It is unclear how much physicians will be reimbursed by health insurance plans offered through the state exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), reports Kaiser Health News. However, many physicians are concerned that the plans will offer low payment rates. Information gathered by KHN suggests that some exchange plans will pay less than the Medicare reimbursement rate. As a result, many doctors have not decided if they will participate in the new plans.
