So there is nothing for doctors to magically ride in from the ether and appear at the non-existent clinics for Obamacare enrollees.

ConsumerWatch: Some Covered California Patients Say They Can’t See A Doctor

While open enrollment for coverage under the Affordable Care Act is closed, many of the newly insured are finding they can’t find doctors, landing them into a state described as “medical homelessness.”

Rotacare, a free clinic for the uninsured in Mountain View, is dealing with the problem firsthand.

Mirella Nguyen works at the clinic said staffers dutifully helped uninsured clients sign up for Obamacare so they would no longer need the free clinic.

But months later, the clinic’s former patients are coming back to the clinic begging for help. “They’re coming back to us now and saying I can’t find a doctor, “said Nguyen.

Thinn Ong was thrilled to qualify for a subsidy on the health care exchange. She is paying $200 a month in premiums. But the single mother of two is asking, what for?

“Yeah, I sign it. I got it. But where’s my doctor? Who’s my doctor? I don’t know,” said a frustrated Ong.

Nguyen said the newly insured patients checked the physicians’ lists they were provided and were told they weren’t accepting new patients or they did not participate in the plan.

What? You mean the Democartic Party over-promised and under-delivered? Say it ain’t so.

    I’m shocked – shocked I tell ya…….
    Mostly I feel for those who believed that BS and now the children are suffering for it. Not so much the adults – they should have known better!

    Well, not everyone understands “There Ain’t No Such Thing As a Free Lunch”. The public acceptance of Obamacare….and later, single-payer healthcare, hinges upon this.
    As is now, people are learning “You get what you pay for.” Pay for nothing, get nothing.

    All together now:
    1. The easy part of initiating a medical plan is the rollout.
    2. They royally messed up the rollout.
    3. Guess what’s next.
