Skip to comments.Obamacare May Make It 'Literally Impossible' in US Territories to Buy Insurance
Posted on 12/25/2013 4:36:20 PM PST by chessplayer
Obamacare was drafted so poorly that residents in America's territories like the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam may literally be unable to purchase health insurance on the private market next year, even if they are healthy and want to voluntarily do so.

“We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.” - Dumbass Nancy Pelosi
When is this criminal going to be impeached and brought up on charges for what he is doing?
What about DC and Puerto Rico?
I suspect this whole Obamacare law was written for revenge. I suspect Ezekiel wrote this maze of illegal crap in retaliation for Valerie kicking his brother out of the WH.
The Obama Health Care debacle is reminding me more and more of some sort of crazy sitcom, like Lucy and Ethel working in the candy factory.
In all reality, it will probably be illegal in the
territories AND here as well. No private insurance
If and when we ever get back at least one of the three branches of government that hasn't been compromised.
Cue Curly Howard and his woo-woo nyuk-nyuk sounds. Those are the sounds of the Democrat party stooges and the Obama imbeciles who put together the monstrosity that is Obamacare.
Pelosi - “Embrace the suck.”
DC is explicitly fully covered by Obamacare, as detailed in the article.
Don't know about Puerto Rico.
Like Dems said about the 6 million, that’s just 1% of Americans, no-one cares about them.
(remember the TOP 1% Dems endlessly ran against in last years election ???)
That's true. Because what when the carriers are forced to cover those with "pre-existing conditions" (Cancer, AIDs, Hemophilia)...
IT IS NO LONGER INSURANCE!
True, Odungo and the deep sheets believe that this will lead them to the promised land of single payer government control of health care with its wage and price controls. The irony is health insurance was devised as a way around the wage controls of WWII. The economy depends upon a feckless GOP who believe that if they go along they will be loved by the slime stream media like the Bolshies.
hey maybe we should start CALLING it
dumb politicians get elected all the time, Walter, here is an example..
I know its a wrong thread. heh
It’s not insurance now. Insurance doesn’t pay for oil changes and fill ups.
My dad said that missionaries in Puerto Rico will not be able to stay because of Obamacare.
Well, that's why they call it "healthcare insurance" instead of major medical. But it's a hell of a lot closer to being insurance then what it will be when the ObamaCare mandates kick in.
You talk about oil changes and fill ups....those coverage mandates are NOTHING! They contribute about 2% to premium inflation.
You ain't seen nothing yet. The "Guaranteed Issue" mandate will be like buying car insurance after the wreck and expecting the insurer to fix it.
Expect premium increases from 150-300%
Well, you can only enroll during the open enrollment period, or in special cases.
So, supposedly, you can’t break your leg and then apply for insurance, unless you break it during the enrollment period.
In Maine, you can move here with lung cancer, and buy health insurance in the individual market.
Forget health insurance for Guam. Send them life jackets so they don’t drown when the islan tips over.
they don’t call it healthcare insurance they call it healthcare. it’s payment transfers.
Well, it depends on who “they” is.
The insurance companies call it healthcare insurance because it covers “preventative care” , therapy, surgery and other curative procedures. It’s not the same as major med or catastrophic care.
Hell, the RATs are so bold as to refer to MedicAid as “insurance” and it truly is nothing but medical welfare.
