Your Specialist Is Your PCP

There are less and less family docs or internists specializing in primary care.   It is a fact and it will only get worse.  A new study shows that people are already adjusting.  At least 41% are getting their primary care from specialists.   Pretty soon they will be turning to auto mechanics and insurance salesman for their care.   That being said, the Reuters article had an interesting line:

The 2010 healthcare reform legislation, the Affordable Care Act, contains provisions directed at alleviating that shortage, including incentives for doctors to choose to specialize in primary care.

 Incentives?  Really?  Where?
