After several attempts at trying to find doctors who accept my lame-o ACA health plan (Blue Cross Blue Shield advantage HMO), I finally reached my limit today when a rather important appointment got cancelled unless I wanted to pay cash, because “we don’t accept your policy”. When I googled “none of my doctors accept my Obamacare health insurance”, your article came up.
Do you or does anyone else know if there is some kind of plan of action for doctors to be forced to accept these ACA plans? This year alone, I have yet to visit ONE of my previous doctors who will accept an ACA plan (and I didn’t even get the cheapest plan!). Having had past surgeries, I feel it imperative to “go with who you know”, in that I want to see my past surgeon when there is a problem a year later that might need to be addressed. Beyond frustrated! And I don’t even live in a small town!! I am in Dallas, Texas, with thousands of doctors!
