If you like your plan you can keep it unless it’s Humana, Aetna or United HealthOne

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.

  1. How are we ever going to reign in the greed of the insurance companies that are benefiting so much from Obamacare once this travesty is repealed? They won’t want to go back to the prices before Obama.

    But if it is replaced by doing the things that should have been done – tort control, loosening the regulations to allow insurance to be bought/sold over state lines, etc. – the market will take care of itself.

    All right, nevermind. I’m ok. Answered my own question. 🙂

  2. @claudia pls educate me on how ins cos. r making money off of obamacare. Why can’t we push repeal and open ins across state lines. Leave it to those who offer best plan. Not making fun. Need to understand. Thks!

    Buried in the thousands of pages of the ACA are automatic bailouts of the insurance companies. Bribing them with guaranteed profits was the only way to get them to play along.

  4. Didn’t Bush 1 get his ass absolutely handed to him for the “no new taxes” pledge?
    Yet this prick can get by with this?

  5. Correct. It’s not like anything of this wasn’t projected. It was all too clear at the time.

    It’s crap like this that the Republican party needs to utilize in a plan and start advertising it to Americans on what it plans to do in order to save America’s future. This needs to happen how, and keep hammering it hard all the way until election day.

    Then, when the Republicans take the senate, we can push in and demand more accountability from them as conservatives. The party needs to be taken back – or completely gutted of all the RINO crap so that all this socialized garbage being pushed on America can end, ASAP!
