I have one doctor that takes no insurance at all. More might go that route in 2015.
Anyway, with her nurse there I asked her if she'd lost any patients yet due to Obamacare.
She became very angry and look at her nurse Mrs. Jesus and asked how many phone calls so far. It was up to 48 could not see her because she was not part of their Provider Plan and 63 that lost their coverage and could not afford to buy a plan through the ACA.
Dr. Scott and her husband had instructed their staff in the billing section to work with their patients that still needed to see them and take any payment that they could work out.
She told us also that they have spoken with the other Doctors in the complex and they are also working with their patients that will require care that you just can not ignore or hand off to the E R.
Like she said, you can't blame people for believing all the LIES, People want to Believe.
Then she looked me and my wife in the eye's and said, They should have never allowed this to become a Law, People will Die.

I hope you're right. All I wish for this thing is that it's at least temporary. Why does the government think all this has to happen before a single-payer system gets put into place, though?
edit on 2-1-2014 by EllaMarina because: (no reason given)
Because they couldnt sell the single payer system the first time(because in my opinion- it was too extreme at the time).. but now- it doesnt look as extreme.
Maybe thats why? I dunno- just a guess.
Question: Other then this unsubstantiated rumor, do we have ANY CONFIRMED sources that till will actually take place, or is this more doom porn?
Trust me, I hate this admin, but rumors and things like that don't need to be spread to worry people ALREADY worried about their healthcare
Paperwork problems almost delayed suburban Chicago resident Sheri Zajcew’s scheduled surgery Thursday, but Dr. John Venetos decided to operate without a routine go-ahead from the insurance company. That was after Venetos’ office manager spent two hours on hold with the insurer Thursday, trying to get an answer about whether the patient needed prior authorization for the surgery. The office manager finally gave up.
Hospital staff in Northern Virginia are turning away sick people on a frigid Thursday morning because they can't determine whether their Obamacare insurance plans are in effect.
Patients in a close-in DC suburb who think they've signed up for new insurance plans are struggling to show their December enrollments are in force, and health care administrators aren't taking their word for it.
In place of quick service and painless billing, these Virginians are now facing the threat of sticker-shock that comes with bills they can't afford.
'They had no idea if my insurance was active or not!' a coughing Maria Galvez told MailOnline outside the Inova Healthplex facility in the town of Springfield.
She was leaving the building without getting a needed chest x-ray.
'The people in there told me that since I didn't have an insurance card, I would be billed for the whole cost of the x-ray,' Galvez said, her young daughter in tow. 'It's not fair – you know, I signed up last week like I was supposed to.'
The x-ray's cost, she was told, would likely be more than $500.
