Poll: Physician split on universal health care

The Democratic Party is promising universal health care coverage for all Americans, although nobody is willing to say who will pay for the program.

A new survey of doctors shows that many are skeptical of the concept of "universal health care" or whether it would improve medical care for their patients.

Physicians were asked if they believe that universal health care insurance will significantly improve access to health care for all Americans by Inc. The results of the survey? About 38% of doctors indicated no improvement while 33% of physicians feel that it would significantly improve access to health care. More than 44 feel that there is no evidence to support that expanding insurance coverage is a cost-effective way to promote health.
