'Phantom Networks' Of Unavailable Doctors Plague Obamacare

The fears of patients across the country are being realized as they discover their doctors are not participating in the Obamacare health plans, The Los Angeles Times reports.

In late January, retiring Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, a Republican who is also a medical doctor, disclosed to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough that his Obamacare plan did not include the oncologist who has been treating him for prostate cancer. In order to continue to receive treatment from the same specialist, Coburn has to pay out-of-pocket.

Obamacare appears to be self destructing & eliminating itself.At least I hope so.

There are no "Obamacare" health plans. There is coverage either through insurance companies or government medical assistance.

Our health care has bit the dust people. Our dental system has bit the dust also.
I have seen 3 different dentists to get 1 tooth taken care of , all have been paid with referrals .
The tooth now has only a temporary filling , so that means I will have to get another filling.
We are now up to four visit with 3 dentist. I figure this tooth is the most valuable thing I own.
I used to go to the same dentist for fillings , extractions , cleanings etc. Mmm , I guess things have changed , I can't help but thank our leader Obama.
Is this called milking , or what?
