Way back when Obamacare was just a glint in Nancy Pelosi's eyes, anyone who had two brain cells to rub together predicted that people who didn't depend on the government for their coverage would get far better health care than those who did. Well, reality has just set in for Missourians. Here's a quote from an article that appeared in the Washington Examiner:
Patient advocates say the exclusion of one of Missouri’s top hospital systems from policies offered by the region’s biggest insurer under the Affordable Care Act could hinder treatment for some patients and force others to switch doctors.
The network for the Anthem BlueCross BlueShield plans, which will be sold through Missouri’s “Obamacare” marketplace, does not include BJC HealthCare and its 13 hospitals — among them Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the area’s premier academic medical center, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
