Also, physicians have a choice when it comes to accepting health insurance or not, and many are choosing not to take more Medicare patients due to the lowered rate of reimbursement. If the government enacts a plan of Medicare for all, how would this affect the number of physicians available? Would more choose to accept the government’s plan, or would there be a greater shortage in providers?
