Default Health Care reform....any incentives for Non Immigrant Physicians

Health care reform has been passed for good or bad only time will tell.
But suffice to say it will give 30 million Americans some kind of coverage to seek medical care meaning more physicians are needed to provide care for these folks.

IV in the past had been working on excluding non-immigrant physicians from the EB category.Now that Health care reform has been passed, has anything been included in it for physicians practicing in rural areas(immigration benefits) ? If not i think we have missed a golden opportunity.

Default missed?

It is only missed if it is possible. We were in contact with key senate offices.
The bill was just too controversial and the appetite to include immigration provisions was just not there. We are stll making last minute efforts. the provisions are in the current CIR version and should be in all versions introduced as far as we know.

Does the bill have provisions to increase residency positions ? I heard few months back about hard lobbying to increase the match positions by 15000 to accomodate new patients because of the mandate. Any idea?

Thanks

Havent seen any increase in residency positions.
I dont think the bill addresses the 'real' issues that are plaguing health care in this country.
