Affordable Care Act. Affordable For Who?

Dr. Kent Mercado from Naperville has yet to be paid in 2017 for any patient he has taken care of through the ACA Medicaid programs but continues to treat every patient no matter their plan. He has a patient that needs surgery to remove a tumor, but no hospital will take her because they aren’t getting reimbursed. Hospitals and especially independent practitioners are not going to be able to sustain these practices for long. Dr. Mercado, a Chicagoland practitioner, joins Dan and Amy to discuss his experience dealing with the consequences of the GOP's failure to replace Obamacare.
