Access to a Waiting List

That’s what happens when 70% of doctors don’t join your exchange:

An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s Obamacare health insurance exchange and won’t participate, the head of the state’s largest doctors’ association said.

“Enrollment doesn’t mean access, because there aren’t enough doctors to take the low rates of Medicaid,” said Dr. Theodore M. Mazers, a past president of the San Diego County Medical Society. “There aren’t enough primary care physicians, period.”

The site is also showing doctors as participating when they’re not, presumably to entice people to sign up.  Funny, I’m old enough to remember when narrow networks were a feature, not a bug.
