California: ObamaCare Overwhelming Emergency Rooms, Spiking Wait Times
Obamacare Overwhelming California ERs, Spiking Wait Times (Washington Free Beacon)
The average wait time for an emergency room in California has risen to five hours–and thanks to Obamacare, some doctors fear it’s about to get worse.
While many Californians have enrolled in healthcare through Obamacare, far fewer doctors are accepting that insurance than the law’s proponents predicted. As a result, patients are heading to the emergency room to receive primary care.
According to Dr. Jay Kaplin of the American College of Emergency Physicians, almost half of emergency physicians are reporting that their emergency department visits have risen since Obamacare went into effect.
