The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), more infamously known as Obamacare, is once again in the news due to a lack of foresight in developing and writing this law. The problem is a lack of qualified physicians to treat the newly insured and the millions more to follow. Somehow, the architects of Obamacare failed to properly address this critical topic when formulating HR 3962.

A December 7 AP article described the healthcare plight of 61-year-old Olivia Papa as she has struggled to be seen by a primary care physician after signing up for insurance through the ACA exchange. Though relatively healthy, she and her husband needed to see separate specialists, so she called the doctor assigned to her, only to find out that the doctor wasn’t on the plan. A new doctor was assigned, but the result was the same; she left a message to make an appointment, “and they never called back.”
