According to Natural News, not only are customers losing their insurance plans, but now, insurance companies are dropping physicians from coverage plans as well.
As reported by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ):
“UnitedHealth Group, Inc., the nation's largest provider of privately managed Medicare Advantage plans, has dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks - spurring protest from lawmakers and physician groups and leaving many elderly patients unsure about whether they need to switch plans to keep seeing their doctors.”
The paper said physicians in at least 10 states have received termination letters. Some of those letters have cited "significant changes and pressures in the health-care environment."
In addition, the notices inform doctors that they can appeal the decision within 30 days, but that means doctors and patients won't know for certain who is in, and who is out of, UnitedHealth's Medicare Advantage networks before open enrollment to switch Medicare plans ends on Dec. 7.
The insurer said its provider networks change constantly, and it expects its Medicare Advantage network "to be 85 percent to 90 percent of its current size by the end of 2014." But the company would not say how many providers are being curbed in individual states, or what criteria it is using to cut them
Company officials say they are making their decision based on financial concerns - concerns that are being influenced solely by the mandates contained in Obamacare. Officially, they say United Healthcare is taking the action to provide more value for its customers, but that is corporate-speak for, "We're making this move because we've been forced to do it."
"That's what's driving our actions," Austin Pittman, president of UnitedHealth's networks, told WSJ. "It's no secret that we are under substantial funding pressure from the federal government."

A panel of IT experts testified recently before a House committee to inform Americans that they should not be using the Healthcare.gov website, because the potential for loss of their personal identity and information is just too great.
Four experts testified before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, and collectively they cited a number of security flaws in the site which they attributed to the complexity of its 500 million lines of code and a hurried roll-out before the site was properly tested.
The Democrats knew all along that Obamacare would cause millions to lose health care coverage. Yet they continued to promote it with premeditated lies such as, "You can keep your current health plan if you like it" and "your health insurance costs will be lower than a phone bill."
"We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would [lose their existing coverage]," said House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer in a NationalReview.com article.
National Review goes on to report this astonishing exchange:
Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren't "misleading," Hoyer said, "I don't think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough… [it] should have been caveated with -- 'assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.'"
