Is Obamacare Affecting Your Coverage?
I don’t know about your Facebook news feed, but mine has been absolutely ablaze with a mixture of sheer outrage, and loud support, for Obamacare.
On the one hand, we have small business owners right here in the Magic Valley, for example, who are already being affected by it. Some have premiums doubling and tripling, and others’ plans being cancelled altogether. Maybe you caught that earlier this week, 2 million people are reported to be losing coverage. And possibly more, potentially up to 15 million.
On the other hand, we also have local folks who could NOT get any coverage before (due to preexisting conditions, etc.) who are finally able. Some people’s plans are also less expensive than before. 15% of Americans who weren’t able to get healthcare prior to the Affordable Care Act are reported to be eligible for coverage.
Rather than fly a flag on the issues, I’m more interested in a question: has it affected you personally, and if so, how?
