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.

Here's a little tidbit...

Obamacare is now opposed by a majority of very population for whom it was ostensibly passed.

Says who, Dr Mengela? Don't you think the Repubs are sooo remorseful that they didn't come up with a better plan prior to ACA? Oh that's right, they didn't have a plan. You're such the expert, aren't ya? You post like you're a paternalistic professorial statistical wizard. Hannutty's still on hold for ya. The,"Fullness of time," will prove that ACA was a fundamental step towards human rights, albeit flawed in it's initial roll out. Check back as the years roll by, let's see how many delusional Stats you can conjure up by 2016. Come on, I have confidence in you!! LOL

Not Mengela, the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll. I know, now they're not creditable.

If an ahole like Obama proposes Obamacare, and their point is, "We just can't say no; we have to have an alternative." Why? Why can't we just say no? Why does the ahole get to set the agenda, and the answer to it is always to assume that everybody wants it? We just have to come up with our own version that's better? Why not just say "no"?

WHY THE FK would we want to pay more.

Teach free market principles. Teach people how free market principles could accomplish what they want: More competition, which would equal lower prices, which would equal more health care and greater choice -- and it does not require a legislative plan. What it requires is government getting out of it.

What the fk are you talking about. No one is up set, you have nothing.

YOU ARE MISLEADING NO ONE.

And everyone should cut and paste factual info all day long to accurately keep the info out there.

What ever posessed you to vote for obuma, he has not delivered on. Unless you voted for him because he's black. Everything else you thought you saw in him wasn't and isn't there.

You are still shooting blanks. There is no defending the obuma lies.

CUT AND PASTED from the "NEW YORK TIMES" and reported on FOX...
