My plan before Obamacare dissolved because it didn’t meet the ACA regulations. Signed up for a marketplace plan where MOST of my doctors were in the plan and it was less expensive than other more established insurers. The company that I would have wanted to joined decided to sideline itself from participating in New York until it could get a realistic handle on what it would cost doing business in the state. Fast forward a year and a half and the insurer that I was participating in dissolved. Only recently were many of my claims paid. My next insurer, in late August decided to dissolve. Tthis week, I received a letter from one of my doctors that he will no longer permit appointments with patients who are currently insured by my company beginning in late November. Luckily, most of my doctor appointments are scheduled in October.
Sooooo, thanks to Obamacare, I have had three insurers. Premiums have sky rocketed and I have been bounced from physician to physician. Come January, I have no idea which insurers will be offering plans in NY and I have no idea who my physicians might be. I am lucky though, bbecause some states have as few as a single insurer to chose from
Obama lied. Not that I believed him for a New York second....
I will say it again. Obamacare was inherently flawed from Day One and Obama knew it. He was warned that unless, well, young people signed up in significant numbers, the program would not work. Since the penalty for not joining was small, there was little incentive for younger Americans to join.
Obama knew it was flawed...big time. But he and the Democrats passed the legislation anyway.
I can’t wait to read Obama and Michelle’s $60 million memoirs so I can understand how he got away with hoodwinking us. Presently, I am reading Hillary’s book What Happened with an eye towards how identity politics colored her perspective and IMHO ruined her chance of getting elected.
I want to understand all of the moving pieces that affected how we got into this mess. Then, maybe once we understand how we got here, we can begin to find the light and compass that will put us on the road to recovery... I want affordable and assessable healthcare and I want my doctors as much as the next person. But as long as some will say they are happy with Obamacare, all I can say is you should rethink how you feel because what exists is unsustainable and the longer it goes unfixed, there is no doubt in my mind...those of us who need these plans will be suffering in the near future, if you aren’t suffering like me already....
