    Since so many RJ members are Americans, I'm sure there will be at most 3 or 4 of you who have had their current insurance plan "transitioned" (terminated).

    Let us know all the things your new plan no longer covers and how much higher your premium, co-pay and/or deductible is.

    For the thousands and thousands of RJ members that have had a good experience with Obamacare, for example, you got to keep your plan that you liked and you got to keep your doctor that you liked doctor, there's a thread for you too.

    I'm dissapointed that people call it Obamacare because soon it will be government healthcare. It was the plan of the progressives all along to get rid of insurance companies and make the entire country more dependent on government. The democrat party has single handedly ruined healthcare in this country but now everyone can share in their misery

    Hmmmm. So far, no RJ members having their premiums / co-pays / deductibles raised because of Obamacare. What a lucky bunch!

    Will you be buying insurance for all of your personalities, or can you shove them all onto one policy???

    I went to check out the rates before all that mess with the website happened and I found out the cheapest plan for me is $407.64 a month. Nice.icon_neutral.gif I'm just gonna keep my current plan.

    Not so fast. My group plan that had a discount for area realtors, but was still an individual plan paid for individually went from $2,913 a year to $8,609 a year .... so yeah, that's enough of an increase. Not buying. Will try to limp through until medicare days.

    Thanks for posting. I'm curious, are you able to keep your current plan? Or did it need to be modified to meet the new requirements?

    My current plan is none. I wanted to put some humor into my original post. The thing is, I have always been healthy. I don't have any habits, or pre-existing conditions that could severely affect my health in the future. I don't see the point for me to pay for something that I won't use or worse, be penalized for choosing not to have it. I don't really know who is this act benefiting but wasting massive amounts of money on a health plan that was presented as affordable when it's obvious that is not is ridiculous.

    I really don't see the need to keep harping on Obamacare. Yes, it's a train wreck, plane crash, etc. It will be talked and bitched about ad nauseum for a while. The press will bury it and it will be forgotten. Best to just learn to live with it.

    When I was 36 I was in exactly the same position as you. I even had a full physical that year. Then 10 months later I had a stroke that no one saw coming. I spent three days in acute care then 6 weeks in a rehab centre. I would have bet on my health too (as you are with yours.).

    I lost that bet.

    I hope you are luckier than I was (but the number of people in our age bracket having strokes is rising for some reason).

    For you, yes. For Americans, we will live (better) with it.

    That's right. This is the first step but in the end we can not trust our basic human rights to for profit companies. The government needs to completely take over the financing and delivery of all health care services. Health care is a basic human right.

    In addition I wrote in the other topic that equally as important as health care is the food we eat. The for profit food industry should be outlawed by the government. Our food is loaded with poisons and preservatives all designed to maximize profits for the big food companies. Something as important as the food we eat, as is healthcare, something that should be taken over by the government. It is the only way we can be protected from for profit corporations.

    So, let me get this straight, republicans do everything they can to defund and damage Obamacare, including republican governors not setting up healthcare exchanges and then when the rollout goes all sorts of wrong, they get to stand on the sidelines and laugh and say what a mess it is?
    It's almost like putting two wars on a credit card and then complaining about the massive debt. Oh right, they do that too.

    Nope. Republicans TRIED but they were blocked by the Senate, so in reality Republicans did NOTHING that blocked Obamacare.


    smartmoney saidrepublican governors not setting up healthcare exchanges


    Which was a decision they were allowed to make. The success of Obamacare had nothing to do with whether the Federal government or the states ran the exchanges.



    smartmoney said they get to stand on the sidelines and laugh and say what a mess it is?


    Yep, as they should, since in early October they tried to get the Democrats to delay the individual mandate for 1 year but Harry Reid and Barack Obama said absolutely not. (And now many Democrats are calling for a 1 year delay in the individual mandate - how ironic!).

    Yeah, too bad most of the Democrats voted for those "two wars on a credit card." If they had voted against it, we would have been spared the huge expense in terms of money and lives lost.

    Maybe you should consider changing your screen name to something other than smartmoney. There is nothing smart about your money if you don't understand the deal made between the states and the Federal Government, where the Medicaid expansion is concerned.

    The states chose not to expand the Medicaid rolls because after the three years in which the Federal Government agreed to pay 100% for the Medicaid expansion, the Federal government will begin to roll back how much they will pay for the Medicaid expansion leaving the states to pay for something they can not afford to pay for. Judging from your post, that's a concept that is difficult for "smartmony" to grasp.

    Of course, I'm sure, as usual, your answer to paying for more expansion of government and entitlements is to tax everyone but you.

    Smartmoney, you're not!
