Obamacare Consumers Lean Toward Price Over Doctor Choice

Bloomberg – Consumers shopping on the Obamacare exchanges are thriftier than the general public, with more picking health plans based on price rather than their choice of doctors, a study found. While the general public prefers more expensive plans that cover a broader range of doctors and hospitals, 54 percent of those who are uninsured or who buy their own coverage select plans that cost less, even if they have less say in providers, the Kaiser Family Foundation found in a poll released today. “The individual market has always been more sensitive to costs,” Dan Mendelson, chief executive officer of the Washington-based consultant Avalere Health, said in a telephone interview. As millions of Americans join health plans created through the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare, consumers, insurers and providers are paying attention to the balance between cost and coverage.
