Go read it again. If they cancelled your plan it sucked and you were getting screwed. Check the new coverage and rates you can get. Btw cobra is not
an insurance company and Aetna has plans under the ACA.
Have you looked into this at all or is your rant just a knee jerk reaction caused by the right wing media?
My plan did not "suck" nor was I "getting screwed" by it. It meant my needs just fine and has done so for ten years. I guess the "knee jerk" is
the fact that my insurer has DOUBLED the cost of my plan because the old plan did not "meet the requirements" of the ACA. If you will remember,
Obama said, "If you like your plan, you can keep it." Turns out that isn't true at all. The thing is, statements like that helped give support to
pass the plan, but now that Peolosi's idea that "we have to pass the plan so we can see what's in it" has come home to roost.
So just exactly what are you accusing the "right wing media" (IMO, an oxymoron) of doing? Am I indulging in a right wing conspiracy when I report to
you that my plan doubled in price? Am I a right wing nut because I report to you that, unlike what Obama promised, I cannot "keep my plan" even
though I liked it just fine? Just what about this complete fiasco is it that is generated by the right wing?
You are correct that Aetna has plans under the ACA--just not the same plans, and they happen to be much more costly. In fact, if I obtained a plan
through the new "health care markets," and example of which is the Federal site that doesn't work, I would be paying 400% more (My state site works
and I checked it out.)
You are correct about COBRA, but you fail to say what it is. COBRA is a law that mandates employers continue to offer you health care coverage if you
separate from employment, from 18 months to 36 months, depending on the circumstances. But YOU pay all the premiums. So if you have been lucky enough
to have your employer provide you with a Cadillac benefits package, you get to pay the entire cost of that during the COBRA period, that is, if you
can afford it.
The ONLY people who will benefit from this law are people who are (a) employed full time and (b) have their entire health care insurance paid by their
employer. Everyone else gets screwed, particularly part-time employees or people who are "too rich" for Medicaid, but "too poor" for Obamacare.
For those of you who voted for Obama and who think Obamacare is a good thing, you RICHLY DESERVE what is about to happen to you.
