Making Seniors Sick

What did you expect removing $700 Billion from Medicare would do???

ObamaCare is making seniors sick.

Elderly New Yorkers are in a panic after getting notices that insurance companies are booting their doctors from the Medicare Advantage program as a result of the shifting medical landscape under ObamaCare.

That leaves patients with unenviable choices: keep the same insurance plan and find another doctor, pay out of pocket or look for another plan where their physician is a member.

New York State Medical Society President Sam Unterricht is demanding a congressional probe after learning that one health carrier alone, UnitedHealthcare, is terminating contracts with up to 2,100 doctors serving 8,000 Medicare Advantage patients in the New York metro region.

The are 2.6 million elderly New Yorkers who receive Medicare, the public heath-insurance program for the elderly.

    I had to stop seeing my doctor for more reasons than one…
    I don’t know about your city/town or state, but we have had a few doctors within 2 miles to 30 miles who won’t take Medicare anymore BUT! They will see you at $30 a visit and that’s it.
    There IS a 30 day wait to see a doctor with this program. The doctors are happy; and the patients, for the most part, are happy.

    Dodged that bullet.
    There is a doctor in the family (sister-in-law’s brother) who immediately sold his real estate, business and moved his practice to Brazil within 30 days after ObamaCare was voted on.
    Why Brazil? I have no clue.
