Uh oh: 7 in 10 Doctors Boycotting California's Obamacare Exchange
An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state's Obamacare health insurance exchange and won't participate, the head of the state's largest medical association said.

“It doesn't surprise me that there's a high rate of nonparticipation,” said Dr. Richard Thorp, president of the California Medical Association.

Thorp has been a primary care doctor for 38 years in a small town 90 miles north of Sacramento. The CMA represents 38,000 of the roughly 104,000 doctors in California.

California offers one of the lowest government reimbursement rates in the country -- 30 percent lower than federal Medicare payments. And reimbursement rates for some procedures are even lower.

Only in September did insurance companies disclose that their rates would be pegged to California’s Medicaid plan, called Medi-Cal. That's driven many doctors to just say no.

Having insurance isn't worth a dip if there isn't a doctor available.

It's estimated that 2 things will crash ObummerCare.

1) Doctors refusing to participate.
2) young people refusing to sign up.

I think states rights are going to start stepping up soon as well. South Carolina already has a bill nullifying ObummerCare in their state. That bill is moving through their legislature as we type and is expected to pass. More states are liable to step up to the plate as they start receiving the bill for Medicaid which us going to be astronomical for all the states. In fact those costs are expected to be so dramatic on the states that many of them will step into default. Especially for the states already on the edge.

If hundreds upon hundreds of doctors across the nation refuse to participate, that is a major blow to ObummerCare.

Millions of young people not signing up will dramatically affect ObummerCare as it was expected that they were going to be the ones to finance ObummerCare. That's kinda foolish as the fines at their highest do not even come close to the cost of ObummerCare premiums and deductibles.

the thing is, I don't think Cali is "Deep Blue". They're driven by a few high population cities. I'll bet if you took them out of the equation, there are a LOT of conservatives in Cali and they have no voice. I feel real bad for those people. Talk about helpless....

The rates went up, the deductables went up, the doctors got screwed and the federal government gets new powers and fines to screw you over with.

This is what happens when you let the federal govt "help" you.

this was never about health insurance, health care or helping people. It's always been about grabbing power over the average man.
If they really wanted to fix healthcare, they would've handled it via HEALTH INSURANCE REFORM and left the actual healthcare side completely out of it.
I CAN NOT WAIT to start hearing the stories of all the free insurance mooches that signed up and drifting in to get health care and realize they have an 8k deductible before the insurance pays one dime. People are really overlooking that part of it.
What good does getting it for free do if you can't afford the actual visit???

A few years ago, Hawaii decided a lot of kids weren't getting healthcare.

So...they are cheered when they passed free healthcare for uninsured kids.

What happened? Parents with healthcare dropped their kids' healthcare and signed them up for the "free" healthcare.

Bingo...all the money was gone in 6 months and they had to abandon that idea.

With Obamacare now on the scene, 62% of all Americans are getting some kind of government assistance.

That number will grow.

They won't be signing up in any significant numbers when they see the deductibles they have to pay out of pocket. Even with subsidies they still have those heavy deductibles to deal with.

Unless they qualify for Medicaid. In that case, they get a free ride.

Doctors vs. Lawyers

I think the doctors are fed up with being pushed around and sued by lawyers. Now they are going to rightfully push back and smash this socialist monstrosity into the ground.
