you "bush'd" that one up!
This is a fantastic waste of money; full-time college kids opt to recieve health insurance through their schools. Student health insurance is defined by the affordable care act as a completely separate type of individual insurance policy.
I find this to be really tacky, low-down and hard to believe. Having rallies and parties to convince students that health care is bad for them?
Obama didn't lie.
There's only a small percentage of policies being dropped and the insurance companies decided to do that, not Obama.
The Griffins, who live near Philadelphia, pay $770 monthly for their soon-to-be-terminated health care plan with a $2,500 deductible. The cheapest plan they found on their state insurance exchange was a so-called bronze plan charging a $1,275 monthly premium with deductibles totaling $12,700. It covers only providers in Pennsylvania, so the couple, who live near Delaware, won't be able to see doctors they've used for more than a decade.
"We're buying insurance that we will never use and can't possibly ever benefit from. We're basically passing on a benefit to other people who are not otherwise able to buy basic insurance," said Griffin, who is retired from running an information technology company.
The Griffins are among millions of people nationwide who buy individual insurance policies and are receiving notices that those policies are being discontinued because they don't meet the higher benefit requirements of the new law.
