Although the Healthcare reform is being approved and put into effect with the best intentions of providing health care to all US citizens, there are some doctors that are finding it will hurt them in the long run.
I recently saw a Medicaid patient in the office. She was single, unemployed and had four children. Her office co-pay was $3.
She received medical services and went out to her car to get her wallet and never returned.
I can’t wait for 30 million more patients to enroll in Medicaid.
Thank you, President Obama.
According to Vitals.com, Dr. Steven Kagan, is a Vascular Surgeon specializing in Glandular and Pancreatic Cancer. He finished a top ranking University of Massachusetts Medical School and one of his residencies was completed Harvard University School of Medicine. He is not to be mistaken by Dr. Steven Kagen, Member of the U.S. House of Representatives in Wisconsin.
On the opposing side, doctors responding to the “Doctor’s delight” letter:
Like many readers, I’m sure, I was saddened to read the April 23 letter “A doctor’s delight” about how a single, unemployed mother of four children left the letter-writer’s office without paying her $3 co-pay for medical services.
I encourage other readers who support national health care coverage for all human beings to support physicians like this man when they take a hit by a person who was so poor she didn’t even have the $3 co-pay.
