A doctor and professor of clinical medicine has some suggestions for how Americans can survive ObamaCare once it's fully implemented in 2014.

Amerling, Dr. Richard (Albert Einstein College of Medicine)With Barack Obama's election to a second term, Dr. Richard Amerling, associate professor of clinical medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, suggests some strategies doctors and citizens can take to survive the federal healthcare overhaul. For example, he advises Americans to seek out "concierge doctors" -- physicians who will accept a direct payment. On that note, he suggests physicians open concierge practices.

"Get a health savings account," Amerling advises patients. "Try to get a catastrophic health insurance policy [as well]. But even if you can't, you should try to set up a health savings account and use that to pay for your routine care, office visits, and tests."

He asserts there is one long-term solution that will truly benefit Americans.

"Long term, the only way to take back our country is to do a silent secession by moving en masse down to other red and purple states and trying to change the Electoral College balance of those states in our favor," the professor offers.

A handful of states have already declared they will not implement a health insurance exchange, and Amerling urges Americans to find out which states those are.
