It’s a short story. This isn’t exactly what I call health care reform, or a success.
Turns out, I can keep my existing group health insurance plan with United Healthcare. That’s the good news. And that’s only because
King President Obama waived the (settled law) employer mandate until after the 2014 election. The bad news is, my premium doubles, and my deductible goes from $3,000 to $12,000 a year. For all practical purposes, I’m self-insured. This is what spreading the wealth around looks like. And, it’s only the beginning. The other shoe drops when the employer mandate finally goes into effect and 150 million more policies get cancelled.
Still waiting for Obamacare to tell me what kind of coverage I can get. It’s been over two weeks now since they told me they would send policy coverages to me in the mail. Snail mail.
