Cuts in Medicaid Payments Likely to Worsen Doctor Shortage
The New American-2014/12/29 (米国)

The New York Times reports,
The Affordable Care Act provided a big increase in Medicaid payments for primary care in 2013 and 2014.

A controversial statistic suggests that in the near future our country will be in desperate need of more doctors. The Association of American Medical Colleges has estimated that by 2025 we will be about 130,000 short, thanks primarily to an exploding older population.
