Dropped Health Insurance
10/23/2013 | Sasquatch

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

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.

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.

Yep. They could care less. Hey, they give us all one month every election cycle
and listen to our gibberish. That's enough to drive anyone crazy. We should know our place and STFU.

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.

They want you to lose your healthcare so you have go to them.

That is the whole idea.

Unfortunately, a lot of people are going to get hurt.

I'm sorry, Sas.

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.

Chrisian Healthcare Ministries

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.

I'm with you sasquatch, got a letter last week. Second time I have had my individual health care insurance terminated since the passage of Zerocare.

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.

‘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...

Ditto.

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.

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.

Teamster here. $600 surcharge to cover wife, deductible from $500 to $2500, max out of pocket from $2500 to $6500, premium increase $100/month, loss of prescription benefit until deduct met.

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 ;))

You've just experienced the FLAW in this entire ponzi scheme called Obamacare.

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.

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

The insurance companies - especially BCBS - are in on the 0DeathCare *plan*.

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!

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.

Good Times.

One thing which seems to come through these stories is that under Obamacare, it’s going to be nearly impossible to have a big family without getting government help. Who have big families and don’t seek government help? Conservatives, and particularly Christian conservatives. Does anybody think this is an accident? -

America Held Hostage On The Edge Of Constant Crisis
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3082962/posts

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.
