Q: Can I keep my current doctors under the new health care reform, Affordable Care Act / Obamacare?
The answers depends on what insurance plan you have.
- If your health insurance is through your employer or company plan, and you plan to keep the same insurance plan, then shouldn’t be any problems. You can keep your current doctor.
- If your employer or company changes plans, or drops its health insurance plan or the plan is considered unaffordable and insufficient under Affordable Care Act, you might have a problem keeping your current doctor. It depends on the plan you choose. It is important to check the insurance plan to see if your current doctor belongs to the network.
- If you already have Medicaid, and plan to keep your Medicaid insurance coverage, then you can keep your current doctor.
- If you have Medicare, then you can keep your doctor under the new Affordable Care Act.
