Surprise: Some People Liked Their Pre-Obamacare Insurance

You know, the plans that Obama and the Dems promised repeatedly that they could keep. Somehow, this story made it into publication by CNN

Before Obamacare, some liked their health care plans better

Stacey and Eddie Albert lead pretty healthy lives. She’s a nutritionist. He’s a personal trainer. They rarely go to the doctor, other than their annual physicals.

For years, they were covered by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. In 2013, they paid about $360 a month for a plan that met their needs.

That all changed the following year, when Obamacare took effect. Their premium shot up to around $650 a month for a policy that came with pediatric dental coverage and maternity services — benefits they didn’t use or want since they don’t have kids. They ended up dropping the plan after several months and even went a year without coverage for the first time in the decade they’ve been together, exactly the opposite of what Obamacare was supposed to do.

And this is what happened to millions and millions of people

Those skinny plans suited some Americans just fine. Many didn’t even know the limits of the pre-Obamacare plans because they never used enough services to become aware of them.

“They made the Affordable Care Act so ridiculously overbuilt that it’s killing people like me who pay for it,” said Tom Buxton, 59, of Littleton, Colorado. “I don’t need two doctor visits a year unless I want them. That should be my choice. I didn’t go to the doctor for five years.”

One size fits all

“The bottom line is the fact that the coverage of all these plans is basically the same for me,” he said. “However, the cost of Obamacare is substantially higher.”

How the heck did this make it through the Progressive censors at CNN?

    I had a very good policy that was supposed to take care of me for life. It was canceled by Obama and now I am stuck with Medicare, which sucks. Obama needs to be in jail.

    dave,

    Your con man-in-chief will be in jail soon enough. Or hanged.

    Jeff,
    Knew you would respond with something stupid. You don’t seem to understand that Obama and Hillary did a Watergate and no one is doing a thing. As to Trump, he is great, better than I anticipated.
