The reporter blamed ObamaCare for some reason when we know the marketplace only provides access to insurers, not individual doctors or hospitals. The parents in this piece should have looked a lot closer at their policy choices first. But CBS should have known better:
Before watching this hack job, keep these facts in mind:
1. Insurers always have their own in-network doctors and hospitals, where they've negotiated terms of payment. Being excluded from other insurers is not "unprecedented" as one doctor describes it.
2. Two other insurers in the Marketplace to include Seattle's Children's Hospital.
3. Dr. Sandy Meltzer is either ignorant or a crazy ObamaCare opponent.
4. The reporter presents two false premises: that the Affordable Care Act was to provide a wider network of doctors and lower premiums. Actually, no one knew, but hoped this would happen. Yet reform changed that model, and premiums have seen historically slower growth.
