    Is Medicare your primary insurance ? More and more doctors are closing their practice to new patients with Medicare because of the uncertainty each year about payments. You can use this site to search for Medicare doctors but it doesn't guarantee that they accept new patients. You may have better luck searching for a Family Practice physician instead of an Internal Medicine Physician.Also, in general, if a physician is employed by a hospital owned practice and the hospital itself takes Medicare, the doctors have to do so as well.

    This is the first year I purchased a policy through the ACA and its the worse policy ever. At first it took a long time to get my medical supplies approved. Now their giving me a hard time approving anything even with a prescription. And now my colostomy supplies my new doctor which was picked by Humana for my PCP tells me he no longer rights prescriptions. They now writes referrals and he can only write them with one company out of s. Florida. And its been two weeks and i'm still waiting.

    I always knew ACA was going to be a disaster. We can only hope it will be replaced.
