From the New York Times no less! When you offer low premiums, generally there is a higher deductible involved. This is nothing new, but the grand marketing campaign that is the Obama administration hid – on purpose – the deductibles associated with insurance policies on the federal exchange … until two weeks before the deadline.
Really? I just don’t know what to say anymore. Obamacare architect Zeke Emanuel said you can have your doctor, and nobody is stopping you from paying more to have your doctor. (Yet.)
If you ran a business – and yes, a physician’s office is a business – would you join into a program that requires you provide services, but does not guaranty you’d get paid? That’s what physicians and other health care providers are learning when it comes to insureds who fall behind on their premium payments.
Critics fought the federal health care legislation really hard. At some point, the clock can not be turned back. I’m not saying we can’t eventually get rid of this stupid law, it’s just that we can’t delay it – delay anything – and expect the issue to be resolved in 34 days. Not. Gonna. Happen.
Next on James O’Keefe Exposes the Left. Christopher Tarango currently works for Enroll America, a “nonpartisan” 501(c)(3) organization who has an advertised single mission “to maximize the number of uninsured Americans who enroll in health coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act.” That group has access to personal information (name, address, phone and email) of thousands of people who may be interested in, or sign up for, Obamacare.
On Oct. 30, I made the assumption Congress – since they are on an employer-based plan – would not have to sign up on an Obamacare website because of the employer mandate delay. I was incorrect, they do have to sign up online for a plan now, but we now know why they are not complaining about the process or the prices.
Oh no you don’t Mr. President. Republicans had absolutely nothing to do with the ‘problems’ you’re having with the rollout of this monstrosity. He certainly has the habit of placing blame elsewhere does he not?
I honestly do feel sorry for this woman, but when something seems too good to be true – especially when it involves the federal government – it’s too good to be true. Jessica Sanford’s monthly premium when from $169, to $198, to $280, to $324 with a high deductible. Then she found out she did not qualify for a federal tax credit.
Well, not exactly heads, but at least one head. Read more
The major premise behind Obamacare (at least as sold to the American public) was that some 40 million Americans did not have health insurance (notice I didn’t say health care), and something needed to be done to fix that situation. That was some three and a half years ago. Flash forward to today. Read more
