No Network

You are pregnant for the second time and need to start prenatal care soon. You had some difficulties in your first pregnancy, and you would like to see the obstetrician who took care of you last time. You trust her, and she is familiar with your case. But your employer has changed insurance companies, and your obstetrician is no longer “in network.” Seeing her will be very expensive.

THE GOOD NEWS IS that under national improved Medicare for All, there are NO NETWORKS. You can see any provider you like and not be forced to change practitioners — it’s your choice. There are no insurance companies to come between you and your doctor.
