Obamacare Enrollees Hit Snags At Doctor’s Offices


obamacareAfter overcoming website glitches and long waits to get Obamacare, some patients are now running into frustrating new roadblocks at the doctor’s office.

A month into the most sweeping changes to healthcare in half a century, people are having trouble finding doctors at all, getting faulty information on which ones are covered and receiving little help from insurers swamped by new business.

Experts have warned for months that the logjam was inevitable. But the extent of the problems is taking by surprise many patients – and even doctors – as frustrations mount.

Aliso Viejo resident Danielle Nelson said Anthem Blue Cross promised half a dozen times that her oncologists would be covered under her new policy. She was diagnosed last year with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and discovered a suspicious lump near her jaw in early January.

But when she went to her oncologist’s office, she promptly encountered a bright orange sign saying that Covered California plans are not accepted.

“I’m a complete fan of the Affordable Care Act, but now I can’t sleep at night,” Nelson said. “I can’t imagine this is how President Obama wanted it to happen.”

  1. >>>Barack Obama discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Joe the
    Plumber to come and fix it. Joe drives to Obama’s house, which is located
    in a very nice neighborhood, where it’s clear that all the residents make
    more than $250,000 per year.
    >>>Joe arrives and takes his tools into the house. Joe is led to the room
    that contains the leaky pipe under a sink. Joe assesses the problem and
    tells Obama, who is standing near the door, that it’s an easy repair that
    will take less than 10 minutes.
    >>>Obama asks Joe how much it will cost. Joe immediately says, “$9,500.”
    “$9,500?” Obama asks, stunned, “But you said it’s an easy repair!” “Yes,
    but what I do is charge a lot more to my clients who make more than
    $250,000 per year so I can fix the plumbing of everybody who makes less
    than that for free,” explains Joe. “It’s always been my philosophy. As a
    matter of fact, I lobbied government to pass this philosophy as law, and it
    did pass earlier this year, so now all plumbers have to do business this
    way. It’s known as ‘Joe’s Affordable Plumbing Act of 2013.’ Surprised you
    haven’t heard of it.” In spite of that, Obama tells Joe there’s no way he’s
    paying that much for a small plumbing repair, so Joe leaves. Obama spends
    the next hour flipping through the phone book looking for another plumber,
    but he finds that all other plumbing businesses listed have gone out of
    business. Not wanting to pay Joe’s price, Obama does nothing. The leak
    under Obama’s sink goes unrepaired for the next several days. A week later
    the leak is so bad that Obama has had to put a bucket under the sink. The
    bucket fills up quickly and has to be emptied every hour, and there’s a
    risk that the room will flood, so Obama calls Joe and pleads with him to
    >>>Joe goes back to Obama’s house, looks at the leaky pipe, and says, Let’s
    see – this will cost you about $21,000.” “A few days ago you told me it
    would cost $9,500!” Obama quickly fires back. Joe explains the reason for
    the dramatic increase. “Well, because of ‘Joe’s Affordable Plumbing Act,’ a
    lot of rich people are learning how to fix their own plumbing, so there are
    fewer of you paying for all the free plumbing I’m doing for the people who
    make less than $250,000. As a result, the rate I have to charge my wealthy
    paying customers rises every day. “Not only that, but for some reason the
    demand for plumbing work from the group of people who get it free has
    skyrocketed, and there’s a long waiting list of those who need repairs.
    This has put a lot of my fellow plumbers out of business, and they’re not
    being replaced – nobody is going into the plumbing business because they
    know they won’t make any money. I’m hurting now too – all
    thanks to greedy rich people like you who won’t pay their fair share.”
    Obama tries to straighten out the plumber: “Of course you’re hurting, Joe !
    Don’t you get it? If all the rich people learn how to fix their own
    plumbing and you refuse to charge the poorer people for your services,
    you’ll be broke, and then what will you do?” Joe immediately replies, “Run
    for president.”

  2. This demonstrates the idiocy of supporters of this thing and other Obama policies. She obviously was wronged seriously and still claims to be a supporter.
