We told the left this would happen. We know it's their plan to get to one payer system.
This news hits at a time my husband and I are anxiously awaiting news of open enrollment. We are praying that his employer decides to keep current healthcare benefits. Looking over the exchange plans offered here in NC again yesterday, we realized how utterly screwed we will be if dumped to the exchanges. The plans are all more expensive, cover less and create more nightmares than we have with our current plan and its changes from Obamacare.
I was posting about these plans yesterday and several people joined in saying, "Don't get this one, or that one, we have it and we can't find a doctor who takes it!" The tier plans are simply confusing. One NC friend says the plan is making healthcare for her family a nightmare.
I searched for our boys' specialists by name again and they didn't pop up, even though it looks like they've added more doctors and clinics to their coverage. Wouldn't it be nice if I was sitting here typing this without any angst over losing coverage? Wouldn't it be nice if Obama and the Demicrats hadn't lied when they said, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan," and "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor."!!??
In 13 days, I head to Cincy with my youngest. We will be there over a week for surgery, testing and a few appointments. We are thankful to be getting it in this year, because we honestly don't know if we will have a plan that covers any of it next year. It's an awful place to be if you have kids with chronic conditions. Is this really happening in America?
We never had the extra worry of life-saving Meds not being covered or worried about losing coverage. This is the new normal. Before Obamacare, we could focus on taking care of our children and their medical needs. Obama has done a bang up job in helping families like mine, hasn't he?
