Physicians Organization Says Health Care Reform Bill Aggravates Physician Shortage
An op-ed published in two major newspapers this week says the new health care reform law overlooks the serious challenge posed by the present shortage of practicing physicians in the U.S. Louis J. Goodman, PhD, president of the Physicians Foundation, and its executive director Timothy B. Norbeck say the physician shortage being experienced by many states, including North Carolina, raises the question of whether there will be enough doctors to take care of everyone in the years ahead. Goodman and Norbeck say that there will be a great impact on patient care if Washington does not quickly address how to increase the physician workforce and medical residencies that will be required to meet a growing population and the influx of 30 million patients who gain coverage under the new law.
