[dropcap]O[/dropcap]bamacare alternatives?

One fact that became apparent under Obamacare: Just because you have health insurance doesn’t mean you can get affordable health care. Millions of doctors and patients have quietly found new alternatives outside the traditional insurance system. Sunday on Full Measure, we’ll take a look at some of the options.
