    to be the same that Medicare pays.  That will probably get many more doctors to accept Medicaid.  

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.

      g to the problem. "providers" including doctors as small businesses, groups of doctors, small private hospitals, and large corporate hospital groups are all for profit entities, and as such they have making money as a goal. That's never going to work out well for me.

        Expose the lies. Fight for the truth. Push progressive politics. Save our planet. Health care is a right, not a privilege.

    •  Is that in all states, or only in states that (0+ / 0-)

      accept the expansion?  My state has indicated refusal of the expansion and I'm awaiting a decision from the state we seem likely to move to, although the noise coming from its government is that acceptance of the expansion is likely, although a formal decision has yet to be made.  Still, nothing is certain until it's done.
