare Exchange, Medicaid and Medicare?

In other words might they say 'If you want to keep your medical license or ability to admit patients you will take whatever insurance that we tell you to take...Period'

Even if it means that by accepting it you will be operating at break-even or at a loss!

If nothing else is should be clear by now that the Obama administration could care less about the ability for business people and businesses to earn a living.

Also crystal clear should be the fact that there are no rules or laws that cannot be changed, molded or manipulated in order to fit into the box that this President is trying to construct.

Therefore if vendors not accepting the inferior health insurance policies poses a problem to Obamacare, why not assume that these vendors will eventually be strong armed or coerced into taking it against their will.

And if doctors instead opt to quit practicing due to the fact that it is not economically feasible one of two things will happen.

Either there will be an even greater doctor shortage leading to long waits and grossly inferior care or once again doctors will in some way be forced by the federal government to continue being a doctor.

As anecdotal evidence of the fact that doctors are opting out of Obamacare take a look at the statistics from California and use that as a guide to the rest of the country.

From Townhall:

An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state's Obamacare health insurance exchange and won't participate, the head of the state's largest medical association said.

“It doesn't surprise me that there's a high rate of nonparticipation,” said Dr. Richard Thorp, president of the California Medical Association.

Thorp has been a primary care doctor for 38 years in a small town 90 miles north of Sacramento. The CMA represents 38,000 of the roughly 104,000 doctors in California.

“We need some recognition that we’re doing a service to the community. But we can’t do it for free. And we can’t do it at a loss. No other business would do that,” he said.

California offers one of the lowest government reimbursement rates in the country -- 30 percent lower than federal Medicare payments. And reimbursement rates for some procedures are even lower.

In other states, Medicare pays doctors $76 for return-office visits. But in California, Medicare’s reimbursement is $24, according to Dr. Theodore M. Mazer, a San Diego ear, nose and throat doctor.

In other states, doctors receive between $500 to $700 to perform a tonsillectomy. In California, they get $160, Mazer added.

Only in September did insurance companies disclose that their rates would be pegged to California’s Medicaid plan, called Medi-Cal. That's driven many doctors to just say no.
