CONSUMER ALERT! Obamacare Insurers Sweeten Plans With Free Doctor Visits?

CONSUMER ALERT! Obamacare Insurers Sweeten Plans With Free Doctor Visits?

Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:

 Well, I altered the linked article’s headline. It was appropriate.

Are these sweetened plans or sweetened lies?

The thing about it that I have umbrage with is the fact that NOTHING IS FREE. That’s for starters–it MAY be immediately, apparently free for YOU. However, as is often the case, such sweetened plans may, in fact, simply be a semantic deception to encourage consumer adoption.

Please check out our earlier post concerning FREE HEALTHCARE STUFF. Of course, FREE IS NOT ALWAYS FREE!

BEWARE the Siren Call of “free stuff!” It simply does not exist. And even if it temporarily and immediately does for you, on the surface of things really, then EXPECT some shenanigans


Health insurers in several big cities will take some pain out of doctor visits in 2016. The plans will offer free visits to primary care doctors in their networks.

You read that right. Doctor visits without copays. Or coinsurance. And no expensive deductible to pay off first either.

In Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Miami and more than a dozen other markets, people seeking coverage through the insurance exchanges can choose health plans providing free doctor visits, a benefit once considered unthinkable.

The change is rolling out in a limited number of plans following reports that high copays and deductibles have discouraged many Americans who signed up for private coverage the past two years from using their new insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Insurers say they hope encouraging visits to doctors will benefit members and their bottom lines by catching illnesses early before they become harder and more expensive to treat. For example, prescribing antibiotics promptly to a patient with pneumonia could avoid a lengthy hospitalization costing tens of thousands of dollars.

In addition, the policy could also cut down on the use of more expensive urgent care centers and emergency rooms for cases that aren’t critical.
