Most physicians have a pessimistic outlook on the future of medicine, citing eroding autonomy and falling income, a survey of more than 600 doctors found. Six in 10 physicians (62 percent) said it is likely many of their colleagues will retire earlier than planned in the next 1 to 3 years, a survey from Deloitte Center for Health Solutions found. That perception is uniform across age, gender, and specialty, it said. Another 55 percent of surveyed doctors believe others will scale back hours because of the way medicine is changing, but the survey didn’t elaborate greatly on how it was changing. Three-quarters think the best and brightest may not consider a career in medicine, although that is an increase from the 2011 survey result of 69 percent. ”Physicians recognize ‘the new normal’ will necessitate major changes in the profession that require them to practice in different settings as part of a larger organization that uses technologies and team-based models for consumer care.

When the debate was on about this program, supporters denied that anything like this would happen but then, well...its here and its real. Those who denied it would happen now are in the position of having to make up elaborate stories as to why we knew that all along and the old stand by, you have to pay for those who can't, its the American way. How is that sticking it to the rich guy thing working out? So far 2013 means that I will have to pay $1600 more in taxes and my health insurance is skyrocketing and where it ends we don't know. I am just so glad that millionaire Barack and near billionaire John Kerry and millionaire Hillary and millionaire Bill and the millionaires in the Senate are going to stick to the rich guy. I don't if I can afford much more sticking it to the rich guy.I have always been a Democrat and am liberal in most issues but it appears that to be an American liberal you also have to be dumber than a box of rocks and unable to accept its messed up, dude.

Not until Congress wises up and mandates a single payer system will the cost of health care be harnessed. Until then health insurance companies and the health care industry will continue to run roughshod over our country.

Greeceman, it shifts the costs from those who are not paying anything now to those who ARE paying for everything now. OF COURSE the costs are going to increase to those who are paying.

My wife's insurance is up 40%. Lower costs for women? BBBWEHAHAHAHAHAAH!

One person with terminal cancer can use up probably an amount > 20 normal people. Yet they pay the same as anybody else.

Who pays for the difference? Those who are paying NOW, only MORE.

Hair on fire right wingers like to cherry pick changes due to Obamacares. Keeps the psychos fired up.

"The law, also known as "Obamacare," eliminates discriminatory market practices that have imposed higher rates on women and people with medical conditions.

It also limits how much insurers can charge older people. But while the changes are expected to lower costs for women, older beneficiaries and the sick, men and younger, healthier people will likely see higher rates as insurers try to hedge against continued risks.

"Women are going to see some lower costs, some men are going to see some higher costs. It's sort of a one to one shift ... some of the older customers may see a slight decline, and some of the younger ones are going to see a slight increase."
