Any reasonable person could have predicted this when analyzing the Affordable Care Act as written. Premiums rise, payments to physicians go down, and those who want to fix this law believe that increased subsidies to insurance companies will help. It is truly time to scrap ObamaCare and start over. Minimizing the federal role would be a great place to start , Alieta Eck, MD For Real Health Care Reform
Government control of healthcare is reducing access
by Dr. Deane Waldman and Jennifer Minjarez | Aug 29, 2017, 12:01 AM
The Affordable Care Act has made health insurance even more unaffordable than before Obamacare was enacted. Many insurers have lost hundreds of millions of dollars selling Obamacare insurance and have exited the market. The remaining insurance sellers are charging prices many cannot afford and are planning to raise rates an average of 19 percent.
To make the situation worse, payment schedules to doctors continue to go down, making care even less accessible.
