A case-in-point on how the media can mislead you, sent in by Beverly Gossage of http://www.hsabenefitsconsulting.com/
1) CNBC professes to tell you who will lose their insurance if the ACA is repealed. Not might…WILL…they say. Their number is 25 million.
2) They outline 3 groups but fail to mention that most people are in all 3 subsets. So their number is erroneous.
3) Truth: none of these people would be forced off a plan. Of course, there would be a ramp off the ACA and the current plans would be grandfathered as new options would become available subject to state regs not federal. States can amend their regs to tailor them to their state.
4) Freedom does not force people off plans but gives more options.
Dear CNBC, please be advised that before you criticize anything, you should do your research. The unaffordable careless act, known as ACA Obamacare, has changed the entire field of health insurance to few government approved and some Medicaid subsidy plans. More than half the exchange insurance co-ops started with taxpayer dollars are now bankrupt. Most private insurers have left Obamacare exchanges leaving monopolies or even threaten to leave no insurers present to prevent citizens from being fined by the IRS for not buying nonexistent policies(see stats below).
ACA Obamacare has trashed the whole industry and taken competition out of the equation, leaving only high prices and poor coverage. Let me know if you need anything further.
Best wishes for good health,
