In a new analysis of ObamaCare, President Obama’s chief actuary warned that changes to the reimbursement rate for doctors and hospitals and Medicaid expansion may jeopardize access to care for seniors and low-income Medicaid dependents.
Medicare Changes Threaten Access to Care for Seniors:
“Thus, providers for whom Medicare constitutes a substantive portion of their business could find it difficult to remain profitable and, absent legislative intervention, might end their participation in the program (possibly jeopardizing access to care for beneficiaries).” Page 10
Medicaid Changes Threaten Access to Care for Low-Income Americans:
“Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that a significant portion of the increased demand for Medicaid would be difficult to meet, particularly over the first few years.” Page 20
