Cheap, no-frills insurance that doesn't cover medication, maternity or mental health services will get the scalpel in 2014.
Know that health care plan you just signed up for? Don't get too attached.
The Affordable Care Act mandate most commonly known as Obamacare has some tight stipulations that, CNN says, are forcing health care companies to rip up most of their current plans and draft new ones that comply. According to a University of Chicago study, just about half of the individual health care plans currently on the market won't cut it once key provisions of the Affordable Care Act kick in next year.
A handful of existing plans will be grandfathered in if members have been enrolled in the plan since before the ACA passed in 2010, and the plan has maintained steady co-pay, deductible and coverage rates. But plans that don't match that description are just going to flat-out disappear in 2014 when rules requiring enhanced coverage go into effect.

That's the way RATS pimped it - no?
And this is the crap we get when we allow that b!tch from California to say what she said. Again, ammo provided by the left that the right did nothing about.
here let me refresh your memory
“we have to pass it so we can see what is in it”
I can’t wait for that b!tch to die. And I hope that when she does the govt takes all her wealth and distributes it.
Can anyone imagine the Founding Fathers putting up with this BS? This insurance fiasco is but one small drop in an ocean of intrusion. Look at what life has degenerated into in this so-called “Land of the Free.” Son of a bitch....
If the republicans hadn’t tried to kill the bill it could have been debated longer and the bad parts of it would have been removed. But the democrats were forced to pass it before the republicans took over congress.
This isn’t sarcasm. It’s my prediction of what the democrats will start saying and what their voters are already thinking.
Just got a letter today saying that Anthem is looking to meet the requirements of Obamacare by axing providers by Jan 1 2014. As a provider I am formulating a response.
My carrier is Anthem. I have a fine relationship with my GP and ENT. If they are “axed” by Anthem, I will cut separate deals with them and continue to use them.
Would this be before or after the Midterms?
