Letters to the Editor: 'Medicare for all' would put doctors out of business. Does Warren have a plan for them?

To the editor: As a retired physician and a Medicare patient, I am ambivalent about Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren's plan for "Medicare for all."

From a patient's perspective, it's a great deal. The premiums are affordable, most doctors and hospitals accept it, and you don't lose Medicare if you change your job. If you are a doctor, however, and your income depends on Medicare reimbursements, you are likely to go bankrupt.

In every other business, when costs go up, the price of goods and services can be increased to cover the difference. Not so in medicine. Insurance companies, Medicare and Medicaid control how much physicians are reimbursed and rarely raise their compensation to account for increased expenses.

Warren is knowledgeable when it comes to macroeconomics, but she appears not to have looked at the books of medical practices. If she wants the medical establishment to support her plan, how about paying doctors what they deserve?

As intended they are pushing their utopia down our throats to end this nation. Nothing More.

No, Pocahontas does not.

And thankfully the crazy bitch doesn't stand a chance at being elected.

The University of Chicago Medical Center cut the position of "vice president for community and external affairs" after Moochie 0bama moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Though I doubt the savings went back into operating costs.

Just like health insurance workers can find work with "life insurance, car insurance or auto insurance", doctors can find work as dentists, coroners or funeral home operators.

Providers make up for the loss of income from Medicaid and Medicaid with commercial insurance patients. If that goes away, medical practice will become a losing proposition.
