Default Confusion over doctor lists is costly for Obamacare enrollees in state

Frustration and legal challenges over the network of doctors and hospitals for Obamacare patients have marred an otherwise successful rollout of the federal healthcare law in California.

Limiting the number of medical providers was part of an effort by insurers to hold down premiums. But confusion over the new plans has led to unforeseen medical bills for some patients and prompted a state investigation.

More complaints are surfacing as patients start to use their new coverage bought through Covered California, the state's health insurance exchange.

"I thought I had done everything right, and it's been awful," said Jean Buchanan, 56. The Fullerton resident found herself stuck with an $8,000 bill for cancer treatment after receiving conflicting information on whether it was covered.

"How am I going to come up with that much money?"

Of course this will happen more and more, and as bankruptcies rise because of high medical costs and poor insurance coverage obama will be patting himself on the back for collapsing the insurance industry and putting thousands of more people out of work.

Obamacare begins to work as designed, collapse the US healthcare system so it can be replaced with socialized medicine. Our President claims the authority to rewrite the law at his pleasure but is blameless for the health care system collapsing thanks to Obamacare.

Tom and Jean lost their former insurance due to an insurer leaving the state because of an inability to comply with Obamacare and the California Health system, and Blue Cross changing their offered coverage due to the need to comply with Obamacare and the California health care rules, and the insurers are to blame?

What happened to "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan"?
