This is a story of a friend of mine that owns a appliance store, he works hard ,a good man and on our town council. here is his story:
I don't usually log onto these types of websites to post my story - but I did this time. I'm sure the IRS, CIA and who knows who else will come
visit me now. Honestly, I don't care anymore. NOT TRUE? You Jackass Harry Reid. Then you are calling me a liar - well, here's my story (many of you
have heard it already) I am a small business owner who works 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, often enough on Sunday from home. My family health care
was $1200 per month, prescriptions were covered, no doctor co-pay, 2500 per person/$4000 per family, deductible. At $1200 a month, the costs were
difficult, especially during these last six years of the economic downturn, but they were somewhat manageable.
Like many others, I received the cancellation letter from Anthem Blue Cross last fall. I held off, and checked the ACA. At first it seemed I would
qualify for subsidy. After realizing each of my family members salary had to be considered, we qualified for zero. Being a moderate, middle income
family, it's no surprise that I get nothing, never do, I just pay.
My NEW policy took affect January 2014, Anthem deducted my checking account $2700. for one month insurance. That is 2 1/2 TIMES MORE money!!!!!!! As
the infomericals say; WAIT THERE'S MORE. The very next day, my wife goes to pick up her medication. The clerk says; "Here you are, that will be
$1200.00, how would you like to pay?" When we checked with Anthem, we were told; "Well, your new policy DOES NOT COVER MEDICATION UNTIL YOU REACH
YOUR $6000 OUT OF POCKET DEDUCTIBLE" Wait, there's more! I asked my wife to check with her doctors, since we would obviously have to find another
insurance company. As you may know, with the rules, regulations, and paperwork, most doctors can't afford the secretarial staff, so they have formed
groups, or networks. When she spoke to her doctors network she was told which insurance they would take. THEN she was told, until you get new
insurance, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY CASH. She said; "no, we still have our old insurance, with Anthem". The reply was, NO, you have your old
"company", but your new "policy" with them, is considered "Obamacare" and we will no longer accept it because of the regulations,
So, for two months, my family had NO INSURANCE. We rolled the dice. Finally, we found a policy that is ONLY 1 1/2 TIMES MORE MONEY.
So, Mr. Reid, if "all the stories are untrue", you are calling me a liar. PLEASE come visit me (I'm sure you know where I live and what I ate for
dinner), and PLEASE call me a liar to my face.
