Be proud, America.

I see uninsured patients through a community program as do other local doctors. Today I received a letter letting me know that as of May, my services will no longer be required.

The charity didn’t run out of money or doctors; they ran out of patients. Since the beginning of the year they began helping patients sign up for insurance plans through the Obamacare exchange and through the law’s expanded Medicaid access. They anticipate closing their doors by May freeing up resources for other uses.

Thank you, America. You got something right.

    Wow, a powerful message deserves some positive comments! Congrats, America, from Australia. Now work on ending the problem of Americans thinking guns are a solution to the gun problem….

    Wow. That is fantastic!

  3. That is awesome news. That’s the kind of confirmation that it works that I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of in the near future. At least in some states.
