Dr.A

I am a solo practitioner and so also a small business owner and yet I cannot afford health insurance for myself or my staff. I am not reimbursed well for the fine care I deliver and therefore penalized for keeping my patients healthy. Already I see that the monies that the insurance companies say they can save will come from further squeezing providers and quietly reducing benefits to members. Members won't see it until they need care and find they are responsible for the bill.
