Over 100K New Jersey Residents to Lose Their Affordable Health Plans under Obamacare
National Review ^ | August 19, 2013 | Andrew Johnson

Posted on 08/19/2013 10:23:25 AM PDT by grundle

The latest casualty of Obamacare may be a low-cost New Jersey health-care policy. Though President Obama promised “if you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period,” that will not be the case for approximately 106,000 New Jersey residents whose plans will disappear under the law.

Known as the “basic and essential,” or B&E, health-care plans, the policy costs as little as a couple hundred dollars per month and is the choice of 71 percent of New Jersey residents on the individual insurance market. It provides minimum coverage for things such as doctor’s visits and procedures that don’t involve a hospital stay. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, B&E policy holders will, under Obamacare, “be left with may be a choice among pricey, pricier and priciest” plans.

So what happened to the B&E plans? They don’t meet the regulations imposed by the Affordable Care Act because they do not cover services that the law will force every individual health-insurance plan to provide. The Star-Ledger warns that B&E customers who don’t qualify for a federal tax credit to purchase insurance can likely expect an three or fourfold increase in the cost of their next plan. According to Rutgers University’s Center for State Health Policy director Joel Cantor, the monthly plans of $150 for a 25-year-old male or $1,100 for a family with parents in their 40s will “easily” be three or four times more for a standard policy on the individual market.

Last year, about a quarter of those enrolled in B&E plans were under the age of 24. The plan is also popular among those who retire early and are looking for cheap coverage before they qualify for Medicare.

Hey it was a smart move on their part. They were paying 200 a month and under Ocare they won’t pay anything. It’s free!

They sowed it, they can reap it. I just want to tell them not to look to me for any charity or handouts.

I could not care any less about these people anymore.

The people of New Jersey sat on their asses being the smartest people in the room and talking down to people like me when I warned them about Obamacare.

Now I can only laugh and smile. :)

Typical liberal approach - "fix" an alleged problem for a few by ruining it for the majority, all in the name of "fairness".

0bamacare - a prime example.
Transgender Restrooms and other gay rights.
Affirmative Action, long after any usefulness expired.
Women in Combat.
Anti-gun laws.
Most food regulations.
Most environmental and energy regulations.
All taxes on specific items and services.
Common Core.

Actually, *most* regulations that came out of congress recently are like that, things got harder and more expensive, nothing improved.

King Obama lied. King Obama is a communists. King Obama is as black as any black can be. King Obama is a Muslim, trained in his youth and never left the brotherhood. America is lost because America cannot stop this insane piece of gutter garbage.

They are called low information voters.

Who knows, maybe they are smarter than we are? They know the game and the game is — I’ll vote for you if you give me stuff. Actually, that is probably what politics is about anyway and specifically pork. It is the definitely the worst side of politics.

Hey, somebody in NJ ask Mayor Corey Booker about this, and watch him shit a brick.

Remember, he is the anointed new Senator from the once great state of New Jersey.

Will he kiss Obama’s ass or actually think for himself on this problem?

Anyone giving odds on what he will do, or not do?
