    should pay Medicaid rates, and not a cent more -- if doctors won't accept said rates, the government should pass a law forcing -- as a condition of licensure -- doctors to accept all Medicaid and Medicare patients.

    •  Is it really greedy not to want to lose money (0+ / 0-)

      with each patient?  Because Medicaid doesn't even pay enough to cover the costs of the treatment in most cases.  If you were to pass such a law then you should expect most doctors to go bankrupt.  Simply put, either a doctor's income has to be greater than (or at least equal to) his or her expenses or that doctor won't be in business for very long.
