(NaturalNews) As a whole, the American healthcare system has been spiraling out of control for years now and is currently responsible for 780,000 or more deaths annually. According to statistics obtained from Gary Null in the book Death by Medicine, these healthcare deaths include approximately 106,000 due to adverse drug reactions, 98,000 from medical error, 115,000 from bedsores, 88,000 from infection, 108,800 from malnutrition and 32,000 from surgery error. These are just some of the statistics on record. Sadly, there are many new problems on the rise in America's healthcare system, unraveling before people's eyes thanks to the Affordable Care Act. One of them is that patients are being denied needed surgery because they are "out of network." More on this below:

Obamacare welcomes new problems into America's dying healthcare system

The philosophies of Western medicine are a dying facade, so when Obamacare was paraded in to save the day, slapping on its mandates, you knew that something was being arranged. That is control. Under Obamacare, Americans are further herded into a system that is practically run by the pharmaceutical industry's best interest (which aggregates 106,000 annual deaths of its own based on adverse drug reaction statistics.)

Furthermore, these new government regulations have caused people's previous insurance premiums to spike, forcing them into a government-approved pool of insurers and services.

Amidst the new mandates spawn new problems within the Western medical system. These problems include a dependent populace, which includes a generation of sheep who can remain babied on their parent's health insurance plan until age 26. (Note, not all young people are going in this dependent direction.)

Other problems include rationed care and fewer doctors for growing medical demands.
Along with that comes a new slew of red tape, which delays people's treatments, confusing them in a maze of doctors, insurance plans and government rules.

Covered California man denied back surgery as rationed Obamacare has labeled him "out of network"

A new case from California involves a mechanic who is being denied much needed back surgery. Hardly able to walk, due to the pain, the man has been searching for a surgeon who can accept him under his new affordable care plan. But the insurance coverage that he switched to under Obamacare is denying him back surgery because he is "out of network."

"We get this coverage and go to the best doctor to fix Chris, and they tell us we're out of network," said his wife, Tammy.

The Sonora man says, "I can't sleep on my back. I roll around all night, because I can't lay flat. I can't lay anywhere for more than five, 10 minutes."

The worst part is that his new Covered California plan is giving him few options. It's practically become a full time job for Chris to find a surgeon who can fix his back, and he still can't get help.

In 2013, Chris and his wife were disheartened to learn that their previous insurance plan had gone up. This forced them to transition from their Blue Cross Plan over to a Blue Cross Covered California Obamacare plan. Trying to avoid skyrocketing premiums, they were herded into the government health exchange, but what they learned was that their provider network is much smaller than it was before.

When his wife finally located an "in-network doctor," the problems only continued. Even though the doctor they found was listed as a Blue Cross in-network care provider, Chris still could not get the treatment that he needed. The doctor said he wasn't able to see patients with insurance from Covered California.

"It's like we're a second-class citizen," said Chris's wife. "We can't get the coverage we need."

Chris, who is not alone, said, "I'm [just] going to be in pain. I can't find nobody to do it."
