Why physicians oppose the healthcare reform bill

Forbes, May 3, 2010

In this commentary published online by Forbes, Daniel Palestrant examines physicians' reaction to the health reform law. A recently released poll of more than 2,000 physicians indicates that 79% of physicians are less optimistic about medicine since the passage of healthcare reform, Palestrant notes. Fifty-three percent indicate they will consider opting out of insurance plans with passage of the bill. In addition, 66% indicate that they will consider opting out of all government-run programs.
