nvisaged is impossible. Health care can be 1. universal (available to all), or selective (available to some) 2. comprehensive (covers all conditions at any age), or rationed (like the UK), and 3, affordable or prohibitively expensive.
But health care cannot be universal, comprehensive and affordable. If it is universal and comprehensive, it is prohibitively expensive and unaffordable. If it is universal and affordable, services must be rationed. If it is comprehensive and affordable, it can only be affordable for those who can afford it, and is therefore not universal.
The logical conclusion is that Obamacare as designed is fundamentally flawed.
