In the state of Geogia, the governor's seat is up election. Gov. Deal's time is up, who was opposed to Medicaid expansion. Now with the prospect of a new governor, the issue has come up again, and I keep hearing about doctors refusing to accept Medicaid or Medicare patients. This ability to refuse these patients kind of astounds me.
It seems to me that since these are government programs, healthcare providers should not be allowed to refuse these patients. What do you think?
