When it comes to the federal health care law, there’s a burning question on most people’s minds -- “Can I keep my doctor?”
For many people the answer is yes.
But it’s important to realize that you might need to make changes to keep your favorite physician.
Under Obamacare, many doctors’ networks are getting smaller.
In a narrow network, patients have fewer medical providers to choose from. The idea is that expensive doctors and hospitals are cut out of the network and this in turn brings down the cost of providing care and, hence, lowers the cost of insurance.
But that means patients choosing a new insurance policy may find their doctor or hospital is no longer in that insurer’s network.
