Obamacare may have promised health insurance for the masses. But on its first day, it’s left more Americans without coverage than before the law was passed.

More than 4.7 million Americans had their health insurance cancelled as a result of any of the thousand-plus-page law’s new rules, the Associated Press reports, but the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) confirmed Tuesday that between federal and state exchanges, just 2 million Americans have signed up for Obamacare coverage.

from what I understand the paying part of the web site has not been built yet..or is now in the process of being built ..this whole thing should have been put on hold or better yet scrapped ..insurance companies our getting apps without complete info they cannot process to cover indivduals ..people who might be under the impression today they are covered..until they go to the doctor damned.gif

So... of the 2 million who signed up, half are without coverage until they can pay. If they do need h/c, they're uninsured. My gawd, this just gets worse and worse.

Not to beat a dead horse,,,but,,,whatever,,,

I found one Obamacare health plan that offers access to only seven pediatricians for a county with 260,000 children. Another Obamacare plan offers access to only nine dermatologists, most 100 miles away. A systematic analysis we did of the plans shows that, on average, their networks include about 40% to 50% of the number of specialists that are available in comparable commercial PPO health plans.

The Obamcare plans are a throwback to the old HMO model that was soundly rejected in the 1990s in favor of PPO style health plans.

But the tradeoff is access.To pay for the expanded Obamacare benefits, consumers are forced into narrow networks that limit their choice of doctors. This cheapens the policies enough to offset the other costs.
