What doctors think about health care reform
What do doctors think about proposed health care reform? The voices of physicians in the current debate have been almost exclusively from national physicians’ groups and societies, and little has been known about "the doctor in the trenches" and how they view things. A recent study the The New England Journal of Medicine sheds new light on this issue.
Turns out that a majority of physicians (62.9%) support reform that includes both a public and private plan options. 27.3% support reform offering only private options.
