The affordable component of the so-called Affordable Care Act may not be all that affordable after all, as many of the most sickly patients covered under the Obama scheme will still likely have to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket for their treatments, according to new reports. In California, for instance, cancer patients could be required to pay up to 30 percent of the costs associated with chemotherapy drugs and other conventional treatments, and the situation could be much the same in many other states as Obamacare comes into effect next January.
The primary reason for this, say industry analysts, is that many more people with debilitating diseases who are currently uninsured will suddenly have Obamacare coverage at the beginning of next year, and the money to pay for this massive influx of people with preexisting health conditions has to come from somewhere. In other words, when the other shoe finally drops, insurers will be forced to either drastically increase premiums across the board, or simply charge patients high deductibles and copays for expensive medicines.
