For a lot of people Obamacare means finally having access to reasonably priced health coverage. But for many people that coverage also means not having a choice of medical provider. Anthony Amado has heard stories of people that have to travel long distances to see a doctor that fits the plan.
Having affordable health insurance is great, but is it really a benefit to people who have to drive hours to see a doctor? What are people supposed to do in a an emergency situation if the nearest doctor on the plan is over an hour away?
Many people are finding that the penalty fee for not having insurance, is cheaper than a monthly insurance premium, so are opting to pay the fee instead. Anthony Amado from New Jersey found the online marketplace easy to navigate, but was a bit disappointed with the choices in plans. Luckily for Anthony Amado, living in a large city means having access to a doctor within the plans limitations.
