Arizonans finding fewer choices on ACA exchange

PHOENIX - Some Arizonans who have signed up for insurance through the Affordable Care Act health exchange are finding they have fewer provider options.

The Arizona Republic reports ( people from Phoenix to Tucson say signing up for so-called narrow networks has left them with a limited number of choices for primary-care, specialists, labs and clinics.

Residents in rural areas on the cheaper plan have found the closest in-network doctor is hundreds of miles away.

Insurers say enrollees on the narrow-network plan get little or no coverage if they go outside the plan's network.

But in return, subscribers get lower rates than what they would pay in a broader network.

But the limited networks have led to confusion for people who have used brokers or private insurers in the past.
