In July I wrote about Humana’s decision to terminate most of their ‘non-grandfathered’ individual and family health insurance plans no later than December 31, 2014. The second carrier to make this decision was Aetna. I wrote about their decision in August. They too will terminate most of their ‘non-grandfathered’ individual and family health insurance plans no later than 12/31/2014. Now, a third carrier – United HealthOne – Golden Rule insurance company has made the decision to cancel their ‘non-grandfathered’ individual and family health insurance plans in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Nevada and Virginia no later than 12/31/2014. In other words, Barack Obama lied when he said “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” This is of course is no surprise to high information voters. Most especially the 6,286,357 policy holders who lost their coverage in 2013 because of Obamacare.
The truth is these plans would have been terminated last year but Barack Obama used his “pen and his phone” to unilaterally delay the termination of these policies for an additional year. Unfortunately for these Humana, Aetna and United HealthOne policy holders, that one year delay is now over.
