In Washington state, some sick kids have been denied specialty care due to Obamacare, a local news outlet reports:
"Administrators at Seattle Children's today said they predicted this would happen, and it's even worse than they expected," says the local news anchor. "Patients being denied specialty treatment at the hospital by insurance providers on the Washington health benefits exchange. Children's filed request on behalf of 125 of their patients. Of those, they say they got only 20 responses, eight of which were denials. Dr. Sandy Melzer says all this comes after reassurances of certain unique specialty cases would still be covered."
Dr. Sandy Melzer says, "Well, some of the patients who were denied are ones who clearly would fall into that unique category. A two-year-old with new significant neck mass that was being evaluated for infection or malignancy, an older child with a chronic severe medical condition requiring multidisciplinary care here, a baby that had a skull abnormality."
The anchor explains, "Children's went ahead and treated those cases anyway, but Dr. Melzer said they can't afford to keep doing that it way."

That pretty well sums up obamacare right there. We all knew it was going to be bad, very bad. Heck, even the kool-aide drinkers knew it was going to be bad, they went ahead and lied to us about it anyway.
So while everyone knew obamacare was going to be a disaster, it is turning out to be even worse than we feared.
Commie medical programs don’t pay for anyone who won’t be able to be a government tax slave. Our government will only keep workers healthy enough to pay taxes. Any other category will be left to die.
They lied. You believed them. You voted for it. End of story..........
Hitler didn't like imperfect people either and his control over medicine began with getting "mentally defective" kids picked up and taken to a facility designed to put them to death.
Part of Obama's plan to get his Marxist dreamworld is by denying medical care for those people who he decides are inferior.
Let's not forget that they have nothing to worry about because they EXEMPTED themselves from the obamacare monstrosity.
When is it time for torches and pitchforks? They need to be thrown out!
Our system wasn't perfect before, but at least you didn't have self-exempted politicians and the freakin IRS standing in the way between you and your kid's doctors.
Really America-are you awake yet!?
In other words, of 125 ObamaCare patients (all children), only 12 were covered by the ObamaCare they thought they had. That is the result I expected - below 10% success. Ninety percent of those who thought they had managed to get ObamaCare actually have no useful coverage when their children are very sick.
Evil capitalist pigs! They can AFFORD it, alright, they're a bunch of rich fatcat doctors! They just don't WANT to give back. This is NOT because of Obamacare!
That exactly how a large segment of this country has been conditioned to think.
