A Forum Post asked about 40% of American physicians closing their practices as Obamacare comes to fruition in 2010. This information originated from News and Analysis. However, I saw the beginnings of adjustment back in 1990 and 2010’s senior citizens have likely seen related changes before that.

In Central Ohio dozens, quickly becoming hundreds, of physicians have 1) already closed their practices before their retirement ages or 2) refused to see and eliminated from their practices entirely:

  1. All Medicare and Medicaid patients
  2. All patients without health and or major medical insurance other than in No. 1 above. This includes “self pay” patients that can afford to pay 100% costs out of pocket.

Top physicians, surgeons, nurses and other medical professionals in Columbus volunteer at a series of free health clinics any one of 4 nights per week and some weekend afternoons. These clinics are seeing longer and longer lines of the waiting ill. See what might happen next.
