Virginia Democrat Calling For Forcing Doctors To Accept Medicare And Medicaid Patients


Welcome to Obamaland: This is still America, isn’t it … For Democrats woman have the right to choose for an abortion, but doctors should be forced to accept Medicare and Medicaid, UNREAL!

Virginia Democrats are calling the forcing of all doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid. Unbelievable, but this is what we get these days from a ‘Gestapo-like’ government that believes in forcing people into doing things when it comes to healthcare. Remember when “We the People” thought it was unheard of to think that the Obama regime could force Americans to buy insurance? Currently physicians have the option of accepting Medicare and/or Medicaid patients. Many physicians do not because of the low reimbursement rate, especially with Medicaid. Imagine being paid $12 for an office visit? It is actually for profitable to see a Medicaid patient for free. However, Democrats now want to force doctors to accept government healthcare. What has happened to this country? These people will not be happy until they destroy the healthcare system in this country and force a single payer system upon us.

The Weekly Standard asks, could Obamacare affect Tuesday’s Virginia gubernatorial election and sink poll leading Democrat nominee, McAuliffe?


From The Mason Conservative:

Kathleen Murphy, Democrat running for the House of Delegates against Barbara Comstock, telling a forum in Great Falls that she believes it should law to force doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients.  Forced by government decree, mind you.  A birdie sent me this:

FYI last night at the Great Falls Grange debate, Democrat delegate candidate Kathleen Murphy said that since many doctors are not accepting medicaid and medicare patients, she advocates making it a legal requirement for those people to be accepted.

She did not recognize that the payments are inadequate to cover the doctors’ costs.  She also did not recognize there is a shortage of over 45,000 physicians now and that it is forecast to be 90,000 in a few years.

Democrats appear to want to make physicians slaves of the state, but Democrats don’t admit they would just drive more doctors out of practice into retirement and other occupations.  The Obamacare law and regulations are causing millions of people to lose their health insurance, drop many doctors and hospitals. The HHS internal forecast is 93 million Americans would lose their health insurance due to the Obamacare law and rules about adequacy of insurance. (more)

As discussed at Legal Insurrection, one of the consequences of Obamacare is the millions of individuals going to be enroll in Medicaid. So now there will be an even greater percentage of the healthcare pool where healthcare reimbursements do not cover costs.

The great Obamacare reform is turning into the great thrust of tens of millions of people onto Medicaid.

The problem is, fewer and fewer doctors are willing to take Medicaid patients because the reimbursements are so low.

I have met numerous doctors who tell me they either refuse Medicaid patients or restrict them because the reimbursements do not cover their costs.  They also double and triple book, because so many Medicaid patients who make appointments don’t show up.  As to Medicare the payments currently are bearable, but only because private insurance payments for other patients make up the shortfall.

Increasingly, doctors are abandoning the government payment train wreck, and going all cash or some hybrid.  This all was foreseeable and was foreseen.

      The Socialist dictator has spoken. We want total control of everything related to health care.

      This is just another socialist scheme to take away our freedom. It is time to remove the Democrat/Socialist party and all those holding office as a Democrat. Once they are removed, be careful to never allow them another position in government.

      It won’t be long now.

      Obamee has already destroyed the middle class. More than ever we are dependent on Uncle Sugar for our very livelihoods. Employment is in a permanent death spiral, higher education is now impossible for most of us, now health care is about herding us into universal Medicaid.

      The elites will have paradise. For the rest, Obamamerica.

      It wont’s take a few years – American Medical school LOL

      Foreign doctors with green cards from third world economies, i.e. India, will be boat loaded to America. Obamacare a dream for them. Surely an immigration plan already exists.

      Know that medical school in India is free, per my Indian doctor.

      Spring 2013 – The Cypriot economy us was destroyed in two weeks intentionaly by EU banksters – whom Obama is copying.
