The independent, private physician practice model will be largely, though not uniformly, replaced.  Most physicians will be compelled to consolidate with other practitioners, become hospital employees, or align with large hospitals and health systems for capital, administrative and technical resources…  Reform will exacerbate physician shortages, creating access issues for many patients.  Primary care shortages and physician maldistribution will not be resolved…  The imperative to care for more patients… will put additional stress on physicians, ticularly those in private practice.  Some physicians will respond by opting out of private practice or by abandoning medicine altogether…
