Incentivise Medical Specialist to Provide Services for Medicaid Recipients

This petition had 1,255 supporters

In the healthcare debate, we hear many different sides. People obviously want healthcare, and many were very happy to receive it through the ACA as their pre-existing condition was no longer a liability. However, the ACA isnt perfect. I had to leave a job because of health issues. I need a team of doctors as I have gastroparesis, degenerative disc disease, depression and anxiety, and more; however, specialist won't accept the State Sponsored insurance I have through Medicaid. There is a myth that people that have Medicaid, or food stamps, or (gasp) welfare, are just lazy. I can tell you firsthand that isn't the case. I want to work, I want to do things with my son, but I need doctors to make that happen. So please, help me and countless others get their life back and find a way to incentivise doctors to accept insurance from low-income patients so we can contribute to society once again.
