Affordable Care Act - Alternative Health Care Options?

Posted by mmiesse (My Page) on

Hello! Firstly, this may not be the best forum to use for this question, so if anybody knows of a better one I would love to be directed to it!

Next - maybe this IS the best place for this question so here goes:

I live in Arkansas (which I think subscribes to the national ACA marketplace). I typically only go to a 'regular' physician only for my lady doctor appointments. Past that, I go to a natural doctor - which has not been an accepted/insurable form of medicine in Arkansas.

With the new laws and insurance, is it possible I could find an insurance that covers some of this type of medicine?

IF NOT, does anybody know what the best alternative is? Should I just get a high deductible and go for that?

I am 26 so I'm not well versed in insurance, but I'm trying! Any assistance would be awesome!

Not sure if you are talking both doctors and meds. Do you take any prescriptions Now? If not why bother with the meds insurance.

RE: Affordable Care Act - Alternative Health Care Options?

I'm talking doctors mostly. Since I have to have health insurance I'd rather pay for something I might, possibly use as opposed to something I definitely won't use.

I do not currently take any prescriptions - but I occasionally take things for Lyme disease.
