If a luxury item is by definition something you can do without, by targeting so-called “Cadillac” insurance plans to help pay for the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration is making it clear that it’s more concerned with limiting healthcare choices than it is with ensuring Americans have access to high-quality insurance.

The Affordable Care Act was sold to the public as an effective means of providing affordable health insurance to millions of Americans who currently do not have coverage, particularly the poorest members of our society. It turns out that the law will push more Americans into part-time jobs that are ineligible for employer-provided insurance, forcing them to choose between purchasing expensive coverage through an insurance exchange or forgoing insurance altogether and paying a fine.

As predicted, many insurers are set to raise premiums for health insurance policies as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) comes fully online next year. The high prices will be out of reach for many of the people the ACA was touted as helping, forcing consumers to choose between paying for budget-busting health insurance or forgoing coverage and paying a penalty.

The central promise of the ACA is that it will increase access to care for millions of Americans. However, because the ACA will also worsen an already chronic shortage of physicians, it is likely to make it harder, not easier, for Americans to obtain quality medical care.
