Skip to comments.Covered California = Colossal Catastrophe
Posted on 04/13/2014 7:01:45 PM PDT by smitty1970
We are a family of six two parents and four children who, because of a rough year in 2013, had to apply for subsidized healthcare coverage under the new Obamacare rules. Yes, count us among the 7.1 million that Kathleen Sebelius is currently claiming are active Obamacare signups. We live in Orange County, Southern California, so our coverage comes through the state exchange, Covered California ...

It does have a happy ending, however.
This is looking more and more like a way to kill off the population.
Unbelievable...Well, I believe it but...
Farking Nightmare and a pathetic joke...
That’s OK, I just found out my deductible is $30,000. EACH. Florida is no bed of roses either.
Converting to communism, like making sausage, isn’t pretty. We should all just shut up and accept what Barack will and will not let us do. /s
Just wait until obamacare takes over employer groups
This is CLASSIC!!! Thanks for posting!!!
What kind of a plan is that? It doesn't seem to be an exchange plan. Even the under-30 'catastrophic' plan (in my state) sets the deductible at $12,700 per family.
This guy has WAY more patience than I. No way do I stay on hold for ANYBODY any 75 minutes.
Do we really want to hear from Californians about how bad this is? They would vote for it again...
We had to destroy the healthcare system to save it.
It’s what the exchange set me up with. Of course I’m dealing with an obvious error but meanwhile, I count as one of the “insureds” even though there effectively is no coverage beyond catastrophic catastrophy.
IIRC, I read something a while back about coverage if you were injured on vacation out of your home state. That you might not be covered by your Obamacare policy.
Another stupid blanket statement about Californians.
FR is California based. Go somewhere else.
Yes, and I donate to FR as often as I can.
New York is mostly rural, too. Doesn’t mean it isn’t dominated by Democrats.
You would stay on hold if you were trying to make sure your kids had healthcare coverage.
Rural? Urban? What I am talking about is so many of you
demonstrate no respect for the millions (yes, millions) of
Californians who happen to be conservative. Shocking, I
know, but Californians don’t vote in lock step. Unfortunately,
we are no longer the majority and among the libs who made us
the minority are one time neighbors of yours. Your gain, our loss.
I live in North Carolina...
You are way too defensive...
I’ll leave it at that.
My husband was laid off in November but had insurance through Jan 2014 and then we would be able to get Cobra. Our Cobra for the 2 of us is 1200.00 a month we have paid for 3 moths so far and if my husband does not get a job soon we will have to cancel the Cobra we just can not afford it anymore. We like it because it was the existing insurance he had through his work something that Obamacare can not and will not do. I hope we have a happy ending soon too.
Having your kids in Medi-Cal is not a happy ending.
Wow you are right about the kids: Family of 4 with $60,000/year income:
“Good news! Based on your income, the children in your household may qualify for Medi-Cal! The adults in your household may qualify for help with paying for health insurance through Covered California. Now, lets take a look at the health insurance plans that may be available in your area!”
At $75,000 the kids don’t have Medi-Cal.
New York is mostly rural, too. Doesnt mean it isnt dominated by Democrats.Looking over the fence at the neighbors while your house is burning?
California used to be conservative (ever hear of our former Governor Ronald Reagan for example?)
California went to hell when leftist dimwits from your east coast moved out here for subsidized (AKA free) education, good jobs/careers and excellent weather.
Our political woes were imported from places like NY and the east coast in general.
No, I’d be there in person to take care of business.
That was 40 years ago...
It’s not 1970 anymore.
I moved to NC from PA when I was 11 years old. In 1978.
No, I don’t remember Reagan running California. Too young.
Who did the family in the article vote for in the last few elections?
Read the rest of the story.
We are a solid Republican family. I was trying to not make that obvious in the story but there are hints.
Another one of Obama’s war on the “rich” suburbanite’s and his plan to meld the suburbs with the inner cities.
Hope and change, baby. Hope and change...
“FR is California based.”
If FR was detroit based, would that mean detroit is a paradise?
Happy because the wife got a job? Not happy because Covered CA is not a cluster frick.
The last conservative who ran for governor here in a regular election was Bill Simon in 2002. He would have won but for the CAGOP sabotaging his campaign. The last conservative to run for governor was in the recall of 2003. The number one guy in the polls was conservative Tom McClintock, UNTIL the CAGOP put up Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yet a Gallup poll showed that McClintock would have won had everyone voted their preferred candidate rather than falling for the RINO swan song, "He can win." Even in 2008, the State upheld traditional marriage.
IOW, it's not what you think. So STFU until you know what you are talking about.
“If FR was detroit based, would that mean detroit is a paradise?”
That is a pretty dumb question since I never claimed that
California is a paradise. The truth is that tons of conservative
Californians visit FR and we don’t find it very damnned useful
for fellow conservatives around the country to lump us in with
the crazies who currently run this place.
I don’t think what you think I think.
I don’t want to hear complaints about Obamacare from people who voted for Obama, and who would likely vote for him again if they could.
Perhaps the family in the story didn’t vote for Obama? Odds are they did, given the last two election results.
Perhaps I shouldn’t complain anymore? Maybe election consequences are unimportant?
At any rate, I’m tired of the subject.
Obamacare is an entitlement program, and entitlement programs never go away.
Dude, pause a moment from foaming at the mouth and read first. Apparently the fellow answered you directly in post 27.
