About Those Wait Times in Massachusetts
by

As Jim Antle informs us, as a consequence of Romneycare, patients in Massachusetts have to wait “as long as a month and a half for non-urgent physician appointments.”

As long as a month and a half? If only. In March, I set up an appointment with my primary care physician.

The appointment takes place on May 7, 2012.

Yes folks, by the time I see my doctor, I will have waited over 13 months.

Now to be fair, if I require care on a more urgent basis, I can see a physician far more promptly and have done so.

But if you don’t already have a PCP then you are up the proverbial creek because most are not accepting new patients. So if you need medical care and cannot find a doctor where do you go to get treatment? Why the emergency room, of course. Let me remind you that it was less than two weeks ago that Mitt Romney said he would sign Romneycare into law again if given another chance.

Hopefully Republicans will choose to wait for a better alternative to come along.
