Obamacare: Long Waits And Restricted Doctors Networks

Obviously, we all know, and by “all” I mean people who aren’t suckling at Obama’s teet (you’re welcome for that visual), that Ocare will cause rationing, long waits, and limited medical facilities. We’ve heard these stories again and again and again since registration launched (or should that be “launched”?) on October 1st, 2013, particularly in regards to the limited numbers of doctors and medical facilities. Well, here comes more, per Fox News’ Jim Angle

Those who signed up for ObamaCare or were forced into it now are learning they’re going to face some nasty surprises when they seek care.

“Many consumers ended up purchasing a plan through the exchange, thinking it would cover their normal set of physicians, and hospitals,” says Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

“Now as they are using services, they are figuring out that they don’t.”

Yeah, but it’s affordable! Or should that be “affordable”? All the Ocare radio commercials here in North Carolina stress “quality” and barely mention affordability. The closest they come is “lower payments”, without mentioning that the deductibles are expensive.

For instance, one study shows that while a commercial plan would have about 40 cardiologists per 100,000 people, a typical ObamaCare plan would have an average of only 15.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute, or AEI, found a similar situation in a county in Florida where there are “seven pediatricians for a county that serviced almost a quarter of a million children. We found plans in San Diego County that only gave you access to 10 dermatologists.”

We know that Ocare stresses cost reduction over care, and consumers get neither.

The end result is plans that employ a version of rationing — either by distance or long wait times to get an appointment.

“You’re promised a lot of benefits on paper, but when you go to try to schedule an appointment to actually get access to the services, you can’t get that appointment,” says Gottlieb.

Welcome to Ocare.
