How will Obamacare affect you?

“You won’t have to change doctors.”

“If you like your current plan, you can keep it.”

“It will reduce the cost of health care.”

These are just some of the promises made by Barack Obama and a Democrat controlled Congress as they shoved the massive, complicated bill through without reading it.

A new ad running in Ohio shows how one mother is afraid of how the law will affect her daughter’s health care.

One thing we know is a fact: ObamaCare will limit millions of Americans’ medical options, regardless of whether they currently have insurance or are enrolled in a government program.

  • Many health insurers are planning to decrease the network of health care providers available to their customers because of the law’s cost-increasing effects, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
  • The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 7 million Americans with employee-sponsored health insurance will lose their coverage by 2022 because of ObamaCare’s high costs, leaving them with less choice of health care providers.
  • The medical journal Health Affairs states that one-third of doctors are expected to not accept new Medicaid patients in states that choose to expand the program under the law.
  • According to the Doctor Patient Medical Association Foundation, 83% of doctors are considering quitting the medical practice, largely because of government interventions like ObamaCare.
  • The Wall Street Journal reports that many of the plans available on the new health care exchanges will include relatively few choices of doctors and hospitals.
  • 17% of doctors foresee closing their private practice in the next year because of financial strains on the medical industry, according to a report on CNN.
