Letter: Understand Obamacare before complaining about Obamacare

doctor_stockI am tired of reading letters from people who have not educated themselves on Obamacare. Have we come to the point that all we do is complain instead of educating ourselves on the issue (“Friend has suffered under Obamacare,” May 18)? If the woman lost her primary-care doctor, she should have called the Healthcare Exchange immediately, and they would have switched her to another plan.

It happened to us last year and to a friend recently. The friend switched doctors (because hers dropped off of the plan) on the phone in less than 30 minutes. We switched last year because my husband’s cardiologist dropped off of our plan.

Does the law need work? Yes. Can some things be fixed? Yes. But we need to educate ourselves before we mouth off continually about the Affordable Care Act. Knowledge is power, and perhaps we need more of that.
