I had insurance for years, although I very rarely used it. Because the monthly payment was an ‘e-payment’ that was subtracted directly from my account, and because I could count the number of times I used the insurance in five years on one hand with three fingers left over, I was not aware that ObamaCare had kicked me out of my regular plan.
When I finally did need the insurance I had been paying for years that because of ObamaCare, I no longer had insurance, even though I had made every payment on time. When I contacted my (former) insurance company, they informed me that although, yes, I had made all my payments, that I was no longer covered because of ObamaCare. When I tried to purchase a new plan, they informed that: NOT ONLY COULD I NOT PURCHASE A NEW PLAN, BUT THAT IT WOULD BE FIVE MORE MONTHS BEFORE I WAS EVEN ALLOWED TO PURCHASE INSURANCE!!!! FIVE MONTHS.
I had insurance. ObamaCare took away my insurance. And when I tried to buy new insurance I was told I had to wait five months. I was NOT applying for a subsidy. I was trying to buy the insurance I already had WITH MY OWN MONEY and was told that I WAS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR INSURANCE NO MATTER HOW MUCH I PAYED!!!!
How does this help!
I have a medical condition that I have not been able to be treated for for over five months!
I am/was a democrat. I voted for Obama. I disagree with almost everything the Republicans stand for. But I WILL NOT vote Democrat again unless they can figure this travesty out.
How does denying people access to Health Insurance make it more accessible?
How do higher premiums make Health Insurance more accessible?
How does limiting enrollment times to 3 months a year make insurance coverage more accessible?
How can we increase the percentage of insured individuals by limiting access?
How do we increase preventative care when we telling people that they can either wait five months until they are eligible to BUY coverage?
This policy is absurdly counterproductive.
People who have previously paid for coverage and need treatment are BEING DENIED TREATMENT by the policies of ObamaCare.
