    Currently doctors don't accept all insurances, and damn few accept medicare/caid.

    So if they can refuse to accept it, what becomes of obamacare?

    No doctors won't have to accept the obamatax. Many doctors have already said they will quit. Some will go to direct pay or concierge service. What will happen to obamatax is that there will be a severe shortage of doctors with a waiting time of months before you get to see one. According to the proponents of obamatax, the shortage of doctors will be dealt with by the use of physician assistants and nurse practioners having expanded responsibilities.

    And I for you.

    TT hit the nail on the head. Few accept government insurance.

    Few will even take a L@I claim. Since the plan cuts payments to doctors. You look even more foolish.

    Intentional??

    From what I understand, the exchanges will include the biggest insurers (BC/BS; Aetna, etc.) and of course the doctors will accept those.

    However, I suspect it will create an oligopoly because smaller non-profits will no longer be able to compete given the amount of regulations. These large companies have been working on this long before the Supreme Court ruling.

    The oligopoly will be able control the prices with the government's blessing (and cash).

    Eventually the public will have enough, and a single payer system will be created. I honestly believe that's been the plan all along, and the exchanges were just a way to pay off Big Insurance for now.

    The best doctors will be providers to the rich who can afford to pay. The poorly performing doctors will take obamatax.

    spare us the semantics as it depends on the area. Many will not accept new patients.

    Mr know it all.
