Sen. Coburn Loses His Cancer Doctor Due to Obamacare


Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) who is stepping down at the end of the year due to his battle with cancer revealed Tuesday that his health insurance under Obamacare doesn’t cover his oncologist, but said he still is receiving excellent care.

Like all members of Congress, Coburn now receives his federal health coverage through the D.C. ObamaCare exchange.

“I’m doing well from a health standpoint, got great docs,” Coburn said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe 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.”
