More gutting of Medicare Advantage doctor networks. #obamacare

    I fail to see why there should be the problem described in this title (“Doctors cut from Medicare Advantage networks struggle with what to tell patients“): Thousands of primary-care doctors and specialists across the country have been terminated from privately run Medicare Advantage plans, sparking a battle between doctors who say patient care is being threatened and insurers that insist they have to reduce costs | Read More »

    Gun Control coming to America

    Dear Joe Biden; Not coming for our guns? The ‘Black Helicopter people’ are just paranoid? Nothing to see here – just some “reasonable” gun control coming down from on high? We shouldn’t worry about the Obama Administration “swooping down” on us? Let me tell you something, Mr. Vice President: You’ll never be President. You’ll never be more than a joke on America, because that’s what | Read More »

    What if the tables were turned?

    Yesterday, members of the Afghanistan Taliban murdered ten Christian doctors in cold blood, execution-style. These doctors, from several countries and church backgrounds (including my own denomination) had been providing medical services to Afghan villagers. They hiked for more than 10 hours over rugged mountains — unarmed and without security — to bring medical care to isolated Afghan villagers until their humanitarian mission took a tragic | Read More »

    Last Stand by Doctors. Can a Rolling Strike Still Kill Obamacare?

    From the diaries by Erick I hate to ask others to do what I can’t but I think only doctors can still stop this now as well as laythe groundwork for a constitutional challenge. About 3 weeks ago I met with some Richmond area doctors. They are apoplectic, and a few have signed petitions. Some have called their legislators. We have two senators in Virginia | Read More »

    Stop the House From Buying Off Doctors

    “Call your Congressman and tell them to oppose a $210 billion doc fix that isn’t paid for and enables the passage of Obamacare.” It is now the House of Representatives’ turn to further enable Obamacare. Later today, the House will vote on a $210 billion “doc fix” that is not paid for and would dramatically add to the deficit. Similar legislation was blocked in the | Read More »

    Why Trust New Promises from Those Who Broke Old Promises???

    From The Foundry: Congress wants America to believe its new promises to control spending even as it reneges on its old promises and spends more than ever. The “new” promise within health care reform bills is to reduce Medicare spending by hundreds of billions of dollars. Yet simultaneously, Congress is reversing 1997 legislation that claimed it would reduce Medicare spending. The latest example of hypocrisy | Read More »

    Doctors Should be Afraid, very Afraid

    David Rogers of Politico, among all the recent articles on the House health care bill, has identified the key provision in the bill that will most change the world of health care: “Section 1160 of the bill lays out an elaborate implementation scheme that empowers the Obama administration to make major changes — which Congress will have limited power to block — that could lead | Read More »

    Obamacare doctor shortage

    More and more doctors are finally speaking out about the devastating effects of government run healthcare.  Obama has said over and over that we can keep our doctors and insurance under his government healthcare—but that’s not how most doctors feel.  Many say they would quit before having the government restrict their practice.  Finally more doctors are beginning to speak out such as Dr Stanley Goldfarb, | Read More »

    Studies Show Doctors will not participate in Government run health insurance

    Obama has said over and over that the AMA supports his health care reform proposal and if you like your doctors, you can keep them.   But, he failed to mention that most doctors don’t belong to the AMA.   So, what do the majority of doctors think about Obama’s government run healthcare proposal?   And, would there be enough doctors to handle the increased patient load in particular for the | Read More »

    Doctors to Throw Pharmaceutical Reps Out of Their Offices

    Interesting.I’m hearing from more and more doctors and from pharmaceutical sales representatives that the sales reps are rapidly becoming persona non grata in the doctors’ offices.Here’s the thing — PhrMA and the American Medical Association both have thrown doctors under the bus. Doctors are supposed to be represented by the AMA, a majority of doctors oppose Obamacare, but the AMA has decided to support Obamacare.PhrMA, | Read More »

    Health Care: Back to Grade School with Compare and Contrast

    I went to my doctor on Wednesday. No, not the local public clinic.  No, not a Doc-in-a-Box.  I went to my General Practitioner (also known as “Family Doctor”).  I found my experience strangely profound.  You see, I’d recently watched Steven Crowder’s video on Canadian Health Care.  If you haven’t seen it and aren’t interested in watching (you should watch it), I’ll tell you how it | Read More »

    Doctoring on the Installment Plan

    How does a successful doctor deal with patients lacking insurance? Dr. John Muney decided to offer a deal. For $79 each month he would service patients with unlimited office visits, some tests, and even in-office surgeries — at all his AMG Medical Group centers. Now, the deal’s not for me. I have insurance through work, and I also have a family, so that $79 would | Read More »
