Patients Having Hard Time Finding Doctors on the ACA Exchanges

More trouble for the ACA marketplace: Consumers are having a difficult time finding doctors because the lists offered are inaccurate, Kaiser Health News reports. This is occurring despite new federal rules designed to guarantee reliable physician directories.  

Kaiser reports that, “Some doctors in the directories are not accepting new patients and some are not participating in the network, say experts, brokers and consumers. Still other physicians in the directories, who are listed as ‘in-plan’, charge patients thousands of dollars extra per year in ‘concierge fees’ to join their practices,” Kaiser Health News reports.
