Ah, Obamacare.....it's truly a Shop of Horrors. In only two years, even before much of the ENORMOUS and UNACCOUNTABLE bureaucracy it creates has been freed to dictate to us, we've learned that: - The cost of Obamacare has ALREADY doubled. (Trust me - we'll hear this again and again!) - Elements of the law are completely unrealistic and have been terminated (CLASS) plan. This was SO POORLY conceived that even liberals, who are inherently results-ignoring, had to admit it was simply infeasible - MILLIONS will lose their existing coverage, and docs, due to the perverse incentives in the law - The law is (at a BARE MINIMUM) questionably constitutional, despite San Fran Nan's "are you kidding?" arrogant dismissal - Snark
Dr. Jeff English the Docs4Patient Care, Georgia Chapter President and the Director of Clinical Research at the MS Center of Atlanta and I have written this piece to alert patients about the rationing of vital services under ObamaCare and warn that the impacts already being seen are in fact, just the beginning.
 
The future is here.  CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) is notifying doctors about overutilization of services. My partners and I were among those contacted.  Apparently, some of us ordered 40% more radiology tests than our "peers" did last year.  (They did not bother to define “peers.”)
