Top Hospitals Passing on Obamacare



The Obama administration has been claiming that insurance companies will be competing for your dollars under the Affordable Care Act, but apparently they haven't surveyed the nation's top hospitals.

Americans who sign up for Obamacare will be getting a big surprise if they expect to access premium health care that may have been previously covered under their personal policies. Most of the top hospitals will accept insurance from just one or two companies operating under Obamacare.

"This doesn't surprise me," said Gail Wilensky, Medicare director for the first Bush administration and senior fellow for Project HOPE. "There has been an incredible amount of focus on the premium cost and subsidy, and precious little focus on what you get for your money."

  1. …”precious little focus on what you get for your money.””

    All you idjits who voted for the lying piece of shit get hope and change!

  2. It’s the fault of those evil hospitals! Or the insurance companies. Or the free market. JUNK INSURANCE!

    The die-hards are circling the wagons, nothing can shake their faith. ACA has shifted right beneath their feet, transitioning from a plan to keep the status quo for the majority while covering the sick and poor, to a plan to save hundreds of millions of victims of “junk insurance” plans that they didn’t want, but were just too stupid to realize it.

    The break will come soon, where (D) congresscritters who are afraid of 2014 start to distance themselves from this daily drumbeat of failure and misrepresentation. The true believers will march off the cliff together, claiming that ACA was always about ridding the market of junk insurance and replacing it with better policies that are also cheaper, and counting on the magic of positive thinking to ensure that government will deliver on this version of what has been promised.

  3. “The break will come soon,”

    I don’t see it. The left will simply invent a new reason to blame the GOP or businesses.
    The bubble is impermeable.
