The president of the El Paso County Medical Society spoke with NewsChannel 9 about the health care reform bill.
Dr. Andres Enriquez says that the doctors of El Paso do not stand behind this bill. He says although he agrees we need health reform, the government has just put a band-aid on a big problem. "They want us to see more patients for less amount of money," said Enriquez. "And guess what's gonna happen? Doctors are gonna close their doors to the medicare patients."
Although he's not standing behind the bill, Enriquez is happy that the government will be keeping an eye on insurance company abuse.
