Glucose Level of diabetics?

@retiredteacher @dorisena I'm amazed that finding doctors who take Medicare patients is a problem at all. Of course, I check, but I have never, ever seen a doctor around here who does not accept Medicare! Frankly, I have gotten a little lax about checking because I just assumed they all did. I will have to be more vigilant in the future. A
Are the doctors who do not accept Medicare in private practice? Around here all of the doctors are actually employees of the hospitals. Maybe that's where the difference is.

@contentandwell JK, you may be right. The dr. who did not take Medicare is in a group. Apparently none of them but one will take Medicare. My PCP is in a group, but I don't know how many of them take Medicare or if all do. They are private groups, not employees of the hospital (which is more like a clinic). I don't know what's going on, but I guess the doctors decide what they will or will not accept as payment.
