New York State Seeks to Limit Doctor Visits for 'Benchmark' ObamaCare Plan
You do realize that most insurance companies have limits on how many doctor visits they will pay for each year, right?
States are in charge of making decisions for their own state markets under Obamacare? Fascinating!
All that rhetoric about "federal takeovers" must be severely misleading!
Yep, sounds like the feds are giving states the flexibility to figure out what will work best for them.

Except to say they don't want to be part of the program.
Or can they ?
States can sit back and do nothing, if they wish. Their citizens still get access to federally-refereed markets if the state doesn't have functioning markets. But the state certainly doesn't have to do anything it doesn't want to.
It's all just another spike in the heart of federalism. The founders are rolling in their graves.
States can sit back and do nothing and the Federal Government still gets to ram ACA down their throats.
