It's not just veterans at VA hospitals who are having trouble finding care. One young Marine veteran in California can't find a doctor who will accept his Anthem Blue Cross insurance plan he purchased through Covered California, the state's Obamacare exchange. KPIX-TV reports:

The Marine, named Kyle, says he was on the phone for two hours with Anthem to find a doctor within a 20-mile radius, with no luck.

"Finally a supervisor said, 'Sir, we have to go. we have other people to help,'" Kyle told KPIX. "And [they] advised me I need to cancel my plan."
