> Does this mean that now docs will have to take medicaire patients and all that want the doc or are they still allowed to only take a few to fill the medicaire slots? And does that mean tha benzos are covered now? And my synthroid is hardly covered at all now and that is a have to have? Phillipa

You seem to have a misconception about Medicaire. Doctors don't have to treat any Medicare patients. They can refuse to accept any Medicare patients or only take a few.

I can almost guarantee you that this is not going to change, ever.

There aren't any "slots" required by Medicaire. A number of doctors or clinics have a rule that they will treat a specific number of patients -- but that is a personal decision, not a federal law.

If the law passes, it apparently will cover at least some benzo's. I'm just guessing (and as a taxpayer, I hope) that they will only cover the most cost effective generics. There are differences between various benzo's, but if you take a step back, they aren't really huge differences. Most any of them get the job done.
