California’s ObamaCare Exchange Can’t Match Doctors to Plans

If you purchase an ObamaCare plan in California, good luck trying to find a directory that matches your insurance policy with a specific doctor.

“Altogether, the 10 insurers in Covered California have contracted with an estimated 75% of California’s licensed physicians, or nearly 90% of those considered active in the state,” reports the Los Angeles Times. “However, many of those doctors are available in just one or two health plans.”

That is, if you can find them.

“There’s no timetable for a state provider directory after the exchange scrapped an initial version that was riddled with errors. Instead, Covered California refers people to insurance company websites that vary in usefulness,” says the paper.

The resulting anger and confusion has spawned almost 300 complaints…[more]

A carpenter in Oklahoma learned the hard way that some football fans and coaches put a premium on team loyalty. Contractor Brent Loveland showed up at Oklahoma State football head coach Mike Gundy's house to begin work on home improvements wearing a gray University of Oklahoma baseball t-shirt.  Upon seeing the rival shirt, Coach Gundy yelled, “how dare you [Loveland] come into my house and offend my wife” wearing that shirt on “OSU soil.” 
 
According to news reports, Loveland proclaimed to Gundy that he had no idea what he was talking about and that Gundy proceeded with profanity which “would make a sailor blush” and began calling him a “stupid idiot.” Loveland apologized and tried to make peace by offering to wear the shirt inside out.  Gundy refused the apology and fired the contractor.
 
Loveland, who claims he was never told or instructed to not wear University of Oklahoma gear at Gundy's house, filed suit in district court against Gundy and his wife, seeking more than $10,000 in damages for termination and embarrassment.

In a statement released through his attorney, Gundy stated, "While I cannot discuss the specifics of pending litigation, I deny the allegations being made and welcome the opportunity to fully resolve the matter."
