Obama Care


President Obama,
My name is Rochelle and I signed up for the Obama Care Healthplan in April. I was looking forward to what this would mean to me and my health. After having this insurance for a couple of months now I realize I am paying for absolutely nothing.
I tried to make a wellness appoint and was told that I would need to pay in $5,000.00 to the office before my insurance would even kick in. I then learned that if I were to become sick and would need doctors care I would need to pay $100,000.00 before the insurance would take over!!

I am outraged by the fact that I am a working mother and tried to do the right thing by acquiring insurance (or to recieve a fine) and all this plan is doing is taking my money and providing me with no service., I pay over $100 a month to be told that in order to be seen by the doctor I have to pay the doctor's listed fees myself. What exactly is this supposed to be doing for me?

Lastly, I understand that what you are trying to do is help us as a Nation, yet, I think you need to understand anyone applying for this healthcare is applying because they have either been denied by the State or can not recieve any from their job. Meaning this seems like a GREAT oppurtunity until you are enrolled and you realize you are paying for a service that you are not being provided.

Thank you for your time,

Rochelle D. Colbert
