The Glories of Obamacare Continue to Shine

That grandfathered plan I have had since the enactment of this monstrosity we call Obamacare is being canceled next year. The company just doesn't want to offer it any longer, though I was promised that 'if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.' They're offering a similar plan, with the much-smaller network associated with Obamacare, for only 122% of the price of my current plan.

Of course, "you should know changing your health care plan will cause you to lose your grandfathered status -- and under the health care law, you can't get it back."

So, I have the option of changing my plan and losing that status, or having the plan canceled out from under me and replaced with a much more expensive one that isn't nearly as good.

UPDATE: I should add that this plan has more or less doubled in price since 2010 already. At this point, I'd be paying nearly three times the original rate for less access to health care.

Maybe this monster worked for somebody, but from my perspective Obama's signature legislative accomplishment has been an unmitigated disaster.

....or you could simply say go to hell to the whole mess like I did.
I do not buy insurance and only negotiate a cash price when I go to see a doctor.

The Federal Govt WILL NOT get between my doctor and myself. I can negotiate my own contract. PERIOD.

I'm not a serf on their health care plantation. I'm free.

Lose weight, hike miles, get healthy, stay out of the healthcare Matrix or die trying.

I have written to my congressman hundreds of times asking when the law would be repealed?
or how I can get out of it. He has given up replying to me.
So the way I look at it, If he can ignore me, I can ignore the federal gov't law.
The more people who ignore it, the better. I'm hoping they will repeal, just like when prohibition was repealed. I'm not a sheep, and I'm extremely determined to not obey.

Also, read Dad29 complaints about Obamacare. They are extensive.

I told people that it was going to be a steaming pile, and now they don't say anything around me about it.

Grim, and it does not help when Obamacare is designed to create Jobs by sticking it to the rest of us.

Obamacare: The unintended consequence of creating millions of good-paying healthcare jobs.

........Some estimates have suggested that America's unnecessary health care spending and care tops 30 percent. The United States was ranked 11th out of 11 nations on health care efficiency by the Commonwealth Fund, and peer countries like Switzerland spend one-third less on health care as a share of GDP and 50 percent more on social services--like disability benefits and supportive housing--that experts increasingly say are linked with good health.........

Obamacare Delenda Est!

Heh. It's created jobs in health care by destroying jobs everywhere else. All the full time jobs got converted to part time jobs to avoid O-care requirements.

So how many new health care jobs did it really create? Between the high deductibles and the part-time pay, nobody can afford to use it.

I would comment on this, but the boiling point of my blood would be exceeded.

I just had my third plan cancelled. The carrier is no longer going to offer solo-buyer plans. At this point I'm seriously considering joining one of the mutual assurance groups. None of my physicians or dentists accept my current policy anyway, so I've been paying out-of-pocket just like I did before 2010. And have been getting nice quiet cash discounts, which helps some.

Witness the power of evil, it is great isn't it. Getting humans to destroy their own nest and future is quite an accomplishment. After all, destroying things is easy, getting people to destroy themselves... now that is an Art.
