As I note, each year since 2002, Congress has passed temporary “doc-fix” legislation to cover billions of dollars of shortfalls in Medicare payments. This system is deeply flawed. The new provisions are part of a bill that tries to transform this broken doctor payment system.
Imagine if a provision in ObamaCare allowed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to dictate directly to doctors which services they could and could not provide their patients—what individual tests they could conduct, which treatments they could offer, and medicines they could prescribe.
If you like your medicines, you may not be able to keep them under Obamacare. The President famously promised that you could keep your health plan and doctor. For many people, both of those pledges are turning out not to be true.
Many of the millions of people being dumped from their private health plans by the Obamacare law will be still be uninsured come January. But there’s still time to help these victims of the “reform.”
There is a growing cause for alarm as evidence of corner-cutting mounts-particularly among Indian generics manufacturers-and the products that are actually sold on the market don't maintain the same quality standards as those that received approval.
