Cancer-Striken GOP Sen. Tom Coburn Loses His Cancer Doctor Because of Obamacare…
Luckily for Coburn he has the ability to pay out of pocket to see his cancer specialist, most Americans aren’t so lucky.
Cancer-stricken Sen. Tom Coburn revealed Tuesday that his health insurance under Obamacare doesn’t cover his oncologist, but said he still is receiving excellent care.
“I’m doing well from a health standpoint, got great docs,” Coburn said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday when asked about his health. “Fortunately – even though my new coverage won’t cover my specialist – I’m going to have great care and I have a great prognosis.”
The Oklahoma Republican’s spokesman confirmed to POLITICO that since the senator enrolled in his health insurance plan under Obamacare, his coverage has been reduced and he lost coverage for his cancer specialist. Coburn will continue to pay out of his own pocket and see the oncologist, his office said.
Coburn made public in November that he had been diagnosed with a recurrence of prostate cancer. He also had prostate cancer surgery in 2011 and has survived colon cancer and melanoma. He also announced earlier this month he would not serve out his full Senate term, but denied it had to do with his health.
Perhaps this may hit close enough to home in DC that it might convince politicians that even they may not be immune to a broken nationalized healthcare system.
