reimbursement rates are going to go down the ****ter with obamacare which will kill off all owner operated clinics. It's a fact that medicaid patients cost doctors money to treat. Once they start putting in quotas for these types of patients doctor pay goes way down and hours worked goes way up.
What this means is everything will be big box clinics with government subsidies to stay afloat. There will be horrible queues and even worse care because doctors will be overworked and look at you like a number instead of a patient.
It's no hidden fact that obamacare will kill off private practice. It'll just be another uneven playing field created by the government and you and me will get worse care because of it....it will be like going to walmart to see your doctor.
