Many people, just as they become eligible for Medicare, discover that the insurance rug has been pulled out from under them because some doctors are no longer accepting Medicare. This is because either they have opted out of the insurance system or they are not accepting new patients with Medicare coverage. The doctors cite low reimbursement rates and paperwork being too much of a hassle.
