    Three physicians on my plan have told me they are dropping out of taking medicaid patients altogether.

    And as for the social conscience, they are the same physicians who go to Haiti, Nicaragua, and perform care-often, about every three to four months. Out of their own pocket.....

    I asked them why they intend to drop medicaid patients...their response? 1. Not enough pay. 2. Sometimes goes wrong and it isn't their (doctors fault) patients don't HESITATE to sue...as with everyone else, of course. 3. Just not worth the hassle.
