Will Health Care Reform Lead to Doctor Shortage?

Ad Feedback

The new health care law could lead to a shortage of up to 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years.

The Wall Street Journal reports there won't be enough doctors to treat the millions of people who will have health insurance under the new law.

Analysts say the greatest demand will be for primary care physicians, and that could mean more limited access to health care and longer waiting lines.

Some medical schools are increasing enrollment, and four new medical schools opened this year.
