ObamaCare To Begin Automatically Canceling Private Health Insurance Policies

ObamaCare To Begin Automatically Canceling Private Health Insurance Policies
May 30, 2013
Remember how Obama said if you liked your healthcare plan you could keep your healthcare plan? Yeah? Well, never mind. He didn’t really mean it. Start watching your mail because within the next few months ObamaCare is going to start automatically canceling private healthcare policies – whether you like it or not.
What Obama really meant to say was – you can keep your own individual healthcare policy as long as it meets my approval. And under Obamacare, if your policy doesn’t meet his federal requirements you’re not going to have any say in the matter – your insurer will automatically cancel your policy.
Ostensibly, the federal minimum insurance requirements are meant to protect consumers with a limit of $6,400 for copayments and out-of-pocket expenses. If your current policy doesn’t provide this coverage then your provider will be expected to change your policy so it’s compliant – never mind the fact that you can’t afford to pay for the additional coverage.
“You’re going to be forcibly upgraded,” said Bob Laszewski, a health care industry consultant. “It’s like showing up at the airline counter and being told, ‘You have no choice, $300 please. You’re getting a first-class ticket, why are you complaining?’”

Let me explain healthcare insurance as it is in the NOW. My wife had to pick the family healthcare where she works due to my stroke. By law she had to get it within 30 days for precondition reasons. She works as an assistant cook at an elementary school. The cost in January 2013 when she applied was $535 a month for herself and husband and 1 child and does not include dental or eyecare. The deductible is over $2000 so the family has to spend out of pocket $2000 a year before the insurance pays ANYTHING. It boils down to the need of a disaster to recoup any of the monthly cost. She was just informed the cost of the same plan beginning in September is rising to $750 a month with the deductible being over $4000 a year. So in September when school starts her monthly wages and ALL of it go toward Obamacare. BUT WAIT! First she has to PAY $39 a month to work there at the school. Socialist medicine ONLY works for those that DON'T WORK! The pilgrims learned that socialism does not work because they almost starved until the earthquake happened! The earthquake was caused by the pilgrims themselves when they pulled their head out of their ASS and went back to work!

So the bottom line is that us hard working people that have been with the same job for many years ..are screwed... Who the hell let this law go through?....and Obama is here to help us???....Just because he showed up at the Jersey Shore....which I think sucks that nothing has been mentioned about the Rockaways in NY....they also had issues with "Sandy" and lost their homes or got floated....But..."I figured this out"...the reason they emphasize on the Jersey shore, and not the Rockaways is because they make money with the Jersey Shore. The Rockaways mean nothing to them because there is no money coming in....So how the hell did we let this "obamacare" go into effect?.. This is a perfect example has why voting means nothing to is all fixed....The poor get poorer, and the rich get richer..
