TX doctors, hospitals don't know if they're in or out of Obamacare plans
As consumers weigh coverage options available in the newly launched federal health insurance marketplace, three of the largest medical associations in Texas have raised concerns about the uncertainty of provider networks offered by health plans in the marketplace. The Affordable Care Act requires most people to carry health insurance beginning in 2014.
