Physicians have always been tasked with insurance forms. The HMO take over made it even more time consuming. Those that take the money from the insured, have always made it difficult for the patient to get the care they pay for. The physicians have to learn to be business people to sift through all the paperwork the health care companies cause for a patient to get the care they need and pay for. Here we have a highly educated professional that has to deal with the demands the insurance companies with just so many hours in a day. Long gone are the days when the physician spent most of their time with their patients to fight the companies to get the care needed. The ACA is just part of the system tugging on the fringes of a problem created by the companies that have a strangle hold on our health care professionals, it does not matter what system is on place, the real "winner" is the health care insurance companies. Always has been and always will be.
