Proposed Limits in NY State

As states prepare to implement ObamaCare, they have to define their "essential benefits plan" for residents.

According to Dr. Susan Berry, "the state of New York has requested that annual doctor visit limits be substituted for lifetime and annual dollar limits in health care plans."

The law does not allow insurers to set a dollar cap on how much patients can receive per year.  Hence, the state of New York has requested the ability to instead limit number of doctor visits.

In other words, the government would decide whether or not you've seen the doctor too many times.

Just don't call it rationing.
