This kind of stuff is just starting. You are not just going to pay for Obamacare with your taxes. Given that insurers are forced to limit service providers in order to stay in business, you may be paying for it with your life.
Don’t know what they teach at the Suriname National College of Medicine? Well, you may soon be finding out.
CBS News presents this wrenching story of a four year old girl, Kate, whose ear infection progressed to the point that her hearing was nearly gone in one ear. Her parents apparently selected their insurer from the Washington state Obamacare exchange. Kate soon got the same bad news you, your children or grandchildren may be getting down the road: The specialist you need is out of network.
For now, the hospital is picking up her tab.
From the video:
Doctor: This is not an isolated incident. The exclusion of a major provider like Seattle Children’s (Hospital) from the major insurance network in this market is unprecedented.
Reporter: The hospital is considered in-network on only two of the seven plans from Washington State’s health exchange.
Doctor: We’re seeing denials of care, disruptions in care. We’re seeing a great deal of confusion and at times anger and frustration on the part of these families who bought insurance thinking that their children are going to be covered, and it’s in fact a false promise.
The false promise, really was that America could get sumthin’ for nuthin’. It don’t work that way.
