Most Washington State Insurance Plans Being Cancelled

In Washington, most of the 290,000 people covered by insurance plans they purchased on the individual market received letters this fall telling them that their plans are going away.

Bill Fullner has reached his breaking point.

It started with the letter from his health-insurance company informing him it was canceling his plan and offering him a new one that’s nearly twice as expensive. Then the 60-year-old retiree from Mount Vernon heard about more people like himself with canceled plans and soaring premiums. Finally, he spent hours on the phone and computer trying — and failing — to find a new option that he likes.

This whole experience has converted a lifelong Democrat into a foot soldier for the Republican Party,” Fullner said.

He’s not alone in his frustration.

    Fits perfectly with the Little Dictators plan for chaos. Only the government can fix it by a single payer plan.

    • I don’t even know what “single payer plan” means–I’ve never had the slightest interest in finding out. But if it comes government-mandated, I won’t be joining that either. So all of you who intend to keep saying “it’s the law” no matter what that becomes, get over it. I am not there, period. I have made the greatest discoveries in all of history–even death doesn’t faze me (I don’t put it past today’s–insane–governmental authorities to force their version of a cup of hemlock upon me, eventually, as I expect they will think me a bother to them in the end). So the rest of you can keep telling yourselves it’s not that bad; don’t expect me to fit into that conversation, ever–because it is that bad, to me, and worse.

        Think Medicare for everyone. That’s single payer. And even if you don’t sign up you’ll be covering the costs somehow as they’re not going to do that without some kinds of taxes to cover it. Except for illegals and those outside the US of course.

        Single Payer?
        Think IPAB unilaterally, without oversight, “no political input/accountability”
        deciding what is
            cost effective
        so Medicare can “stay within (reduced) budget”
        Oh? you need that new, improved, state of the art pacemaker for your heart?
        Naaah, not cost effective!
        Here, use this recycled one, it is refurbished and the former user only died 2 weeks ago!

    I’m in WA, and my nice, inexpensive policy was cancelled. I was given 3 new options, the cheapest of which is double what I was paying. And it appears to me it pays less than the percentage I was getting before. But! I’m (a man) covered for Maternity and all the Pap Smears
    I want.

    • Mike D says:

      Yeah, but it is a “better deal” per Obama. Which I guess means costing twice as much for added coverage you can’t use. If insurers had done this in the past, they’d have likely been put in jail for fraud for charging double and adding coverage that can’t possibly be used by the insured. But now they are required to add just such things.

      I think the whole maternity care thing shows how ridiculous progressivism is. Sebelius basically said that all health insurance has things you’ll never use in it. Which of course is vastly different from covering things someone can’t ever possibly use. We know of course that the reason they did it is to spread the cost of women’s coverage to the whole insurance pool.

    The Republican Party is just the other face of the same monster.

      I would prefer that a fringy cook conspiracy theorist, hater and traitor like Ventura continue to represent the loony left. thanks

    A new born conservative is nothing more than a liberal who’s been mugged by reality….

  5. D. Self says:

    Fullner deserves what he gets. “Suck it up and deal with it”, this is what Obama is telling you sucker….

    • Mike D says:

      Yeah he was perfectly content with someone else paying to cover other people. But now that it has landed in his lap, suddenly he’s not for that.

    If I recall, Washington state overwhelmingly voted for Obama.

    Nice job suckers.

  7. tom0mason says:

    John Wayne complained about the liberal 40 years ago, and it’s still relevant today!

  8. Owen says:

    I feel badly for people who voted against Obama and are getting screwed over. They knew what was going to happen and tried to prevent it. As for those people who voted for Obama and are now complaining about his policies – tough luck. You’re getting exactly what you voted for. You fools deserve every ounce of pain you’re getting. You’re the engineers of your own misfortune.
