President Obama has been claiming that people can keep their favorite doctors under the Affordable Care Act. But anyone who wants a premier hospital in California better do some homework before signing up.
A survey of the state’s top hospitals has revealed that most contract with only one or two insurance companies under Obamacare, even though the Covered California exchange has 11 companies to choose from. And one hospital, Loma Linda University Medical Center, has refused to participate altogether and has no contracts.
Obamacare is driven by low-cost policies. So the reimbursement rate hospitals will receive from insurance companies just isn’t worth it to them. The end result is that the blue ribbon hospitals won’t have a large presence on the exchange, Watchdog.org has learned.
with what they spent on the website, and it sucks, just imagine what the actual health care will be like... government BS after government BS after...and all controlled in spec by the super-efficient and caring IRS. I was told my family can keep our doc, plan, and save $2500 every year. Lie after lie after lie...Now you say some in California think it may not be all free and glorious? maybe the payers may be outnumbered by the free recievers? There may be a fraction of a particle of hope for the deeply debted democrat state of california....

of government legislation!
