Also, look for the Baton Rouge Clinic (Perkins Rd.) to become a "VIP Medical Club" (aka cash only) in the very near future.


Looks like I might have to find a new doctor

So how is that a consequence of Obamacare?


My last visit about a month ago he insinuated because of Obamacare he was thinking of retiring. I guess he watched more of FOX news after my visit and decided "frick it, I quit".

See the connection now?

Before my former doc went to a "boutique" practice, he said this was coming. He said that easily 15-20% of docs would retire/leave profession/relocate to other countries [Costa Rica] and probably another 10-15% would go straight cash just as all of these "new" patients come online.

States can be strong armed by penaltys that will cut off whatever federal funding will result in the desired outcome.

You don't think the Feds cans dictate to the states? Look at the drinking age. Look at voting laws. Look at labor laws.

Regulation requiring states running Obamacare exchanges to mandate that condition of medical license is acceptance of insurance/Medicare/Medicaid.



frick. I haven't thought of that.....


I was hoping to see a large backlash of "cash only" practices opening up thus bypassing the insurance companies and the feds to see what a true market would look like and how it would treat patients. My father-in-law retired because he got tired of dealing with the insurance companies. He goes to a "cash only" doctor now for everything. Pays him a flat fee per year I believe.

If you have Obamacare and want to pay cash for treatment at a place that takes Obamacare, you cannot do it.

It is considered fraud.

ETA: Anticipating the "why would you pay cash if you have Obamacare" questions, Dr's Offices are limited in the # of Obamacare patients they are allowed to take on. When they reach that limit, no more. So, if you like a particular Dr and want to go see him and pay cash to do it, you are SOL.

Or hopefully more doctors follow suit, you dump your costly health insurance and pay out of pocket and save a ton of money.
Drop your insurance, but what about the individual mandate? You can't just drop your insurance without paying taxes for not having insurance. Wasn't universal health insurance the goal of Obamacare?

If they aren't, I'm guessing bunky won't pay.
