Thanks Obama – My Healthcare Plan Was Just Canceled

“If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.”

 

Submitted by Michael Krieger:

In the run-up to the passage of Obamacare, President Obama repeatedly assured the American public that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.”

Here are just a few examples (is that Jon Corzine grinning enthusiastically at the 20 second mark?):

Interestingly enough, as much as I didn’t like my healthcare plan, I was planning on keeping it. Until I received a letter telling me I couldn’t from United Healthcare. Indeed, they weren’t too subtle about the entire thing, making it perfectly clear what was about to happen.

Not exactly the best way to start your week. As I proceeded to flip though the 10 page letter, I was directed to what United Healthcare deemed to be a comparable plan for me in 2017. Here’s how that plan compares to my current plan.

Premium payments: +30%
Per person deductible: +160%
Per person out of pocket maximum: +4.5%
Primary physician copay: +85%
Specialist copay: +115%

The list goes on. The only thing better about this plan is coinsurance drops from 30% to 20%.

I’ve been writing about the Obamacare implosion all year, but this time it hit very close to home.

Thanks for the parting gift Obama.
