The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") was widely promoted by President Barack Obama with, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period.” However, many people discovered that they could not keep their doctors and that their premiums increased. The premium increase was dubbed “sticker shock.”
A November 5, 2013, article in the Washington (DC) Examiner was titled “Access shock a bigger problem for Obama than lost insurance.” Mickey Kaus, of The Daily Caller, posted on Twitter on November 6, 2013:
“‘Doc Shock’ is so much better than ‘Access Shock.’”
“Doc Shock” had also been cited on Twitter on May 10, 2013 and on October 25, 2013, but Kaus popularized the term. The blog Ace of Spades HQ posted on November 9, 2013, “Mickey Kaus linked this and used the expression ‘doc shock,’ which is pretty catchy.”

Access shock a bigger problem for Obama than lost insurance

But mounting evidence suggests that when insurance plans kick in on Jan. 1, sticker shock will be followed by another phenomenon — access shock.

Instead, if Obamacare keeps running into trouble–sticker shock, then “doc shock”–they will start to panic.
