ACA plans denied nearly 1 in 5 in-network claims in 2017 – Healthcare Dive

To see that almost 20% of ACA in-network claims have been denied in 2017 is not a good situation. And the lack of appeals on them (.05%) shows that for most providers, they just push back on the patient to pay.

A very good read to help consumers understand that the marketplace is not working properly and that you should be very careful talking to your medical provider about what they are prescribing you to do. Be very open in telling them that your financial situation cannot afford surprise bills, and ask if there is a way to check first before moving forward with your provider.

  1. This is very disturbing as many Dems in Congress believe they can “fix” ACA and that will be the best solution or the quickest way to universal healthcare. Some call it the incremental way toward our goal. Incremental heaelthcare actions are dangerous when so many Republicans want to privatize the whole shebang. Let’s go for it. Universal Healthcare for All, whether a mix of buy-ins, private supplements, state legislation…whatever it takes to keep all our residents healthy with affordable, accessible care.
