Skip to comments.Dropped Health Insurance
Posted on 10/23/2013 5:37:35 PM PDT by sasquatch
We've been advised that our medical coverage will be dropped at the end of the year. We've paid for our own coverage for about the last 10 years. Others out there? It'd be interesting to send a list to the a$$holes in DC describing the extent of the problem. thx
You can thank Barbara Boxhead and Dianne Frankenfeinstein for that.

They know. They don't care. You are pissing into the wind expecting any of them to give a damn. Learn your place peasant and do as your betters tell you to do.
Now available: Prices for every insurance plan offered on Healthcare.gov (GET IN HERE!)
I’m sorry. I know it doesn’t help, but you are not alone. I’m scared we may get that letter soon too, very scared.
Now that we know what’s in the bill, HOW DO WE KILL IT?
Oh, too late.
Don’t be sorry; be active.Better, proactive.
I meant to say this on a similar thread today, but let me say it here. I think it is important that you call your elected reps and tell them what has happened to you. And how you feel about it. Maybe call the WH too, be nice to the ladies who answer the comment line, it’s really not their fault.
That is the whole idea.
Unfortunately, a lot of people are going to get hurt.
There were several threads about three existing Christian Health Ministries that are a legal alternative to Obamacare. I can't find the threads, but I did look at one of them and still have the link.
Does anyone have a link to any of the articles where this was discussed?
I got a similar letter. Bad news / good news. The bad was that my policy was cancelled as it did not meet the requirements of ObamaCare.
The good news? There is a new policy for which I qualify and it has a 4000dlr higher deductible(now 6500dlrs total) BUT as a 63 year old man, I now have maternity coverage.
Call your congresscritter.
I pay almost $1,400 a month for wife and myself. I expect an increase of at least $600 a month and a four fold increase in my deductible (judging from friends who have also been terminated).
It's a travesty in my opinion.
Confiscating the kulaks’ seed corn to finance the Great Leap Forward, comrades.
I was lucky, get to keep my plan till 8-1-14, after that ??? my plan is illegal as of august 1st 2014. They didn’t say it would be canceled, but i can read between the lines.
‘as a 63 year old man, I now have maternity coverage.’
To be a good citizen and to err on the side of safety, you should probably go on the pill...
If yours or anyone’s plan did not have all the extra benefits mandated by Obamacare (maternity, counseling, etc.), then it’s going to be canceled, period.
Expect to have to show evidence of insurability even if you go with the same provider who carried your previous plan.
I’m staying with Blue Cross, but have to show insurability, even though I’ve had Blue Cross for decades.
And tell them what happened.
BTW, I have already complained about it to my Senators and Congressman.
Probably should do so weekly just so they get the point.
200,000 were dropped here in NYS. These are all Medicaid and Family care clients. In other words...totally subsidized folks.
I’ve been dropped by my plan through Healthnet. Oregon has its own exchange. I’ve looked a little, but I’m contemplating just becoming a Refusenik. If I get sick with something critical, so be it.
Way to go Hoffa jr.
I received our cancellation notice last week.
The anxiety level is high in our household.
Same boat here.
My company is keeping us in the dark too.
Claimed that they would let us know “if” they came up with something “sometime” in November maybe.
See? Doesn’t Barry know what’s better for you and what you really need? You were being a “dead beat” expecting to get a policy leaving that out and letting the hospitals/doctors holding the bag for your maternity care. (/s ;))
Up to 16 million people are being sent letters by their insurance company informing them that their policy is being discontinued because it does not meet with the standards or qualifications prescribed by the obamacare law. Those loosing their insurance are finding that the obamacare insurance is considerably more expensive and has a very high deductible.
None of these people ever expected what they had in the way of insurance to be eradicated. In FACT they were promised "if you like your insurance you can keep it"
In the immortal words of Ronald Reagan.. "trust but verify". Too many BELIEVED OBAMA back in 2009 and decided to trust WITHOUT VERIFYING.
My son has a cancellation letter from BCBSTX effective Dec 31st. The letter states that insurance from the Texas High Risk Pool will no longer be needed because preexisting conditions will be covered under the Affordable Care Act. Governor Perry did not believe that Obamacare would work, yet our state immediately drops a program that has helped countless Texans. I think I am madder at Perry than I am at President Obama.
Dittos here, cancelled effective last day of 2013.
I was also dropped. It looks like at least $1.9M are being dropped, more likely close to 14M. I am trying to summarize it on my blog: http://www.4yourcountry.org/2013/10/summary-of-policies-being-canceled-because-of-aca.html also, if you are looking for a new policy dont go to the exchange, go to www.ehealthinsurance.com see: http://www.4yourcountry.org/2013/10/you-dont-have-to-buy-on-the-exchange.html
Don't be mad at Perry unless you want 0Care, or think it will "work". He stopped the Medicaid expansion, unlike Jan Brewer, John Kashich and most Dim Govs.
Our son’s BCBS was similarly cancelled. Did not cover birth control and maternity coverage as demanded by the regime. Absolutely FURIOUS here!
Good point. I don't want to be rushed off to Aunt Betty's 500 miles away and be the point of hushed whispers at Thanksgiving dinner.
Don’t worry, the Liberal Politicians will blame the Health Insurance Companies so we can finally live the dream of Single Payer Socialized Health Care.
It’s all going to plan.
You're not an Exempted Elite.
So EAT IT. Or ELSE.
Great graphics! Liberty is a strong brew, and the only known antidote for the “Need to Feed” virus.
Lost my employment of 10 years in February because the owner saw the CommieCare mess coming and decided to just retire and close shop. Wife and about 15 others in her office received the boot last Monday, all due to CommieCare.
>> Others out there?
One thing which seems to come through these stories is that under Obamacare, its going to be nearly impossible to have a big family without getting government help. Who have big families and dont seek government help? Conservatives, and particularly Christian conservatives. Does anybody think this is an accident? -
Ping for later
Hmmmmm, the gravy could make you forget your problems... :)
Here are 219,000 people being dropped:
The intent was to destroy the medical system.
They did it.
America Held Hostage On The Edge Of Constant Crisis
Are we merely being acclimated to the idea of incessant crisis? Are we learning to become apathetic at the edge of the chasm? Or, are we being driven to madness, mass-madness, by a concert of elitist interrogators seeking our acquiescence?
Again, the central purpose of torture is to acquire consent. Not just extorted consent, but voluntary consent. It is not enough for the torturer to force the subject to obey, he wants the subject to EMBRACE his servitude. To gladly abandon all hope. To see his captor as his only salvation.
