This site is full of facts about ObamaCare. Facts based upon the theory of what ObamaCare would bring. I doubt that this will be published, but I am a REAL ObamaCare user. I received a significant benefit in subsidies by using the marketplace. Due to significant health problems and lack of income I pay a fraction of what I used to pay for healthcare. However, I support repeal of the law. Why?
As of April 30th, 2015 an untold number of marketplace users lost their subsidies without notice or explanation. I was one of them. I submitted the required documentation regarding my income. But according to the marketplace management, my documents were declined and then deleted from the website (leaving me no evidence of having submitted them). Without my knowledge, they contacted my healthcare insurance carrier and changed my policy. I now have a $7,000 deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. My premiums are over $800 per month. I’ve talked with numerous managers at the marketplace and received no explanation. I can only conclude that this is how the administration plans to make the law seem financially viable.
I am currently on an injectible medication monthly with a cost of over $2,500 per injection. I told the marketplace management that I could not afford to keep taking these injections without the subsidies. The manager admitted that “many consumers are in the same situation”. I asked her, what if this was chemotherapy? Her response was that she was sorry, but there was nothing else I could do and no one else I could speak with.
I’ve done nothing wrong. And without explanation or notification, my Federal Government has gone behind my back and cost me thousands of dollars in collaboration with my insurance carrier and force me to cancel my medical treatments. Affordable Care Act???? REPEAL OBAMACARE! OBAMA DOESN’T CARE.
