I recently debunked the idea that California is doing great on health care insurance. Not so, despite announcements that an enrollment target had supposedly been met. Here’s another issue: just because you’re enrolled doesn’t mean you get to see a doctor.
One viewer said she did months of research before picking the plan that Blue Cross recommended. But it’s still been a nightmare.
Katherine Cadman says her emails and calls aren’t getting anywhere. She says she signed up for an Anthem Blue Cross Plan, but doctors keep refusing to see her.
“It’s just not right,” she said. “It does make you feel like you’re a second-class citizen.”
See, doctors don’t like the reimbursement rates, so many refuse to see ObamaCare patients (just like they refused to see Medicare patients). The government has not forced doctors to see these patients.

The laws of supply and demand, and cost and pricing, do not get wished away or legislated out of existence.
