Administration seeks to improve Obamacare doc choice, costs


Faced with growing criticism that Obamacare offers little choice of doctors, the Obama administration is toying with implementing new requirements for healthcare plans.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued a proposed rule Friday offering improvements to Obamacare's marketplaces. If finalized, the rule's improvements would affect 2017 Obamacare plans, not the 2016 plans currently offered on the exchanges.

But one expert says the push to expand doctor choice in plans could affect some premiums.
