    Default Obamacare. Not working for us

    Got my wife on Covered Ca./ Blue Shield after Kaiser canceled us. Costs way more than my cell phone. Nov. 7 she fell and broke both bones in her left leg and her big toe. Went to Blythe ER, splinted it, sent her home. Went to Primary doc on Monday and got referred to orthopedic surgeon in Palm Springs. Most of the ortho docs on Blue Shields network will not accept Cov. Ca. The ones that will do the surgery at Eisnenhower Med. Center. Guess what. Eisenhower does not accept Cov. Ca./ Blue Shield. As is turns out neither does Desert Hospital or JFK hospital. So, here we are on day 12. We don't have an ortho doc or a hospital that will take her. We are going to try Riverside General thurs. No guarantees and it's 200 miles away

    That's just awful!!! So sorry to read this.

    Unfortunately there are thousands in the same boat.

    I've posted many times how fortunate we were to retain our Blue Shield grandfathered plans during Debs Chemo, and how those who were forced into ACA were absent from the offices after Oct.

    Our Family practice medical center, in effect, will not honor any covered CA plans. They don't officially say so, they just schedule you a year out for even a checkup.

    I have been called out as a liar for these statements by those who are in support of ACA, but unfortunately those like you and your wife know that it is true.

    Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery!

    Sorry to hear you guys are having to deal with this. My wife works in the medical industry and I get to hear all the horror stories about O'care.

    R4R I'm sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with your wife. I hope things go well and can't believe you have to travel 200 miles without guarantees.

    We pray everyday that something like what happened to you all don't happen to us. Our insurance went up a lot along with the deductible through the roof. The wife now has an Obama arm and I have a Obama knee. We call it that because before we would have went to the doctor but due to Obama we have to live with it.

    I am sorry to hear of your troubles and wish your wife well for recovery. Your story seems to be very common though as I have read that a lot of medial facilities will not cover ocare policies because they are not receiving the reimbursements promptly and they are much lower reimbursements so the doctors and just now proving service to ocare policies.

    It was predictable, and many people including myself did predict it.
    It wasn't hard to do.

    If you don't pay your car insurance, it gets canceled. When Uncle sugar does not make the subsidy payments to the carriers, they don't pay the doctors, the doctors don't accept those policies any more.

    Most quality caregivers, like our family medical center, didn't even give it a shot. They knew damned well it was a loser and simply axed any ACA related patients.

    Who can blame them? Just wait until the carriers sue the Feds for billions in un-funded accrued debt...while the poor souls FORCED out of existing pre-ACA policies suffer.

    If not stopped somehow, the entire care/ coverage industry will fiscally collapse into a forced Govt. single payer system...sound familiar?

    So sorry to hear this. That really sucks. Prayers sent and wishing for a speedy recovery.

    I have heard some of the hospitals in Mississippi rejecting BC insurance. They finally got it straight though.

    It's a complete joke and only a mindless democrat would support it.

    mindless or stupid .... hummmmm......


    Just listening to this immigrant advocate on O’Reilly.
    O’Reilly says to him, “do you think the people under the executive order should get welfare benefits?”
    The advocate replies, “we know already that we can’t get Obama Care but that’s not what we want we just want the normal life”

    Let's be fare. I just want the “normal life” to please.
