Despite what Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.) would have us believe, a health insurance company cannot disenroll a member simply because the member gets sick. If an insurer did that, any trial lawyer would jump at the opportunity to sue. This is true today, and it was true long before Obamacare was enacted.
We all heard the horror stories about insurance companies during the Obamacare debate. Turns out that most of those stories were fables.
Moreover, most large private insurance companies publicly stated prior to today’s Supreme Court ruling that no matter what the Court decided they would be keeping many of the mandates from Obamacare that had already taken effect.
Looks like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was wrong: Two years after it was enacted, some of the most adamant supporters of the Affordable Care Act are still very confused about what is actually in the law.
