LA Times: State lacks doctors to meet demand of national healthcare law

Post  Outerlimits on Mon Feb 11, 2013 3:10 pm

The Democrats are pushing for nurse practitioners instead of doctors providing some care in California. Study states “too many new patients not enough doctors as a result of Obamacare.”

Gee, where have we heard that before?

"As the state moves to expand healthcare coverage to millions of Californians under President Obama's healthcare law, it faces a major obstacle: There aren't enough doctors to treat a crush of newly insured patients. Doctors say giving non-physicians more authority and autonomy could jeopardize patient safety. It could also drive up costs, because those workers, who have less medical education and training, tend to order more tests and prescribe more antibiotics, they said...About 350 laws altering what health professionals may do have been enacted nationwide in the last two years, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Since Jan. 1, more than 50 additional proposals have been launched in 24 states.",0,1509396.story

Obamacare does not lower the cost of healthcare; it only increases the financial burden on those who actually pay for it.

Gee, where have we heard that before?

The IRS states it would cost a family of 4, $20,000 for a health care plan that they would approve.

I hope all the liberals that supported this bill have to start shelling out that 20k, but I am sure they will blame the right wing for it.

The obvious answer is to lower the standards for doctors.

Back in the day…the formula was pretty simple. Med students were scored on their first six semesters of undergrad, relative to other applicants. A perfect score was 60; applicants were scored on the MCAT score. At that time, there were six individual scores and an average score.
Scores 100-120............ Accepted into the program
80-100........................ Borderline
below 80......................Rejection

So…how many people want their physician to be a C student? Shocked

clown ObamaCare clown has a provision that's just right for California—and we're paying for it...


New doctors will be trained in their native languages.

Very Happy
