It might have been the type of plan you had. For example, a provider can accept our PPO plans and not our HMO plans or vice versa if they choose to.
But it would still go by the product type...if our provider takes group plan HMO, he/she will take direct pay HMO and HMO plans through our connector (exchange). There's no way to opt of of how the mbr purchases their plan. Same for "obamacare" if the provider takes that network they would have to take the one the person purchased.
Can we just please go forward and stop calling them Obamacare plans. It's driving me nuts. There is no "obamacare insurance company" at 101 Main Street.

As for places not accepting "obamacare plans" it has nothing to do with "obamacare. " if someone signed up for insurance and chose united healthcare and the doc office said they don't take united healthcare, it means they never have. It didn't just change because of "obamacare."
Wow. Combine this with a minimum wage hike and just think how many jobs we can lose.
CBO nearly triples estimate of working hours lost by 2021 due to Affordable Care ActA historically high number of people will be locked out of the workforce by 2021, according to a report by the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.
President Barack Obama's signature health-care law will contribute to this phenomenon, the CBO said, citing new estimates that the Affordable Care Act will cause a larger-than-expected reduction in working hours—eliminating the equivalent of about 2.3 million workers in 2021.
In 2011, the CBO estimated the law would cause a reduction of about 800,000 full-time equivalent workers.
"CBO estimates that the ACA will reduce the total number of hours worked, on net, by about 1.5 to 2 percent during the period from 2017 to 2024, almost entirely because workers will choose to supply less labor—given the new taxes and other incentives they will face and the financial benefits some will receive," said the report.
"The reduction in CBO's projections of hours worked represents a decline in the number of full-time-equivalent workers of about 2.0 million in 2017, rising to about 2.5 million in 2024," it added.
The CBO estimated last year that 7 million people would sign up for health insurance through Obamacare in 2014, but computer problems have now lowered their estimate by a million, The Wall Street Journal reported.
