SPOTLIGHT: Some providers refusing Medicare Advantage patients

At least some providers are bringing the hammer down when it comes to Medicare Advantage.

This, at least, is the position taken by physician groups like the Iowa Clinic and Mayo Clinic. Hmmm...sounds like a serious wrestling contest here.
