I don't know about the rest of you, but where I worked my employer would change the health insurance coverage every year - often times changing insurance companies. You never knew from year to year if your doctor or hospital would be in the new policy.

Thomas Frank: Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller called Obamacare "the most complex piece of legislation ever passed by the United States Congress".


A former Massachusette state health insurance official moaned about Obamacare "We took the most complex healthcare system on God's green earth, and made it 10 times more complex."

What do you means . . . . Scam . . . Junk Insurance ??

 

For the 30+ years that my husband and I were self employed, We always had INDIVIDUAL Coverage health insurance.  IT WAS GREAT.

$ 500 Deductible; 80/20 ; $ 150 copay for any ER anywhere in the country.         $ 150 prescription drug deductible then we paid a flat $ 25 for any Rx if greater than that amt.  And our choice of doctors and specialist were within the network.

 

When my husband was diagnosised with cancer, the policy performed above and beyond with 2nd opinions and consultations with some of the best cancer institution specialist in the country.  We paid that $25 for Rx that was over $4000 a month.  They supplied him with a scooter so that he could continue to work for as long as possible.  The Care Management team worked with me in getting an over-abundance of portable O2 so that he could participate in our daughters wedding - the last thing on his bucket list.

 

All courtesy of his Blue Cross/Blue Shield INDIVIDUAL plan.  I continued mine after his death, it was grandfathered under the ACA until I went on Medicare.

 

Was it expensive - of course, but not compared to our risk without it - it was a cost just like a mortgage or utility bill, that had to be covered because it was necessary and of top importance.  

 

Compared to what people are paying for today under the ACA especially if you get NO subsidy and feel the complete brunt of the premiums - what we paid in premiums compared to what we got - was an extreme bargain.

SOUNDS FAMILIAR! Joe Biden Pushes Obamacare 2.0, Says ‘If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep It’

 

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden touted the accomplishments of Obamacare this week; unveiling his new healthcare plan while promising Americans can “keep their private insurance” should they choose to.

 

Biden promoted his new plan online Monday; breaking with fellow Democrats like Bernie Sanders who seek to ban private health insurance options for every single American.

 

The Affordable Care Act was a historic achievement. 20 million Americans gained coverage. Over 100 million with pre-existing conditions finally got protection. We can’t tear it down.

“I give people the option,” Biden said. “If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it.”

“You get full coverage, and you can stay with your plan if you like it. You can stay with your employer-based plan, or you can move on. I think it’s the quickest, most reasonable, rational and best way to get to universal coverage,” he added.

 

“I understand the appeal of Medicare for All, but folks supporting it should be clear that it means getting rid of ObamaCare, and I’m not for that,” Biden concluded.

 

Senator Bernie Sanders offered a one-word answer when pressed on his controversial Medicare for All program last Thursday; confirming no one in America should be able to keep their private insurance.

 

“I’m a math teacher and I love polling data… Based on recent polling, Democratic voters, more than half of them prefer to keep their private health insurance. If Medicare for All was an option, would you give them that choice?” asked a member of the audience.

“Nope,” said Sanders.

Recent polling showed a major shake-up in the Democratic primary process this week, with Senator Elizabeth Warren surpassing Bernie Sanders for the second-place spot just behind former Vice President Joe Biden.

 

“The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that 26 percent of likely primary voters support Biden, while 19 percent support Warren. Trailing those two are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Bernie Sanders(I-Vt.), who are each backed by 13 percent,” reports The Hill.

 

“The only other contenders who receive support from more than 1 percent of voters are South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 7 percent, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke with 2 percent and former tech executive Andrew Yang with 2 percent,” adds the site.

 

 


The article you posted does tell us what Biden says, but by your comment you tell us that you do not understand the subject. The ACA never had anything to do with a person having to change their provider. If a person changed their provider it was because they wanted to, an insurance co forced them to so they could keep coverage, their provider dumped them, or dumped their insurance co.

Turns out lots of people had junk policies that didn't meet ACA standards so they had to be replaced. Fancy that, having to give up a piece of junk for better coverage. Boo-hoo. Smiley Happy


The GOPerLords who run the companies that sold those worthless insurance policies are outraged President Obama stopped their highly profitable scam and have ordered their minions to destroy PPACA so they ca nget back to redistributing income and wealth from the middle class to themselves.

 

For some reason the ones who were getting scammed object - could it be they cannot admit they fell for such an obvious con they must pretend it didn't happen?

 

Very likely - that's how most con men survive - their victims refuse to admit they got conned, and in this case they got conned AGAIN by voting for the ultimate con man, ToadPOTUS tRump.

 

They can't admit falling for that con either.

Yes, the correct line would have been "If you like your plan AND IT IS NOT RIPPING YOU OFF EVERY MONTH, you can keep it"
