A cancer survivor that signed up for health insurance on Oklahomas federally-run Obamacare exchange was told there isnt a single doctor that accepts the plan within 400 miles of her, according to KTEN-TX.
Janet Grigg, who has survived colon cancer, attempted to use her newly-purchased Blue Cross Blue Care insurance plan at her regular cancer screening, but was turned down.
When I got there they said to me that the [insurance] card would not be accepted, and that they had in fact received a memo, Grigg told KTEN-TX. She was left to pay for the visit out of pocket, as well as any future visits to the practice.
Grigg said that she called the Obamacare exchange in her state and the representative told her they receive calls like this every day.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma, which provides the health care plan, issued a statement to KTEN blaming recent health reform for the problem.

Health care desert.
Yes, Comrade nobama has “provided” us great health care. However, there are no doctors.
You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs...
What a ****ing disaster this is...
A pox on every single person who voted that stain and his communist ideology into office.
Here is how health care worked in the Warsaw pact during the time of the USSR - from first hand experience.
You bribed a doctor to see you.
You bought your drugs on the black market
You brought in a your own linen, food and TP to your hospital room
You bribed the nurse to look after you
This is socialized medicine...
Sandra Fluke gets free birth control!!!
It sounds like our VA hospitals are ahead of the curve in reaching the Soviet level of care.
Health care becomes ‘affordable’ once the sick are eliminated.
“She was left to pay for the visit out of pocket, as well as any future visits to the practice.”
And, is it true that these out-of-plan costs will NOT count against total out-of-pocket or deductible limits for in-plan services? That is to say, the policy holder will still have to satisfy the full face amount of deductible and OOP limits, as if these charges NEVER occurred?
IIRC, that was noted in some of the hype surrounding Zero-don’t-care, a few months back. I’ll do some more checking.
Friends in Brazil describe their government healthcare system simply as “the butcher shop”. Only the very poor use it, while the rest often go into debt to pay for quality private medical care.
A friend in the UK delayed surgery until he went to Germany on a business trip in lieu of the “free” care available in London. Their system apparently allows EU residents to use Germany’s high quality health care system.
Government run health care or health insurance is not about medicine it’s about Marxist power over the population.
And that doc 400 miles away? Most likely he was the only one who accepted the plan's low rates because he's so bad that's the only way he would get patients.
The only way to deliver low health insurance rates is to restrict the supply of available docs, and thus the amount of treatment delivered.
The tip of the iceberg...just like the V.A. scandal.
OsamaObamaCare...health care delivered with the efficiency of the Postal Service and the compassion of the Internal Revenue Service.
Janet Grigg bought a pig in a poke...
So, will she have to move in order to get treatment?
I know, I know:
"If you like your place of residence, you can keep your place of residence. PERIOD!"
“Sandra Fluke gets free birth control!!!”
And prisoners can get sex changes!
She has to pay out of pocket, or drive 400 miles. In any case, she has to have the insurance, whether she can use it or not. As required by law.
