Obamacare’s Deductible Bait-and-Switch

Comment: Another Obamacare success story–a woman with a brain aneurysm forced to skip preventive care for it, thanks to Obamacare.  (The news isn’t all bad, however. The miracle that is Obamacare ensures that Ms. Wanderlich, 61, is guaranteed pre-natal care and lactation services for free!)

Patricia Wanderlich got insurance through the Affordable Care Act this year, and with good reason: She suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2011, spending weeks in a hospital intensive care unit, and has a second, smaller aneurysm that needs monitoring.”

“But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best.

Unable to Meet the Deductible or the Doctor
