Seattle Children’s Hospital filed suit against Washington State’s Office of the Insurance Commissioner this week, after Obamacare implementation caused the hospital to be cut from four of the six insurance plans offered by the Washington Health Benefit Exchange.

As millions lose their insurance nation wide and are forced into plans with significantly higher premiums, the reality of rationed care, initially denied by adamant supporters of the bill, has now hit the country’s most vulnerable, with doctors at Seattle Children’s Hospital speaking out.

“There becomes a point when if you start denying access to care, that you can hurt children and children’s health and that’s what we believe is at risk here,” Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Dr. Sandy Melzer said.

Although the hospital was included in almost every health plan from the state’s commercial market originally, Group Health Cooperative and Community Health Plan of Washington will now be the only providers including Seattle Children’s. According to the lawsuit filed in King County Superior Court, the legal obligation to provide access to “essential community providers” has been breached.

Those enrolled in one of the five insurance plans that excludes Seattle Children’s who still want the hospital’s care will likely be forced to pay much higher cost-sharing amounts, an impossibility to the almost 50 million American’s attempting to rise above the poverty line.

“The notion that a major insurance plan is going to exclude us from their network is truly precedent-setting and represents a new level of degradation in children’s access to care,” Melzer told the Seattle Times.

Local resident Anne Guadagno is afraid her two young granddaughters will lose their favorite doctor like many others already have, despite President Obama’s promise that everyone would be able to keep their doctors.

“I would want my grandchildren to have the doctor they’ve become accustomed to and are comfortable with. A child that’s been with a certain doctor and nurse and an office needs to stay there,” Guadagno told King 5 News.

With a healthcare website only able to sign up 6 people in its first day, “inevitable” healthcare rationing, millions more set to lose their current insurance and an impending shortage of doctors, the future of the Affordable Care Act appears to be anything but affordable for millions of children and adults alike.
