ObamaCare’s Narrow Networks and High Deductibles Hurt American Families

ObamaCare’s Narrow Networks and High Deductibles Hurt American Families

Early predictions of ObamaCare’s failure were ignored, yet a new government report shows that American families are—as predicted—having trouble affording and accessing health care.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Obamacare enrollees had trouble affording and accessing health care as well as understanding how to use their plans, according to a report from the Government Accountability Office.

.  . . .  According to the report, some enrollees have been overwhelmed when trying to juggle the need to pay out-of-pocket costs on top of monthly premiums and other life expenses. Many of these enrollees have lower incomes and have been uninsured, so they may have not previously paid for health care expenses, a fact that may contribute to dissatisfaction with their plans’ affordability.

Some Obamacare enrollees said they have faced problems accessing care. The Obamacare exchanges offered 34 percent fewer providers than plans offered outside the exchanges, according to one analysis.

That could have been me holding that sign in 2009 at the entrance to Mission Hospital in Asheville. It didn’t do any good, obviously.
