This is messed up!
So much for reduced medical costs that were supposed to accompany the "Affffffffffffffordable Health Care".... and the legislation that had to be passed so we could find out what was in it!
There's a lot I could say. The only way you are going to have it all the same in every state is to have a one-payer system. That means everybody follows the same rules. That's what Medicare does now for the elderly and disabled (and it is NOT free - you pay every month for Medicare). Ask everybody here how that's working for them. Medicare is very similar to Kaiser in CA. If you want something that doesn't fit their cog, you pay out-of-pocket. This practice was going on long before the Affordable Health Care Act.
