A looming US doctor shortage
from Bloomberg Businessweek
When the Affordable Care Act's insurance mandate takes effect in 2014, some 30 million newly covered patients - people generally treated in emergency rooms now - will be shopping for doctors. That's a problem because the U.S. has 15,230 fewer primary-care physicians than it needs, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
