Not all drugs or doctors covered.


o   Changing Health Plans, Changing Provider Networks: What They Mean for Consumers and How States Can Help Center on Health Insurance Reforms - Health Policy Institute, Georgetown University by Sabrina Corlette and Sally McCarty 


My comment:
I continue to feel that would be very helpful to consumers.  See my article published by Hearst Newspapers: CONSUMER SHOPPING SITES HELP YOU ENROLL IN OBAMACARE   I have a number of other suggestions for the Maryland Health Connection.


Health care prices in October rose 0.9% from Oct.'12 - smallest increase in more than 50 years.  

This is consistent with recent data.  The cost curve has been significantly declining over the last few years, and even more so since ACA.   Not certain if ACA is a factor but quite possible it is.  There are many features in ACA not so well known that can contribute to the decline.  

Share of privately insured women paying $0 out of pocket for oral contraceptives grew from 15 to 40%  

Thanks to the ACA, preventive care from birth control to checkups to cancer screenings is covered for free, without a copay, under every insurance plan.  

Impressive stats.
