NOBAMA CARE IN MANY HOSPITALS
Top hospitals opt out of Obamacare

Consumers, too, will struggle with the new system. Many exchanges don’t even list the insurance companies on their web sites. Some that do, like California, don’t provide names of doctors or hospitals.
The price differences among hospitals “can be pretty profound,” said Joe Mondy, spokesman for Cigna insurance. “When you are doing a cost comparison with doctors, you should look up the quality of the hospital as well. Hospital ‘Y’ could be great at pediatrics and not great at surgery.”
Insurers operating in the exchanges apparently are hesitant to talk about the trade-off between price and quality. Two of the nation’s largest insurers — Wellpoint and Aetna — refused to respond to a dozen calls and emails placed during the course of a week.
