Seems some of Chicago’s largest hospitals have decided the honeymoon’s over with their town’s golden-boy.
University of Chicago Medical Center and Rush University Medical Center both said they don’t plan to be in network for any Obamacare marketplace plans next year.
The change means patients with doctors at those hospitals will either need to find a plan off the marketplace, and lose Obamacare subsides, or find a new doctor.
Northwestern Memorial Hospital said it will also be out of the marketplace, but will have exceptions for some of its partner hospitals.
Six co-op “exchanges” still running out of 23 tries… if that’s “success,” I hate to think of what they’d call a “failure!”
