Dr. Peter Weiss writes at PJ Media about the effects of Obamacare on doctors. "If you are here for that annual exam, you will not be covered if you want to discuss any new ailment or unstable condition. I cannot bait and switch to another code — that’s illegal.

"Obamacare has a 23% cut in Medicare reimbursement to doctors and hospitals. These lower payments won’t cover the cost of staying in practice to take care of the patient. Private doctors are becoming a thing of the past. By 2014, less than 25% of physicians will be in private medicine. Obama was right in stating you can keep your doctor if you want to — the problem is he or she will rarely be available."
