Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) -- The Mayo Clinic, praised by President Barack Obama as a national model for efficient health care, will stop accepting Medicare patients as of tomorrow at one of its primary-care clinics in Arizona, saying the U.S. government pays too little.

More than 3,000 patients eligible for Medicare, the government’s largest health-insurance program, will be forced to pay cash if they want to continue seeing their doctors at a Mayo family clinic in Glendale, northwest of Phoenix, said Michael Yardley, a Mayo spokesman. The decision, which Yardley called a two-year pilot project, won’t affect other Mayo facilities in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.

Obama in June cited the nonprofit Rochester, Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio for offering “the highest quali

  • Despite what the left would have you believe, government does more to drive up the cost of health care than those "evil" insurance companies. Much like the patient that doesn't have health insurance, government programs like Medicare & Medicaid, under-pay health care providers. For those health care providers to remain in business, they must pass on the cost of those under-payments to the rest of us, who have health insurance.

    Liberals will likely think that the news that th More..

  • In 20 years, old people in the US will be treated like Jews in old Nazi Germany. They'll be murdered as soon as they can't pay taxes anymore, and all their stuff will be stolen.

    • You couldn't be more wrong about that. Under-payment by government programs have done more to raise the cost of health care for the rest of us, than any "evil" insurance company. Insurance companies must negotiate with health care providers to determine how much a service is worth, Medicare and Medicaid do not negotiate, they simply pay a fraction of the true cost. This drives up the cost for the rest of us. If your dumb enough to believe in your statement, then you obviously don't More..

      In many urban areas, physician practices bid to get patients from private insurers and commonly go as low as 70 to 80% of Medicare rates to get the patients. Places where there is More..
