New Health Care Insurance & Your Doctor

I was talking with a client of mine the other day and he shared with me something pretty interesting about the medical profession. He told me that if I had a great doctor I should chain him to my garage now and he is likely right.

Regardless of the opinion you have on the new health care act no one seems to have given a lot of thought as to who will provide care for all of the new individuals that will be covered by this health care act (let alone how this will really be paid for).

There was a great article in the Parade Magazine today about a small town country doctor (what a great individual this must be). In the same article a projection is cited by the American Medical Colleges, that the U.S. will be short 45,000 primary doctors by 2020.

I now better understand my client’s comment. I have a great doctor but he is in a lot better shape than I am. I guess I better get back to exercising and buy some chain……
