I lost my job in September and have been receiving unemployment since October.
I have multiple health problems that made it impossible to get insurance last year. I was able to get coverage that began as of January 1.
The coverage I had was awesome in that all my medication and my primary doctor visits where covered 100% and my deductible was only $300.
Since I have exhausted my unemployment as of last week I called healthcare.gov to let them know which was a nightmare.
I have just had my insurance canceled and was told I had to either pay for it myself at 100% or I had to now go to the community health clinic in my area.
Isn’t our government great. It is bad enough that they lie about the unemployment rate now they have to penalize people with their health coverage.
They only know about those individuals that are actively collecting unemployment. I have called my state senator office to be told I am one of the ones that are falling between the crack.
How can our president stand up and say he is providing coverage for everyone when this is a lie. Something needs to be done about this!!!!!!!!!!!!
