This trend has been going on for several years, long before Obama care will kick in. And the doctors were abandoning mostly private insurance companies (30% overhead for all of us). And, note that these doctors are offering basic services with the suggestion that patients obtain high deductable health insurance as well. So this business model, if it survives in the marketplace, will be entirely consistent with Obama care.
Cash???? since when have doctors ever been able to demand cash- they would have to set on their butts 90% of the time if they were working for cash-- as it is they have to fight the insurance companys 90% of the time just to get their discounted fees collected- but what do you care you RWNJs don't get sick - why? because you are Gods chosen people- - getting sick is only for the non RWNJs
Cash only and the free market are the best alternatives to Obamacare and socialized medicine. The proof is at Surgery Center of Oklahoma. They only take cash and post their fees and what they include right on their website. Their staff is all board certified with the highest credentials. A thyroidectomy that normally cost $40,000+ in a conventional hospital only cost $6,500 at Surgery Center of Oklahoma. I used them myself and the service was superb. My family Doctor treats cash pay patients and provides excellent care for the fraction of the cost of insurance.
