U.S. News and World Reports (fairly reputable) says:

Top Hospitals Opt Out of Obamacare
http://health.usnews.com/health-news/hospital-of-tomorrow/ar...

The Owebama Administration has been claiming that insurance companies will be competing for your dollars under the Affordable Care Act, but apparently they haven't surveyed the nation's top hospitals.

Americans who sign up for OwebamaKare will be getting a big surprise if they expect to access premium health care that may have been previously covered under their personal policies. Most of the top hospitals will accept insurance from just one or two companies operating under OwebamaKare.

"This doesn't surprise me," said Gail Wilensky, Medicare advisor for the second Bush Administration and senior fellow for Project HOPE. "There has been an incredible amount of focus on the premium cost and subsidy, and precious little focus on what you get for your money."

I read in a comment section that it's illegal under OwebamaKare to go out of the country for treatment.

America...land of the free, home of the stupid.
