A group of politically active physicians and surgeons is issuing a warning to millions of patients nationwide: Stay away from the exchanges.
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons blasted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s new exchanges — which launched in October — saying they “destroy privacy” for consumers and simply aren’t safe.
AAPS’s attack didn’t stop at privacy issues. They included the health plans themselves.
“People who do manage to sign up for a plan also need to be wary about the plan itself. If the exchange miscalculated your subsidy, you could receive a demand from the IRS to pay it back even though the insurer received it and you didn’t.”
