Obamacare = Waiting For Health Care

Longer waiting times under Obamacare? Say it ain’t so!!??

Peter Suderman explains the math:  Obamacare is expected to add 16 million Americans to Medicaid.  Since many physicians don’t accept Medicaid patients, they’ll have no choice but to use ERs.  Medicaid patients are already the heaviest users of ERs.  So expect the congestion to increase.

Evidence that this is likely to happen:  Massachusetts, which has similar health care regulations that Obamacare will impose on the country, has seen a 7% increase in wait time.
