Getting nervous when I heard about the 300K being dropped from BCBS FL. I have an individual policy on my family, but I just received an e-mail from them saying I'm not affected. So who are these people, and what are the plans? I think for us to know the proper effect Obamacare is having on medicine, we need to identify the people being thrown off insurance plans. Are they: (1) the sicker (2) the older (3) people on HSA or high deductible plans (4) people on some real low benefit plan like something that only covers annual physicals or something (5) people on catastrophic plans Please don't respond by linking articles, I don't want hearsay. I want to know if you or anyone you know has been dropped, and a brief summary of your/their situation may help us find out who's taking the hit here. For you leftists, if people are being thrown off high-deductible plans for exchange plans that cost more with higher deductibles, this has to be fixed. While I agree that American healthcare is better when the consumer has more "skin in the game", it has to be within reason and reform should not cost a person more money for a policy that has a higher deductible. That implies that Obama is paying for the unfortunate on the backs of those that were being responsible and buying a minimal plan to suit their personal needs. So you're paying for the poor from people that didn't use the system at all. For the right wing reactionaries, if the people being dropped have crappy plans, this could potentially be a good thing, for the consumer and the current admin. It would be more difficult to reverse course if we discover that those 300K had plans that only paid $50 for a visit, the remainder fell to the patient's responsibility, or something like that. This admin could say "We had to set a bare minimum for these people". I used to see plans like that all the time, where someone would come in with their chest all puffed out, proudly slap down their Blue Cross card, ask for the works-stress tests, CAT scans- then realize their "insurance" only paid about $50 regardless of what all was ordered. So before we get all knee-jerk here, let's get some hard data, ask around and see if any of your buddies have been dropped, let's see where Obama is going with this. Once we see who's getting these notices, we'll have a better idea of cause-and-effect, as well as motives.
