The Year Ahead: Five Key Sectors - Mike Fernandez

Chairman / MBF Healthcare Partners Chairman / Simply Healthcare Plans, Coral Gables

Mike Vogel | 1/8/2013

“I expect that (President Obama) will move forward with his health care reform plans. There will be a tremendous increase in the number of Medicaid-qualified eligible. They will have an insurance card; the question is, will they have a doctor to see them? Our insurance-related businesses will grow. There’s been a ratcheting down of reimbursement for certain services. That will cause a significant number of health care providers to exit the marketplace.”
