America’s Healthcare Challenge Scenario Four: Dr. Love
Dr. Love is an ob/gyn who has been in practice for ten years. He and his partner, Dr. No, have been forced to double their staff over time to comply with current regulations that require extra paperwork. Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements have recently been a concern, and with rising malpractice premiums, employee benefits, and overall expenses, the doctors are faced with either joining another practice or selling their practice and working directly for the hospital. They are delaying the decision until more information emerges about the Affordable Care Act.
