Horrible Insurance Provider: www.CareSource.com
So, this is how Obamacare (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) will be demolished:
I have CareSource health/dental/vision silver plan. I need to go to said dentist because of bad tooth. I do what any techie would do, and go to their website and use "Find a Doctor" tool to find dentists. Simple.
I then call the first dentist on the list: jeffreytallendds.com/ ... They no longer take CareSource because CareSource hasn't paid their Effing bills since January 1! Well bugger.
The next 2 places I call explain they they simply don't take CareSource. They're both on the list, but nope, they're private pay. And one said 'We only take good insurance'. Well, fuck you too, Gentle Dentist at 1121 W 2nd St Bloomington, IN .
I call next dentist: http://www.bloomingtonfamilydental.com/ . They never heard of CareSource, yet they are on my list of approved providers. I set up appointment yesterday. Got call today, they are *NOT* part of CareSource.
On phone now with CareShit, telling that they need to find me a dentist, and their list of "approved providers" is nothing such! The 3 the lady at CareShit gave me ... surprise surprise... DON'T TAKE CARESOURCE.
So how many other "doctors" are on the list that aren't really plan providers? No bloody clue. My guess is some brainiac scraped the yellow pages and dumped all doctors in their "provider directory".
So.. back to Obamacare. Sure, PPACA can offer insurance. Good luck collecting on it and using it. And worse yet, the law requires health insurance. It put no onus on creating shell companies to "sell" health insurance that has no providers that will take it.
And Us individuals' answer is to sue said providers for not providing their contractual obligations... but we through the Marketplace are by definition are without employee insurance, and most likely poor. So, we are screwed as well by the lack of being made whole.
And that's how Obamacare can die.
