The others are getting close to behaving like United with Humana almost overtaking them as being the worst

Tricare - I've been taking just as a thank you for the military personnel but just recently dropped them. They are paying worse than Medicare in some instances so it ends up actually costing me money

Obamacare is going to throw all these uninsured in the Medicaid pool but hardly any doctor takes Medicaid anyway so it's good rhetoric but actually does nothing
Well, until they start tying medical licensure with taking a certain percentage of medicaid and/or medicare patients, or some other inane measure. At which point, doctors will be screwed. But that's a bit off topic.
