It’s come to this, a family forced to choose between keeping their trusted doctor of 15 years or paying for their child’s education. But, that is the new healthcare reality for one California family discovering the true cost of Obamacare.

“We learned our annual healthcare cost was increasing by $5,000. Five thousand dollars! We attended a ‘healthcare fair’ put on by my husband’s employer to compare insurance costs and services. We were told in no uncertain terms that the reason our annual costs had gone up was because of Obamacare and the uncertainty surrounding it. As our daughter was going to be entering college the following fall, we could not afford the enormous annual increase and were forced to choose a different provider. With the selection of the new provider, we lost our family doctor of 15 years and had to select, at random, another physician. Our annual healthcare costs have continued to rise. We now have the added concern of my husband being retired and on a fixed income,” shared Shawn.

Before all the mandates and healthcare mayhem, families like Shawn’s were able to keep their doctor without breaking the bank. Part of the reason is that insurers are narrowing networks to offset the costs of complying with Obamacare, so they can keep their plans competitive. While some like Karen Pollitz , former HHS employee and now senior fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation, believe this is simply market competition, others are not buying it.

“We are frustrated that the President’s promise that we could keep our provider and doctor was a LIE – that is, unless we wanted to pay FIVE THOUSAND dollars extra per year! We had to choose between sending our daughter to college and having a healthcare provider we prefer. It’s shameful that the best healthcare in the world has come to this,” Shawn exclaimed.
