“A recent McKinsey report that found that 70 percent of the products offered on the exchanges are either “narrow” or “ultra-narrow” products, meaning they include fewer than 70 percent of the local hospitals in their networks.”
Well that’s not good.
I agree. This cuts off service for a lot of folks who need specialized treatment.

This would be great, if it actually held true.
I agree! I would totally sign up for that, especially if it was low-cost.
But if that’s what you expected signing up for ObamaCare, go ahead and anticipate disappointment.
“WellPoint Inc. (WLP), the second-biggest U.S. medical insurer, has added 500,000 members since Obamacare enrollment began and said the system’s early stumbles haven’t dimmed profit estimates, boosting the company’s shares.”
Is that…is that good news, I see?
I can’t tell. It’s been too long since I’ve seen good news for me to know anymore.
The prognosis helped WellPoint shares overcome a 68 percent decline in fourth-quarter net income. – it looks like if it holds up, it’s going to be good news.
Wait. Keep reading. “The news wasn’t all good. WellPoint said last-minute rule changes by the Obama administration are likely to reduce profit by $100 million this year.”
So close. So close, and yet so far.
” 3 million young adults under age 26 have been able to stay on their parents’ plans under the law.” – You know, as a student, I’m really ok with this provision of ObamaCare.
For now. Until you have to deal with the exchange. Then, you’ll understand.
Just wait until your 26…
Apparently, you aren’t the only one: “The census has reported a drop in the uninsured rate among 19-25-year-olds since then, even as the rate for 26-34-year olds remained stable.”
Under the law, states can expand coverage to all those under 138 percent of the federal poverty level, about $26,951 for a family of three, with the federal government picking up 100 percent of the cost for the first three years.
That’s a lot of money for the government to just be picking up the tab.
“39% of the uninsured: ObamaCare has made us worse off.”
Wow, that’s a blow to the administration.
Will that translate into votes in November? Let’s hope.
“65% of the insured: ObamaCare has made us worse off too!”
“Obamacare’s approval rating is at an all-time low with only 24% of respondents indicating a favorable view.”
If that isn’t the signal the nation is sending to the government that we don’t want Obamacare, I don’t know what is.
