Victim of Obamacare Loses His Doctor
Obama won’t be happy until government controls everything.

It’s a reminder to Jim in Phoenix that we mentioned a couple of days ago that the vast, if not all, of the Obamacare plans do not pay for any doctors or treatments out of network. Let me tell you how this manifests itself. You’re on the operating table. There’s a team there working on you. You got the surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists or the anesthetist, any number of people. If one of those doctors is not in the network, i.e., in the Obamacare system, you could end up being charged by that one specialist an amount of money that you’d be shocked that you would be charged. And a lot of doctors are pulling out of the network because they don’t want anything to do with it.
The New York Post has a story, it’s just the latest one. “Seventy-seven percent of New York state doctors may opt out of Obamacare.” Seventy-seven percent. From the article. “New York doctors are treating Obamacare like the plague, a new survey reveals. A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan. Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers. Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.” Only 23%.
Now, there’s a reason for this, and it’s not because doctors are bad people, and it’s not because doctors are rich and don’t care about you. It’s not for any of the reasons that the left would want you to believe about rich people not caring about the poor. It is they can’t make a living in Obamacare. It’s just that simple. It makes no economic sense to be in Obamacare, as they’ve sized up their situation.
It’s no different from the way you would react if Obama decided to regulate the business you’re in and mandate that you do it under circumstances where you only got paid half of what you were used to being paid. Why would you stick around? To be a good neighbor? To provide health care and treatment for your community? It’s not how markets work. It wasn’t perfect, but I’m telling you, people don’t like what they’re finding that this has become and is becoming.
