70% Of Calfornia’s Doctors Expected To Boycott Obamacare … But I Thought Obama Promised You Could Keep Your Doctor?


I guess MSNBC would consider 70% of doctors racists …

From The Washington Times, 70% of doctors in California expected to boycott Obamacare. The dirty little secret is just because you are enrolled in a healthcare plan, does not mean you have access to doctors and hospitals of your choice. Physicians have to belong to the network and accept what looks like Medicaid reimbursements. So much for that Obama promise, that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, PERIOD!


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.

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.

“Some physicians have been put in the network and they were included basically without their permission,” Lisa Folberg said. She is a CMA’s vice president of medical and regulatory Policy.

“They may be listed as actually participating, but not of their own volition,”

“This is a dirty little secret that is not really talked about as they promote Covered California,” Waters said. He called the exchange’s doctors list a “shell game” because “the vast majority” of his doctors are not participating.

But if you want to pay more, you can keep your doctor … so says Obamacare architect. So let’s understand this, Obama just created a two tier insurance plan, one for the rich and one for the peasants?

      This is just another reason that Nancy Pelosi made her famous comment about passing it before reading it.

      The states need to begin the recall process for all Democrats that voted this legislation. If they do not have a recall process in their state constitution, then they need to repair this oversight.

      It is pure socialism designed to destroy the health marketplace. Professor Emanual needs to be tared and feathered and hung on a lamp post.

      If MSNBC doesn’t consider you a racist for going against Obama, Oprah does.

      Racist is nothing but a word the democrats and liberals use as an excuse to commit crimes and garner pity for the minorities who are dependent on the democrat plantation. they just aren’t smart enough to realize that the democrats are still practicing the same slavery that they created .
