What Kimmel left out of the story is the fact that most people on ObamaCare — in California and the rest of the country — are in highly restrictive HMO-type plans that wouldn’t let them go the hospitals or doctors he used.

Kimmel’s wife gave birth at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, a top-rated hospital in California with, as he noted, very attentive nurses and an outstanding pediatric emergency team.

But only two ObamaCare plans include Cedars-Sinai in their provider networks — Blue Shield of California and Anthem Blue Cross. As the hospital website explains, only those enrolled in one of these two ObamaCare plans get “full coverage for care from Cedars-Sinai.”

Data from Covered California — the state-run ObamaCare exchange — show that of the 1.3 million enrollees statewide, only about half signed up with one of these two plans. The rest would likely find Cedars-Sinai — where a maternity room can cost $4,000 a day — well out of their price range.
