The Health and Human Services Department released over the Fourth of July holidays, the latest batch of new Obama care regulations. The new release consists of 1300 pages of new regulations, which according to Mike Huckabee, former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey has taken the time to read and she reports that the first 600 or so pages revealed the new requirements on doctors who see Medicare patients.

According to McCaughey and experts the new regulations not only intrude on the care doctors give, but will increase the time doctors will have to spend with each patient in order to comply to the new regulations. It is estimated that doctors will have to spend an hour and 48 minutes with each patient, this does not include the hours a doctor has to spend doing the paperwork. This more than likely will mean that doctors will have to cut the number of patients that will be seeing each day and will lead to longer wait time between doctor visits.

2015 will not bring in any good news concerning Obama care, as the insurance companies are starting to release premium rates for next year. So far we have Colorado requesting a 17.5 percent premium hike, New York is requesting a whopping 28 percent hike, Virginia an increase of 14.7 percent, Ohio 13 percent, Washington 26 percent and the list goes on and on. It is estimated that the average health insurance premium next year will be increased from 10 to 25 percent, depending on your state. Small business will not be left out of a premium hike with its 11 percent increase. So much for affordable care and it has also been reported that the number of patients going to the ER for basic treatment continues to rise, even though more people have obtained insurance with the main reason being that they are unable to get an appointment with their doctor.
