Obamacare Fixes Hide a Big Mess on the Back End

Perhaps more importantly, you may find yourself excluded from some of the best hospitals in the country and their affiliated doctors.

Deductible Sticker Shock

The consumers should be as mindful of deductibles and the hospitals and doctors in network as the monthly premium costs in shopping around.

“What you’re buying is not just the benefits specified in the law but whom you will have access to in getting the service delivered". Many of the policies being offered on the federal and state exchanges carry annual deductibles that often top $5,000 for an individual and $10,000 for a couple, according to The New York Times.

“Right now, most of the focus has been on the cost of the monthly premium and occasionally people have remembered to ...look at what the deductible and the co-insurance is, because that is as important as the premium,” she added.“Whether a hospital is in or out of network is really the third piece: don’t forget to look at what you’re buying.”

18-29year olds Jump Ship Over Obamacare Bait and Switch

Like most insurance policies, the lower the premium the higher the deductible. For example, in El Paso, Tex., for a couple both age 35, one of the cheapest plans on the federal exchange, offered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield, has a premium of less than $300 a month but an annual deductible of MORE than $12,000, according to the Times. In the case of a 45-year-old couple purchasing insurance on the federal exchange in Saginaw, Mich., a policy with a premium of $515 a month carries a deductible of $10,000 a year.

Some of the Best Hospitals Are Off Limits
Americans purchasing health insurance on the federal and state exchanges may be in for an even bigger shock when they discover some of the best hospitals in the country out of reach, even when those hospitals were previously available to them under their personal policies. That’s because most of the top hospitals in the country will accept insurance from only one or two companies operating under Obamacare.

Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new health care exchanges in New York, Texas and California will not offer patients access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centers, according to the Financial Times.

This is wonderful.

Passing along information without EVER citing the source or linking to any webpage where you are ripping it from.

Oh, BTW, don't believe everything you read on the internet. 90% of the crap you pawn off as your information (plaugerized from other writers) is factually inaccurate or completely misleading.

And since you are "just passing along information" it confirms your status as a lemming!

The typical "Topix Troll" intellectual response we've come to expect....

When Elvis died has nothing to do with your plagiarism, lack of originality and half a brain to do some fact checking before running on.

There is no link to the original story that was stolen from. No source = plagiarism. Besides, without linking to the source document, it makes it apparent you edited select parts of that for your own agenda.

And why would I want to research what you are claiming?

no link means you made the entire thing up or edited the original source material.

It is not for me to prove wrong what you claim, it is for you to back up your claims.

Chris Wallace pushed Obamacare architect Zeke Emanuel to answer.

“President Obama famously promised, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Doesn’t that turn out to be just as false, just as misleading, as his promise about if you like your plan, you can keep your plan?”

Emanuel tried heading toward after-the-fact nuances, but Wallace wouldn’t let go:“It’s a simple yes or no question. "Did the president guaranteed me I could keep my doctor,” said Wallace.

“Yes if you want to, you can pay for it,” said Emanuel.

CHARMING. What a scumbag.

Again, why should I spend my time researching to prove your accuracy for you? Seems as though that should be your job. Debate 101. Your post clearly defines what a lacking education you have. Simply cite a source by linking to the original material. Nobody is going out of their way to do your job for you.

If it only takes two seconds, then go right ahead and take your two seconds and find the link to the articles. If this were in an educational setting, you would receive a failing grade for not citing. Seems as though well educated is not part of your resume...

Who got owned??? you dumbfk...you're the one backing an asshool with an approval rating of 37%. Stay on the porch little bitch.

The Health and Human Services Department reported that 364,682 people had signed up for private coverage under the law according to "their" most recent figures. That is more than three times the October figure but still less than one-third of the 1.2 million that officials had projected would enroll nationwide. The administration's overall goal was to sign up 7 million people by next March 31, when open enrollment ends. GOOD LUCK.

Oregon had signed up 44 people, that's big.

California, which is running its own program, led the nation, with 107,087 sign-ups. New York, also running its own market, had 45,513.

Among states with federally run markets, Florida was the leader with 17,908 sign-ups. Texas, which has a bigger share of its population uninsured than any other state, had 14,038.

So far the real winner, is MEDICICAID. Nationally, an additional 803,077 people have been found eligible for Medicaid. Isn't that great???

365,000 payers and 803,000 FREE. Is it me or is this thing going the wrong way, lil bitch.
