Healthcare ruling renews concern in California over patient access
Los Angeles Times

California’s top physicians group warned that the newly insured under the federal healthcare law may have trouble finding a doctor available to treat them.

James T. Hay, president of the California Medical Assn., said his group supports the individual mandate and insurance market reforms upheld by the court.

But he said “there are serious flaws in the Affordable Care Act that do not address the underlying problems of patient access to physicians that need to be addressed by Congress and the president immediately.”
