Most doctors still reject Medicaid as program expansion nears

Because of the program’s history of low payments, fewer than half of U.S. doctors and other health care professionals accept Medicaid patients, according to a recent study. For those that do, getting an appointment sometimes can take months, particularly among specialists. The lack of doctors is a problem that will only worsen as some 27 million people get health coverage by 2016 as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
