My New Healthcare Mess
Hooray for the new healthcare... none of my current doctors/dentists accepts my (platinum) plan. And now I'm also limited to only 3 hospitals in the entire county
(one of the 20 most populous counties in the US).
So I've had to switch every single one of my doctors, dentists, pediatricians and specialists. I've already been declined for two MRIs and one prescription (all of which were doctor-ordered) due to "not enough information to determine medical necessity", something that has never happened to me or my family before, and I've had this plan for less than a month.
If I want to switch my plan to something comparable that is more generally accepted (non-marketplace), it's going to cost another ~$160/mo (it didn't cost that much before this year). Tack that on to the $1200+ I already pay monthly, and we're just over $1400. Oh, and I have until today to make that decision, otherwise I'm stuck in this plan for a year, regardless of whether or not my employer starts offering health benefits.
Platinum plan. Yep.#ACA
