California Obamacare: Fewer Choices, No Directory

Californians looking for a doctor who accepts Obamacare have no directory to match their plans with available physicians. Provider networks are limited and Covered California customers say that they are having difficulty finding participating physicians, The Los Angeles Times reported.

As 1.2 million Californians get set to renew their policies and hundreds of thousands register for the first time, between Nov. 15 and Feb. 15, the number of doctors participating is in some instances being cut. The Affordable Care Act will see more clients under Covered California— which includes 10 insurers— but fewer choices of available doctors, according to the Times.
