"Seven years since the passage of the ACA..."

"Worked tirelessly to keep up with the frequent and unpredictable changes in the ACA..."

"Unfortunately we do not see any end..."

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Thanks for the opinion pieces. I should forward them to my insurance company.

    Sorry to hear it. I hope you find an alternative.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Sorry to hear Buffco.

    Maybe in 2018 you can check into some energy credits.

    Will your employer be paying you more to go on the exchanges?

    it is so adorable that you believe this sort of thing never happened before the ACA. Employers have been coming up with excuses to cut health care costs for decades.

    I believe it's the insurance company that dropped Buffco, not his employer cutting healthcare.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 21,201 Senior Member
    So are you suggesting there are no other options for insurance that his employer could negotiate for?

    I do believe Buffy is the employer.

    Did you miss the part where this was our insurance who cancelled on us? My employer found out a couple days before we did.

    We're reactionaries. We'll freak out January 1.

    And again, is this his/her only option?

    The take away is there are fewer options. And those that remain are more expensive.

    Just so long as we're providing insurance for those precious 27 year olds who aren't buying anyway.

    That damned Aetna.

    I wonder who my insurance company was trying to merge with?
