Report: 1/3 of NY doctors unclear about networks under healthcare law

Report: 1/3 of NY doctors unclear about networks under healthcare law

Doctors across New York are still trying to figure out what to do with the nation’s healthcare law.

According to our media partner, Capital New York, one out of every three physicians across the state say they don’t know if they’ll participate in new health insurance networks created by the Affordable Care Act.

The doctors were surveyed by the Medical Society of New York State.

The head of that society says doctors are concerned about how they’ll be reimbursed, and about care networks that they say are too narrow.

The society represents about 30,000 licensed physicians in New York.
