Since the beginning of 2016, four ObamaCare co-op insurance plans have failed. That means tens of thousands of Americans are feeling the pain, all thanks to the so-called Affordable Care Act:
A new wave of failures among ObamaCare’s nonprofit health insurers is disrupting coverage for thousands of enrollees and raising questions about whether regulators could have acted earlier to head off some of the problems.
The latest round of failures poses an even thornier problem than earlier cases because enrollees’ coverage is now being disrupted in the middle of the year. That can increase patients’ out of pocket costs and make it harder to keep the same doctors.
In Illinois, Oregon and Ohio, a combined total of about 92,000 people are being forced to find a new plan. A co-op in a fourth state, Connecticut, will last until the end of the year.
Ouch. That’s 92,000 more people who have had their health care plan unceremoniously disrupted, all thanks to ObamaCare.
Are you one of those people? If so, could you take just a few minutes to answer a couple of questions to help us learn more about your experience with ObamaCare’s failing co-ops?
