Ohioans are finding out some problems with the Affordable Care Act are affecting their pocketbook.
The Ohio Department of Insurance has taken numerous complaints about whether their doctors are in or out of network.
Case in point, a C
man called his health insurance provider to find out if the hospital he was taking his wife to for treatment was covered by his insurance company.
He was told it was only to find out later it wasn't and now he was facing a large hospital bill.
The new rules concerning network transparency could be in effect by later this year.
