The Kaiser Family Foundation has a quiz asking ten questions on various parts of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. The questions are fairly easy if you’ve been paying attention and have been able to slash your way through the massive misinformation jungle that has surrounded the ACA. I got 9 out of 10 correct. I did not know whether or not the ACA raised the Medicare tax on high income earners.
I lost the page that referred me to the quiz, but it was talking about how misinformed even doctors still are about the law. 30% of one specialty got the end-of-life governmental panel question wrong. Luckily, doctors don’t need to understand the intricacies law in order to provide care. I’d be interested in a poll to see how many primary care physicians knew which procedures were guaranteed to be covered by insurance without a deductible now because of the ACA. And by interested, I likely mean horrified.
