I have my much-derided "free colonoscopy" scheduled for the end of the month. Under my old plan with the big premium, a colonoscopy was a $4,000 out-of-pocket procedure.

I wouldn't have waited for the free one but to each their own.

I had a screening when I was in my early 40s...family history, cost less than $1000. Scheduled me for another one three years later but I made the mistake of going to a hospital and paid over 3K WITH INSURANCE.

But I found a lower cost gastroenterology center and it cost 1200 USD.

Of course, your mileage may vary. But don't write Obamacare off until you've made a thorough investigation.

I don't know why doctors don't like Obamacare, they whined about Medicare and they make more money now than ever.

It was a Republican idea for crying out loud.
