Why Obamacare scares me

After about eight months of paperwork, I'm finally a MediCal/DentiCal provider.

The thing is...MediCare has been largely cut since July 2009.
It only covers kids 6 months to 18 years.
It only covers a limited number of not-ideal procedures.

And get this...it pays ~$20 for an exam, $5 an Xray, etc.
I'd lose money after paying my staff.

If Obamacare touches dentistry, I'm genuinely scared.
