More evidence that Medicaid expansion was a mistake

NY Times:

Doctor Shortage Feared as Medicaid Fee Raises Expire

Just as millions are gaining insurance through Medicaid, the program is poised to cut payments to doctors, prompting concerns that it will be difficult for patients to obtain care.
The situation is likely to be worse in states that expanded their Medicaid program adding more people to the rolls without adding doctors.  It is already leading to rationing of care and longer waits in many places.  With the lower fees, we can expect fewer doctors willing to take the cases leading to more rationing.
