Nothing in the text of the Affordable Care Act requires that a primary care physician admit patients 76 or older (or any age) in order for their hospital care to be treated under Medicare. Medicare coverage for hospital care is governed not by the ACA, but by provisions of the Social Security Act. SSA does not have any requirement that admittance to the hospital has to be done by a Primary Care Physician.

Do some research.

As I said, and provided in the initial link. Internet myth.

Take care,
Mike
