Yes, I do agree with your second paragraph. I saw the same concerns pop up with Medicare doctors when Part D coverage came into effect. A lot of seniors saw doctors leave the plan in the earlier stages. I believe these things do sort out as it becomes easier for a medical practitioner to bill and be paid for their services. People do have coverage, just maybe not what they expected at first, but I say give it time to sort out the kinks.

@llaa, my third paragraph was a troll -- an exaggeration to illustrate the fact that the ACA actually does force people to buy coverage for things that they neither need or want.

I'm glad that you agree with the rest of what I said, though.

A bunch of half truths and falsehoods!

One, the ACA does not cover abortions, sex changes, IVF Fertility treatments, and quakery. However, there is a provision that could be used as a wedge for alternative medicine, but the insurance providers are able to choose their networked doctors so that is not a big issue. There is legislation in the works to remove it, but I don't think that is necessary.

I just heard that only 18% of the uninsured, the ones who Obamacare was purported to help, have even gone onto the website -- less than the number that don't even know Obamacare exists.

Most of the traffic to the web site is from people whose current health insurance has been cancelled, and the VAST majority of them are finding higher premiums, higher deductibles, higher out-of-pocket costs, fewer choices of doctors and hospitals, and no coverage at all when traveling outside of their local area.

On the upside, the new Obamacare plans DO cover, abortions, contraception, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, sex changes, fertility treatments, and maternity care for men and seniors, in addition to acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, reiki (whatever the hell that is), energy healing, meditation, and other forms of "alternative" quackery.

We should tell Obama, "If you like your balls, you can keep your balls -- PERIOD!" (wink, wink)
