Of course doctors can decide to not take new patients. But no where does it say they are permitted to limit that to not taking new Medicare patients. And doctors don't have to take medicare patients. But again, they can't pick and chose. What's next from the experts down at the hair salon, doctors can refuse medicare patients that have diabetes? Where does this new adverse selection stop? If there's a doctor out there that accepts medicare and is taking new patients but then decides that he will only accept new patients if they are not on medicare is flat out wrong and would be told so if a complaint was filed.
