    Top hospitals opt out of ObamaCare

    The Obama administration has been claiming that insurance companies will be competing for your dollars under the Affordable Care Act, but apparently they havenít surveyed the nationís 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.

    Something that may have been lost in all of this discussion,
    is how this will affect medical research?

    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    You don't accept insurance that is sold on the exchanges. Medical providers are still free to pick what insurance plans they will take.

    Your policies are not transparent. A Blue Cross policy purchased privately is coded differently than a Blue Cross policy purchased through an ACA exchange. Healthcare providers are not universal providers.

    I suspect that this will be similar to the private vs public hospitals. If you receive any type of state funding you will be required to see anyone that walks through your doors (in an ER setting) whereas privates can refuse to treat unfunded patients. Lots of moving parts still. The reality is no one knows.

    pull your head out of your ass this was warned by republicans their media sources and their think tanks for years, but I guess you believe the left and their lame stream media telling you they were all liars

    and sure lets force doctors to accept Medicare/Medicaid and other insurance lets drive more doctors out of the profession

    and you call your self a libertarian? wanting to force a doctor to give up his individual liberty to decide what he does and doesn't do. you have no clue on libertarianism

    Those people who buy their insurance through the exchanges is about 5% and I would venture a guess these are not people who go to the "top hospitals"
