Told You So: 300,000 Floridians Losing Coverage

Last year at town hall meetings when I warned of the dangers of Obamacare and Floridians losing their coverage, liberal progressives called me an “extremist.”

Hate to say “I told you so,” but I hope y’all are happy with the results you’re getting from the Liar-in-Chief.

One of the largest insurance carriers in the state, Florida Blue, formerly known as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, just announced around 300,000 Floridians will get dumped off their insurance plans because those plans don’t comply with Obamacare – that’s 80 percent of its current individual policies. So much for “if you like your plan you can keep it.”

As of January 1, Obamacare requires all plans include “essential health benefits” like doctor visits, emergency and hospital services, maternity and newborn care; mental health and substance abuse treatment; prescription drugs; rehabilitation and devices that the therapy requires; prevention; chronic disease management; laboratory work; and pediatric services (including oral and vision care).

And it’s not just limited to Florida – policyholders across the nation are being dumped and are getting angry that they’re forced to buy plans that offer more coverage than they need. So much for your liberty and freedom.

Yep, the truth is pretty extreme. Unfortunately, here in America, as Thomas Sowell said, we have replaced what worked with what sounded good. I don’t think being told you’ve been dropped from your health insurance plan sounds good. Elections have consequences and folks are now experiencing them first hand.

  1. Most of us knew this was coming. It’s the gimmedats who want all the freebies Ovomit promised that put us all on a fast track to hell.

  2. Remember, Obamacare was never designed to solve the problem. It was designed to get the government’s foot in the door. The collapse/failure of the ACA will be blamed on the Florida Blue’s of the world, and the left will use that narrative as a launchpad for a singler-payer system.

  3. Keep telling it like is. It is really common sense vs irrational thinking people, what kind of people believe that 3000 pages of rules and lawyer speak was going to work?

    • it’s now up to 10,270 pages of lawyer speak, and a lot of it was put in after the senate voted on it. should not be allowed.

      • Yeah have you all hear of the Gang of 8 they are trying to vote on now? It will penalize business for hiring Americans and legal immigrants opposed to zero penalization for hiring an illegal immigrant!!! Go friggin Figure? Vote them Out of Office and Lets Get the Majority So We Do Not Have to endure any more of this pain they are ensuring we suffer.

  4. Maybe more people will pay attention to what the government is doing to the country. A list of the crimes the traitors are doing will and should wipe out there likes. How can a country tolerate such thing that are done to America continue with out acting to stop it. The biggest share of libs would have to go.

  5. Unfortunately, if Obama took a dump on the white house lawn in front of crowds of media cameras, 51% of the voters would deny it really happened. They wouldn’t know stupidity if it was staring them in the face.

  6. We tried to tell the people what would happen, but they were so invested in their “Cult of Personality” that no one would listen. Watching this mess, my only hope is the media and the country will wake up and see Obama for the fraud that he is.

  7. If you don’t like the president’s policies you might be a racist. If you disagree with liberals redistributing wealth, you might be a racist. If you want to keep more if your earnings, you are greedy and you may be a racist!

    • ” If you want to keep more if your earnings, you are greedy and you may be a racist!” And according to the Liberals, you are not a Christian…..

    • I think that this is what led Hitler to do what he did because he was a right wing extremist where the Jews were Liberal Progressives and wanted more of other peoples money.

      • That is the most asinine thing I have ever heard someone say. So who are you saying was at fault? Hitler because he was a right wing extremist or the Jews because they were greedy and needed to be stopped? I think your nickname is right. You probably are a racist.

  8. My husband has BC-BS. We are from PA. We got a letter from his provider 2 weeks ago. Basically saying that he was lucky as he had purchased his policy before the grandfathered cut of date of 2010. SO he wont lose his! but what about all the people that bought their policies and paid into them since 2010! Ridiculous!

    • I too am with BCBS and got the same letter. Mine went up per month as well as the deductible. I am going to stay with it because I want to get everything I may need when the time comes. Heaven forbid I get cancer and am only allowed 12 treatments under O care.

  9. Just so you know your link is missing the h in http. I was able to figure it out but less tech knowledgeable people may not. It’s an easy mistake to make and remedy. Thank you for pointing out all of this to us. I’ll be honest it’s great to see someone fighting the status quo and the liberal agenda that can’t be called a bigot. I know that race shouldn’t matter but unfortunately as you well know it does. Hopefully some day it won’t but until then the liberals will continue to claim they own all of the minority vote when in truth they shouldn’t nor is there much of a minority to speak of in many places now.

  10. That’s what is happening to me. My individual policy – $2500 deductible, 80/20 copay, $389 a month- is being dumped by Blue Cross. The closest equivalent is a Bronze level $6350 deductible 60/40 copay for $381 a month. That will be an additional $4000 out of my pocket annual- at least. I don’t have that kind of money laying around, so this pretty much means I’ll be avoiding the doctor because I can’t afford my deductible any more. How does that help expand care? Was the point to make it so expensive that people would simply stop trying to get care, and that’s how it brings expenses down?

    • Dena – what about your current policy did not meet the new regulations? Have they given you the specifics as to why they are dumping that plan. I’m not saying there isn’t valid reasons, but I’m also very suspicions of the insurance industry as to whether they dumping a plan because it does not meet the coming requirements, or if they are dumping the plan because this is the ideal time to get out of offering a better plan and not being blamed.

      • Brenda- I compared and as best I can tell it’s because my current policy doesn’t cover maternity – which was on purpose, as that’s not coverage I require. But the ACA requires all policies to cover that, which I think is part of the problem- they’ve taken reasonable choice away from people that allows people to keep their costs down. Paying $4K more a year to have coverage I don’t require is crazy.

      • Yes, that is very unreasonable. The only thing I can suggest is getting in touch with a local insurance agent and have them look for a plan for you provided by a vendor other than Blue Cross where the plan might be a closer match to what you have. I’ve talked to a couple of insurance agents and they want to make sure people understand these “Affordable Care” plans are not the only ones out there now. So maybe another provider might better serve you.

      • Brenda, Like Dena I am losing coverage from BCBS on Dec. 31. I had major medical with a $3500 deductible. I paid for my prescriptions out of pocket as well as my doctor visits. I was fine with this. I was dropped because, “my plan didn’t meet the requirements of the Affordable (sic) Healthcare Plan. It didn’t cover doctor visits, prescriptions, etc…and my deductible, like Brenda’s went up to $6350. “If you like your doctor you can keep him”…isn’t true either, because not all doctors will take people in this plan. “If you like your insurance you can keep it”…is another lie. I’m confused that you can’t understand this. It’s very simple, really. We were lied to…at least those people who didn’t like or vote for Obama saw the writing on the wall…I just didn’t think it would be this widespread. And still some people believe him……and the additional lies he continues to spread.

  11. We will become a nation of part time employees who cannot afford the extremely high deductibles that have been forced on us!! Affordable healthcare is definitely not affordable!

  12. Has the Obama family signed up yet? How about the mother in law? They need to be the first to try this plan and then let the American people know how it worked for them!

    • I especially enjoy knowing that MUSLIMS are currently exempt from obamacare. Illegals, once granted amnesty will also be exempt. Since employers are dumping employees or changing full time people to just under 30 hours per week, WHO do you think the full time jobs will go to? US citizens will be working two or three jobs so that the OWS crowd, welfare queens, unions and illegals will have their FREE healthcare….we’ll be too busy traveling from job to job to even be able to see a doctor.

  13. It aint Obama its the govt ObamaCare benefits the govt. Allen West is an opposing puppet, these puppets are used to make American citizens feel like someone cares. Isnt that exactly what Obama did after Bush served his 2 terms. All the parties are in bed together, we the citizens are the only ones suffering. People have used Obama to bring hatred back to a peak in America [race, religion, straight vs gay, middle eastern hate, etc]. This hate distracts the true problems like printing paper money with no physical assets behind it, more and more jobs going to other countries, etc. Stop looking for a political savior and start looking at ways to derail this greedy and violent govt.

    • It isn’t the people who have used Obama to bring hatred back to America, it’s Obama himself! He is the single most destructive force this country has ever seen and ALL of his policies are at the very least full of hatred for Americans in general, but especially anyone white. I hate to be the one to say this, but the truth hurts!

    • OBAMA KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING AND HE SAID I WILL NEVER COMPROMISE SO DID HIS DEMOCRATS PARTY. AMERICA IS GOING DOWN. WE ARE TOO WICKED BECAUSE LIBERAL MADE IT SO. KILLING THE BABBIES WHILE IT IS IN THE WOMB. THE HOMOSEXUAL, TAKING GOD AND PRAYERS AND BIBLE OUT OF SCHOOL AND EVERYWHERE. WHERE IS AMERICA GOING? DEMOCRATS IS A HATER OF GOD….

  14. I pray to Jesus Christ the Jewish god and Allah that unemployment rises, and stock market soars. The end of Obama care. We have to pay for some mutt cause they cant wake up in the morning and go apply for Medicaid, but the law bidding tax paying citizen has to pay. Its bad enough that members of my community are going to bring this country down. Look at Detroit, and Chicago. These leberals are really helping bring down this country

  15. Obamacare, Oh Obamacare how we don’t want thee. Well boys and girls. We have that train rolling down our throats. Now is the time to vote republican. Even if you dislike us. We can derail this train. But it going to have to be those who do not support it to do it. Hillary now has the devil Soros backing her. So lets give them the lesson they shoved upon us. Unfortunately people will suffer worse over Obummercare than the shut down did. THINK ABOUT IT!
