COLUMBUS, GA -

"I had patients at Midtown Medical Center who told us they originally selected a plan where they thought Columbus Midtown would be their in network facility only to learn that their actual in network facility was many, many miles away," said Vice President of Operations Aspirion Health Resources, Suzie Bryan.

Bryan said it's situations such as these which pose problems with the current Obamacare in place.

“It's been financially difficult for hospitals to navigate all of the new different plans… and its been difficult for employers and providers to meet all of the changes and processes that the new laws required.”

Although Bryan said an alternative the unfortunate and somewhat costly situation she referred to, most consumers have access to healthcare under Obamacare, which is a positive.

“They have peace of mind when they go to the hospital that they'll be able to be seen and have some sort of coverage,” said Bryan.

But Bryan said, whatever the outcome holds for the halted GOP healthcare plan or for Obamacare, consumers issued must be solved.

“We just need to look at the challenges that the current law has and work together,” said Bryan.  “The legislature needs to work with the people in the community to know exactly what's happening with community healthcare and fix those together.”
