One of the wayswill “cover” the uninsured is by herding about 18 million people onto . But the health care “reform” law doesn’t provide enough money to the states to pay for all these new enrollees. So, the states will increasingly have to cut provider payment rates.
This means that most of the “newly covered” patients won’t be able to find doctors and other providers willing to treat them. And there’s another catch. Those “newly covered” people will also have to abandon some of their legal rights.
