Hey, know what you get to 'keep' with Obamacare? Cancellation notices

As Twitchy reported, that whole “you can keep your plan” thing? Psych! Insurers are sending out letters letting y’all know what is “in the bill.” Guess what? The coverage that you had for you and your family is not.

The responses are continuing to come in. Individual plans and  group plans alike are proving that whole “you can keep your plan” thing was, as suspected, a lie. Further, if you are trying to obtain a new plan, don’t even bother applying.

That’s right. A congressman’s plan has also been canceled:

But, hey, the big problem is Sen. Cruz, right Beltway-entrenched GOPers? And if you are an Obamacare “nonbeliever,” you shouldn’t get health care at all, says an unhinged UCSF employee. She may get her wish, unless you assimilate and buy through an Obamacare exchange, rolling out in October.

    i got my “notice” months ago when they told me that to keep my tricare prime i would have to move within 40 miles of a military base. guess that’s the best way to limit non-veteran casualties by getting them all in a “cordoned area”.

    • vetgal1970

      The military has been especially unlucky between Obamacare and the Center for American Progress ‘helping’ to rework the pay scales and retirement changes. I truly hate this man.

      • Elaine

        This may be a stupid question, but with the BILLIONS spent on Obamacare and implementation, wouldn’t it have been easier and much more efficient to offer some kind of free or reduced policy to the low percentage of people without insurance?

        • Cyborg3K

          Only if you are trying to improve the heath care system and possibly save some money. The point of Obamacare is exactly the opposite.

        • vetgal1970

          If that had been their actual intent, yes it seems like it would have been. But when you start from the position that anything someone earned was done by depriving someone else, you first have to strip it all back to zero. Because the world started over in 2009.

        • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

          Probably, but that may not mean more votes for the DNC.

        • Charlotte Juett

          Government cannot use common sense. They have to find the most complicated non answer to a non problem and then inflict it on all of us. Then they can say that they have to tax us more to correct the problem they created in the first place.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Wait, you’re just finding out that liberalism is a total lie, a transparent scam and an untenable political point of view? Welcome home friends !

    • AmericanMom

      It’s a mental disease, one that doesn’t permit alternative views or common sense usage.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Seems that under the unAffordable less Care Act no existing plans meet any of the standards imposed by the law. Yeah, I’d say that was by design and why wasn’t any of this being disclosed a year ago?

    • Clayton Grant

      Unaffordable Careless Act

      • stuckinIL4now

        Yeah, that too. Or as my official formal name for it is: The Patient Prevention and unAffordable Obama couldn’t Care less Act of war on American freedom.

    • vetgal1970

      They had to wait until HHS had the chart of what most common insurance plans had, and cross reference to know what to add to make the plan different enough to call it incompatible.
      Then she had to write it, but the software was down, so they had to get $1 billion emergency dollars to hire a Calligrapher to write it. Then they had to wait for the ink to dry, but the humidity. So they had to get $250,000 to hire Calligrapher Apprentice to wave the paper around. These things take time.

      • MNWoman

        Well, when you put it that way, it is completely understandable.

    • MNWoman

      They most likely hadn’t read it at that time (or even at this time).

      • Koalablue

        Being deaf with a cochlear implant rocks. When Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and other lefties come on tv, I turn off my implant and pretend that I’m talking for them. My kids fall to the floor screaming when I interpret what people on tv says especially Obama.

        • MNWoman

          Hahaha…I am late deafened and my doctors did implant a C.I. but it does not work.

          It is hard to explain how deaf I am. I hear absolutely nothing. No thunder, no fireworks, no ambulance/police sirens.

          My auditory nerves are completely dead. Someday I think I will hear again, but in the meantime, I am learning new skills (ASL) and new appreciations, both real (I read a lot more instead of watching tv) and the snarky (not having to listen to Obama, Pelosi et al.).

          • Koalablue

            Lot my hearing when I was 2. Got the implant 13 years ago. Been heck of a ride. A friend sucked me into the local politics a few years ago and have been active since then.

            As an expert body language reader, Obama and Reid’s mannerisms and body quirks really irritates me for some reason so I prefer not to look at them and often read the transcripts.

      • stuckinIL4now

        I actually meant why our side wasn’t disclosing those details. I read a lot about things that were going to happen but many of the specifics of what’s happening now, things like requiring unlimited lifetime coverage amounts, weren’t widely published anywhere.

        • MNWoman

          I am not sure when those were all negotiated. I think even until last week with the unions they were working out other details, so it is entirely possible it was kind of “lost in the shuffle”.

          Bottom line, the entire thing needs to be scrapped. If they want to find affordable coverage for low income, people with pre-existing conditions, etc, then fix that problem and leave the things that work alone.

    • syvyn11

      The MSM was too busy destroying Romney and Ryan. Under Obama’s orders, of course.

    • Charlotte Juett

      Why wasn’t any of it discussed 4 or 5 years ago?

  • Clayton Grant

    Took a Dramamine and sat down to watch a couple of Nancy Pelosi weekend interviews. It’s was painfully obvious that she still hasn’t read the bill.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Ain’t enough wine in her winery to help her get through reading it.

      • Clayton Grant

        If she had wine bottles they would be labeled Sour Grapes

    • vetgal1970

      OMG I tried to watch and her ridiculous hand kabuki aggravated my vertigo. That’s even worse than her Hen Pecking Hand. Is that some kind of LIV hypnosis thing? “You will only listen to Snap and Pop, Crackle is a racist” “When I wave my hands around you hear wanh wanh waah wanh”…. She needs to be evaluated.

      • grais

        hand kabuki—lolol
        there’s something wrong w/that woman.

      • Magdalene51

        Did you see Judge Jeanine Saturday night making fun of the hand kabuki? Hilarious.

        • vetgal1970

          LOL Really? Too funny. If SNL doesn’t parody her the way they have our ladies, they are missing out on comedy gold.

      • 57Bootsy

        Dearest vetgal1970, just read your post and I can’t stop laughing! “Hand-kabuki, hen pecking hand…” killing me!! Of course you are exactly on target, that plastic hag bag definitely needs to be evaluated!!! Thank you for the HUGE laff!!!

    • grais

      I’d need something a lot stronger than Dramamine….

        Let’s ask the liberal trolls who come here what they are on, because obviously the libs are on something majorly heavy if they are unable to see the facts that are slapping them across the face.

      • Debbie Butler

        How bout a Valium? LOL

    • MNWoman

      I feel now is a great time to point out the benefits of being deaf…

      I cannot hear her speak, therefor it is ALMOST tolerable to simply read her nonsense.

      • MNWoman

        The down vote troll down voted a deaf person!

        That is clearly “hearing-ism”!

        Then it’s true; There’s always a silver lining. :)

      Why should she ? It doesn’t affect her at all. It’s only for us little people and “the children”.

    • mark abrams

      When I have the misfortune of watching Nancy Pelosi it is obviously that she is on drugs most of the time . She has probably fried what was not a very formidable brian to begin with to to the point that she can no longer read at all. That is why she has to pass legislation in order to find out what is in it .

  • J. Cox

    Ahhh..got to love them roosters when they come home.The fools who still believe pricing is going to come down,I have a bridge,cheap,used once.

      And that’s just one of an endless string of things with this “law” that are megadisasters waiting to happen.

      • Arthur A Miller

        What cocerns me now is the Repub’s are ta;king about backing down let it happen when it implodes which it will they will have to admit it was a bad idea. Problem is Democrates never admit failer it is always some one elses fault it faild in the mean time what the heck are we supposed to do as the economy completly crashes in on us.

    • BigTBoom

      Too bad we’ve all been pigeon holed into the same hen house while the governments finding ways for themselves and their friends to fly the coop…

    Have been paying $50/month for insurance; starting Jan 1 increased to $550/month.Thank God “if I liked what I had, nothing would change.”
    Freakin liars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • World B. Free

      Wow. It would be cheaper to pay the fine (er, I mean, tax, thank you Judge Roberts).

      But of course, that’s what 0bama and the Democraps want. They want you to
      hand your money over to THEM, not those evil, greedy insurance companies
      who, for years, were giving you fair rates and the coverage YOU want.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise . . . a law written by socialist turns out to be detrimental to capitalist businesses.

  • TJ

    Not to worry the exchanges website will be fully ready to use in 2015. With the IRS never sending you a bill for not having “approved” coverage even if you got the coverage from the list on exchanges website.

  • tops116

    Question: Does the guy who keeps voting down get an Obamacare waiver if he meets a certain quota?

  • MNWoman

    Sigh…

    Let me preface this by saying my best friend is awesome. She has been extremely supportive when I needed her, especially after I became deaf as an adult. I know I can always depend on her when I need her.

    That said, she is an Obamacare-loving liberal.

    She doesn’t believe the rising health insurance premiums are the governments fault. She thinks if the insurance companies want to raise premiums because of increased requirements, that is their choice, therefore the responsibility does not fall on teh government. Her thought is the health insurance industry has been making millions of dollars off of insurers so they can afford the extra coverage and shouldn’t be making the buyers pay more. The idea she has is the health insurance industry is a huge conflict of interest because their goal is to make a profit while covering as little as possible.

    I have tried pointing out hte many flaws or unintended consequences of Obmacare, but all it does is cause a huge fight. If I choose to wage another battle with her, I might start with this. This IS the government’s fault. These letters specifically indicate the current policy does not meet the requirements for the ACA.

    • vetgal1970

      We have a ‘bot in the family. He seems to think the insurance companies are able to just make the changes and it should cost little to nothing. I guess because it is not real, these extra people and their doctor costs. And we no longer discuss the definition of words like insurance and CARE, because apparently they are interchangeable.
      I lost my family’s insurance the summer before last and it was union negotiated to boot. It should not have come as a surprise that if they wanted to force me to pay for (AFSCME) representation I didn’t want or need, that they would be OK making me pay for whatever they thought I ought to…. Family parties are a quiet affair. 😉
      Good luck with your friend, I understand the mixture of frustration and worry that you are feeling.

    • Vitiosum

      I feel your pain. My father, who is NOT an Obama fan, really and truly believes that the Insurance Companies are at fault. He only leans slightly toward any major govt involvement. To his credit (or maybe his discredit) though not completely deaf, my father does have a hearing deficit. He does not use a computer and only watches mainstream tv. He is a proud veteran. He is in in his late 70’s so he is stuck in his ways. My siblings and I have talked to him many many times about this situation but alas, it is like talking to a brick wall. He is stubborn and still vows that no matter what happens he will do as he pleases and no one will force him to do anything. So I have made it my goal to guard and guide my father as much as I can through this time that I see coming up. I don’t envision this to be a pleasant thing, but the best I can do for him is help him through the times that are coming. I also worry about my young adult children and how they will handle this. I am not worried about myself, as I have figured out just how I will handle this situation for me should the time come that my current insurance drops me. Luckily, I am fairly certain that my insurance is intact for at least another year, but I believe the employees where I am employed have been given the hint that it will not last beyond another year. I know will know for certain within the week.

    • mark abrams

      Insurance companie are for the most part publicly traded companies. Their profits are a matter of public record. You can easily verify that insurance companies don’t make exceptional profits, Microsoft and Apple do much better . You could point this out to the liberals you are afflicted with,. Unfortunately ,much like flies and other pests, liberals don’t reason well or show any interest in facts.

  • I LikeMyPlan GoAway

    Received my notice in July that my current plan would need to be changed to something ACA compliant. However, in same notice, they state that they are allowing me to keep my current plan until anniversary date in 2014, which will be April 2014. Specifically, “The good news is BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee (BlueCross) made a small change to your plan that allows you to keep it until your anniversary date in 2014.”

    Anybody else get this “small change” allowing you to keep coverage past October 1?

    • Warren_28

      For what it’s worth, Golden Rule sent me a notice that since my plan was in effect before the ACA was signed into law (3/23/2010), that my plan is grandfathered indefinitely and I won’t need to switch to an ACA-compliant plan as long as I keep current. So for now they aren’t planning to eliminate my existing plan. They even quote exactly.. “you can keep it as long as you like”. I still hate the ACA and every socialist notion it stands for.

  • arttie

    The down troll will be surprised when he comes up from the basement and finds out her parents insurance is cancelled and it has no coverage. Note gender neutral references to the troll.

    • David J Bachtel

      The trolls came out of the closet crying, last week, when I pointed out some of the exemptions to Ovomit care. Without listing names, it’s kind of scary how certain “religious” groups are exempt. The same “religious” groups who are infamous for taxing non-members, elsewhere in this world. It gives you something to think about since these very same “people” buy insurance to drive yet Ovomit care goes against their beliefs.

    Awww, aren’t they all precious and naïve. Did they honestly believe Obama when he told them they can keep their insurance. Isn’t that adorable? I guess they believe in fairies, unicorns and magical wizards too! Nighty night libtards. Don’t let the Obamabugs bite.

  • ICOYAR

    Hope this sparks mass riots in front of the White House and Capitol building.

      It’ll be the libs who do it, too. Once they get hit with the negative effects and find out that Obama isn’t looking out for them the way they were tricked into believing, the libs will begin rioting. It’s in their nature.

      • Stranded in Sonoma

        You wish. The ‘tards will actually believe that Obama will come riding in on a unicorn with a rainbow flowing out of its @$$ and will save them from the evil Republicans that made these rates go up because they weren’t 100% on board!

        They’ll blame RINOs, Republicans, the Tea Party, Libertarians, the JOOZ!, the International Zionist Conspiracy, the Koch Brothers, the Smothers’ Brothers, Brother Printers, HP Printers, Printer Ink companies, the cast of Miami Ink, the Miami Dolphins, Starkist dolphin-safe tuna, and tuna sandwiches that Mooshell won’t allow to be fed to students.

        It will be everyone’s fault but Obama/Jarrett, Pelosi, Reid, and John Roberts.

  • Stranded in Sonoma

    Remember when the scumbag libtards would follow Richard Nixon around (after he left the presidency!) and shout LIAR over and over again during his speeches?

    Why isn’t there a group doing that now to Obama? I guess it’s because conservative students are worried about their grades (liberal students don’t have to be worried) and conservatives actually have real jobs, instead of getting paid to protest.

    Too bad. It would fun to watch as Obama goes through his “ums” and “uhs” while the crowd yells LIAR, LIAR, LIAR and even the MSM cameras pick up the protesters.

    the question for me is how much longer can obama lie to people about obamacare. there is lots of proof out there, but it never seems to get out to the people
