Doctors, Patients To Feel
Pinch Of Obamacare
On Sept. 23, I attended a Federation-
sponsored panel discussion of
Obamacare for health care profes-
sionals and employees. The informa-
tion provided was quite astounding.
The moderator, an academic using
specious statistics, said Michigan has
plenty of doctors to handle the great
increase in demand for health servic-
es. However, only four years ago, the
Michigan Department of Community
Health issued a press release titled,
"Michigan Faces Serious Shortage of
Physicians:' finding that "Michigan
could face a shortage of 426-4,445
physicians (1-12 percent) by the year
2020."
Later, panelist U.S. Rep. Sander
Levin had the chutzpah (1) to claim
Obamacare will simplify the health

care system, although the complex
2,700-page law (supplemented, so far,
by more than 13,000 pages of detailed
regulations) will require dozens of
new agencies, commissions, panels
and programs, staffed by thousands
of new federal bureaucrats, and (2) to
"explain" why Obamacare should not
apply to congressmen and their staffs.
Other panelists cited how the law
reduces payments to physicians by
25 percent and that it will be more
important to doctors that they get the
billing code right than they get cor-
rect patient diagnosis.
How will this affect the career
choices of our best and brightest stu-
dents? More importantly, how will all
this affect the health of you, me and
our families?
