Even Slate magazine is starting to notice the Obamacare failure. This year's bad news, besides the failure of the non-profit coops and the news that many of them aren't even guaranteed, which is bad enough, is that PPOs are disappearing from the market. The Slate article concentrates on New York, but the same thing is happening in Texas. We're stuck in an HMO for 2016, which barely feels like coverage to me, considering that the time we're really going to want to depend on insurance is when we face something really scary, and that is exactly when I don't relish being confined to a puny network. But we've also applied to one of those non-insurance healthcare cost-sharing organizations, so we'll see how that goes.
